Book Description

Quitting destructive drinking is the easy part - staying quit is the hard part.What do you do tonight, tomorrow, next weekend, when you go on vacation, for the rest of your life?

Okay, I quit. Now what? is filled with practical strategies and concepts to make the most out of living sober.

Many people expect too much out of life just because they quit drinking. This is an honest and raw view of life after liquor. Living sober can be the greatest thing you ever do - but you must be an active participant in your own Re-Invention to get the most out of sobriety.

This thought provoking book will get you thinking and planning your new sober lifestyle. Personal responsibility and pride are the foundation of the principles.

This is NOT a 12-step book or religious based. It is nontraditional and sometimes controversial. Adult language and situations are used in this book. NOT for the timid or bashful. It is written for those of us who want to control our destructive drinking and live a fully engaged, normal life.

Mark lives what he writes. He is a former drunk himself. He brings "real life" strategies to this book. Okay, I quit. Now what? is helpful to steppers and non-steppers alike.

"I have discovered that there is a very large subculture of non-steppers who want to succeed at sobriety, enjoy their life and be proud of accomplishing it on their own. Okay, I quit. Now what? is an alternative to traditional step systems. It is not religious based; it is personal responsibility based. Sobriety is an evolutionary process. Don’t just recover… Re-Invent yourself."

This book has 12 chapters that will give you ideas on how to handle sobriety and make the most out of living sober. It is practical and real. The purpose is to get you thinking and get you involved in maintaining your sobriety. Take control of your sobriety and get the most out of your life. I believe this book will help you go in the right direction, or at least get YOU to think on your own.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Mark A. Tuschel, author of: Living Sober Sucks (but living drunk sucks more) and Drunk Dad, Sober Dad.

Mark is over 8 years clean and sober. He also works as a personal sobriety coach, helping others discover what THEY want out of sobriety.

"I want to empower others to think, enrich their own lives and be proud of what they have accomplished. Far too many people believe that they lack willpower, yet the exhibit willpower every day within their life. I want to show people that they can harness their natural willpower to take control over their life.

I want to help them help themselves. Reliance on systems, programs and outside powers only saps a person of their self-esteem. While we all need support, guidance and fellowship at times, the individual must ultimately become personally responsible and accountable for their own behavior. This builds pride, which then creates a feeling of genuine self-esteem."

Mark Tuschel is a PhD - Previously heavy Drinker. After 32 years of daily drinking, his marriage and life collapsed. Determined to take control over alcohol he made the CHOICE to live sober.

By discovering techniques to use his own willpower, he has been able to maintain sobriety for more than eight years (without relapse) and rebuild his sense of self worth and ultimately his life.

Mark is not anti-alcohol or a prohibition lunatic. He honestly and openly admits that he misses his old friend alcohol, but he also realizes that drinking will not improve his life or his chances for a better future. Accepting this precept is why he chooses to remain sober.

Mark runs the website LivingSoberSucks.com A free website dedicated to helping other problem drinkers. Blog articles and podcasts are all FREE.

Mark has been involved in radio broadcast for over 20 years. Starting as an on-air DJ, producing comedy for All-Star Radio, ACN, ESPN Radio, Animal Radio Network and more. He currently travels the country doing public speaking engagements and speaking at prisons to assist inmates in preparing for re-immersion into society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why arent there more reviews on this great book?? July 10, 2012
By Shan344
Format:Paperback
Anybody who is newly sober, or not so new, should read this book. I've been sober for 37 days and have read at least 10 books on how to get there and how to stay there and Mark Tuschel's books have been the best. Yes he can be a little "cocky" at times but I think thats why I enjoy them so much. I love the fact he says what he thinks (alot of the times I'm thinking the same thing). I ordered both books on my Kindle Fire and have highlighted the things he says that I think are most important to me and my sobriety. When I'm feeling down or just need extra reassurance I can go back and read those sentences or paragraphs. Read "Living Sober Sucks" and then "Okay, I Quit, Now What?" I have no regrets ordering these books because they have given me 37 days of enjoyment when that same $20 would have been spent on booze and regret!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you April 18, 2013
By Glezos
Format:Kindle Edition
Mark, I never write reviews but wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you for this book.

I share similar views on having a positive attitude, AA alternatives, not letting sobreity impede fun or parties and holy crap how much money I saved from not spending it on alcohol. Spoiler alert, those are key points for those of you who have not read this EXCELLENT and HILARIOUS book.

I drank for 20 years. Woke up one day and said I'm gonna quit. I read this book to start me down the path and so glad I did. As of this review, I'm 7 months hangover-less.

Cheers!

And THANK YOU MARK!!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!

Mike

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the honesty of this book. I have always had a difficult time with AA. I know AA has helped millions of people but I was never comfortable at the meetings. I have enjoyed sobriety and this book made me feel like "less of an oddball" for not loving AA. Again, I want to stress that AA is a godsend for so many, but if is just not you thing, I think this book canbe very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Follow-Up to "Living Sober Sucks...." June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this immediately after reading "Living Sober Sucks....", and I am so glad I did. The book is just great, through-and-through. Mark is just as candid as in his first book, and it does contain some excellent advice on how to handle sticky situations once one has quit drinking. I know that reading his books right in the first weeks after quitting drinking is part of why I have been sober for almost 6 weeks (as of the writing of this review). I really can't recommend this enough. Mark takes no prisoners and it does not come with a soft sugar-coating. If you want to quit, read this, especially if you've read "Living Sober Sucks....."

2.0 out of 5 stars Repeats much of his original book May 5, 2013
By Laurie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As such, you can get everything you need to know by reading the first one. There is no need to spend extra money on the second, since there is no new information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truthful and Authentic approach to being sober! January 22, 2013
By M. Lacy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really looking for a book more geared toward middle aged women with drinking issues. I sampled a few books on my kindle and this book caught me right away! Mark speaks my language. Every chapter addresses so much of how I feel and what steps I need to take to stay the course. I'm non religious and have never connected with any other program or philosophy before. I love his no BS dialog, an truly feel like he is talking to ME! He has worksheets, which I would normally never do due to laziness, but I printed them out and did them all and dated it. I want to do this task every month to review and see the progress I make with my sobriety. I think the worksheets would work for anyone with life goals, having nothing to do with alcohol. So my husband is doing this with me.
I just wanted to recommend another book where the author is very down to earth and makes you feel like he's having a conversation with you. It is The Paleo Solution by Rob Wolf. I try to have a very clean diet and drinking was counter productive to my health. So with both these books by my side I am able to be regularly reminded why I want to continue to reach my goals!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tough talk, but very little real information. June 23, 2013
By Jeff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We get it. Swear. Cuss. Beat us up. It's what we deserve if we're addicts, right? I understand the approach, but somehow this book didn't help me with the facts. In my opinion, lots of hot air, and no substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read Mark's first book and.... June 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
burned through it very quick, and found it helpful. I like his common man writing style. I quit drinking, best thing I've done lately! His first book, and to a lesser extent this book, played a huge part in my success. I felt firmly "quit" by the time I was halfway through this second book, and haven't finished it or picked it up since, well, during over 5 months of sobriety!
