Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Donna Cornett, founder of Drink/Link Moderate Drinking Programs, is a former problem drinker and holds an MA and California College Teaching Credential in psychology. She was in her 30's when she started worrying about her drinking.  Even though she wasn't suffering from any alcohol-related problems, she was health conscious and concerned she might become an alcoholic if she didn't do something about it early on.

At the time her only options were abstinence and AA which didn't work for her because she didn't think her drinking was serious enough to stop altogether.  As a result, she started counseling drinkers in 1985 and after much research, developed the Drink/Link Moderate Drinking Program in 1988.  She no longer has a drinking problem, knows when to stop and never worries about her drinking as a result. 


Cornett has counseled thousands of drinkers, is an expert on substance use and abuse has been featured or consulted for articles in numerous publications, including Time Magazine, ABCNews.com, Esquire and WebMD. She is also the author of Moderate Drinking - Naturally!, Moderate Drinking Made Easy and Beat Binge Drinking.

More About the Author

I was in my 30's when I started worrying about my drinking. I wasn't suffering from any alcohol-related problems, but I was health conscious and heavy drinking and its consequences didn't fit into my future. And even though I was concerned about my drinking, I didn't think it was serious enough to stop and join AA - my only options at the time.

Armed with an MA and California College Teaching Credential in psychology, I started counseling drinkers in 1985 and started Drink/Link Moderate Drinking Programs in 1988. I believed there was a real need to offer a commonsense moderate drinking program to problem drinkers like myself - teaching drinkers to modify drinking habits and attitudes and reduce alcohol consumption. Problem drinkers outnumber alcoholics four to one. And a problem drinker is still capable of reversing a drinking problem and returning to safe, responbsible drinking with early intervention. If you offer this huge population of problem drinkers - who suffer from years of alcohol abuse and eventually graduate to alcoholism - a sensible, middle-of-the-road program you could prevent millions of drinkers from crossing the line to alcoholism!

I haven't struggled with a drinking problem for years. I automatically know when to stop and enjoy the peace of mind knowing I'll never worry about my drinking again. I've written three books, 7 Weeks to Safe Social Drinking: How to Effectively Moderate Your Alcohol Intake, Moderate Drinking - Naturally! Herbs and Vitamins to Control Your Drinking and the latest, the Moderate Drinking Made Easy Workbook: Drinker-Friendly Tips and Exercises to Control Drinking and Reduce Alcohol Craving and Consumption.

I invite you to call or email me with questions or concerns about your drinking and I'll give you my take. Totally free and confidential. In closing, keep this thought in mind: A healthy lifestyle - physically and mentally - is the antidote to alcohol abuse.

Take Care,
Donna Cornett

Format: Paperback
I don't know if I was a problem drinker or alcoholic. I don't care - I'm not into labels. But I do know I wanted to drink less and become less dependent on alcohol. And 7 Weeks helped me. One message in the book is you've got to take responsibility for your drinking instead of chalking it up to genes or a bad childhood or whatever. Another message is you can change if you want to. And Cornett gives concrete tips to cut down.

Who care if you're a "problem drinker" or "alcoholic"? If you want to drink less and have a healthier relationship with alcohol, 7 Weeks is for you. I'd pay twice the price for this book if I had to do it all over again.

This book has been a lifesaver for me. For years I enjoyed social drinking without problems, but the last couple of years I've questioned if I was drinking too much. This program showed me how to pace my drinking, how to make a drinking plan in advance before I started drinking(which really worked)and how to stick to my limit fairly easily. It also made alcohol less important to me - a huge step in the right direction to get back on the healthy social drinking path again. I recommend this book to anyone questioning their drinking. It's a straightforward approach to drink less and drink appropriately.

Format: Paperback
I wish I had discovered this book 10 years ago. It spelled out how to achieve moderate drinking. It was easy to follow and best of all it worked for me! There are only a few books out that cover the subject of changing drinking behavior. One is filled with stats, boring and hard for me to stay interested in. Another one was too general - no specifics to help me manage drinking. 7 Weeks held my interest and gave specific tips to keep alcohol consumption down and to beat problem drinking.

Format: Paperback
This is the best book I've read about moderate drinking and how to get there.

Most of the time I don't have a problem with alcohol but sometimes it takes
over and I drink too much. I have found the suggestions in this book invaluable,
especially pre-planning my drinking behavior with the tips in the program,
eating while I'm drinking and watching the clock to slow down my drinking.
That's just for starters. Cornett gives lots of tips and also works on your
attitude about alcohol and its importance in your life.

I think this book could change the world and have given it to friends who
drink too much.

I've really cut down on my drinking with this book! This program was simple, easy to follow and you don't have to take drugs to drink less. I've read several other moderate drinking books but this is the best one.
The other ones were too vague or wanted you to take prescription meds (which I think is ridiculous)to be successful with their programs. Not for me.
As a mom and professional woman I would have a lot to lose if I developed a serious drinking problem. This book showed me the way so I can have a couple of drinks, enjoy myself, but never worry about drinking too much. Thank you Donna Cornett and Drink/Link!

I read that book and thought it was certainly helpful and could be useful for problem drinkers. However, if you are an alcoholic, this book could give you false hope that you can beat the disease. Some people just can't drink. While the techniques in the book are certainly efficient, I did not like the overly positive tone and the way they are presented, like they are some kind of magic potion against problem drinking. Just be really careful.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The other reviewers put it very well but I wanted to add to the list of reviews so that other readers can see that there are a number of people who found it a terrific methodology. I love to be social and have fun. Much of my social life involves food and drink. I had gone overboard too many times and caused problems as a result. I was very motivated because I did not want to have to give up drinking. Fortunately Donna found a system that is very easy to follow. She presented it in a way which is easy to understand and provided a lot of pointers which help.

If you want to explore a realistic way to help you regulate your drinking, this book is worth reading. Simple and rational guidelines are presented, but remember, you must do all the work; there is no magic! I highly recommend giving it a try.
