About the Author
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
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.

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.
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.
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!
