Review

"I work with people and their whanau/families on a daily basis who have, have had or have recovered from Alcohol and Other Drug issues.  The damage caused by AOD overuse and abuse is enormous and has ongoing negative effects on our society and future generations mainly due to observation and learned behaviours.  I really like the approach that this book takes in not attempting to stop drinking totally.  It instead explains and coaches how to manage and cope with consuming alcohol so that the damaging effects may be minimised.  This is a very useful supportive book for 'drinkers' and their families.  It is a book that is very easy to read and understand.  I really like the quotes, sayings andtools contained therein.  This book is much bigger than just the social and familial issues with alcohol - It is in a very big way about 'Your Beautiful Mind'.  It fits very well with my style of practice and that is to start with the basics and move onwards and upwards from there. I see in the book an AHA (awakening, honesty, action) moment in the book.  I really get the reference to wisdom (The smart person knows what to say, the wise person knows when to say it) and the associated learning.  I will be recommending this 'must read' book to my clients and their whanau/families and anybody else who will listen".
~ Philipe Eyton, Counsellor, Life and Leadership Coach, BSocP, NZAC (Stud)


"One thing that I like about this book is that the author doesn't trash other recovery programs whether she agrees with them or not.  This approach is very different (and refreshing) from other books I've read that claim to be the "real or only solution" which involves tearing down other methods in the process, but as Cassandra's book alludes--one form of recovery may work for some people and not others--it depends on the person, their physiology, background, life experience, etc.
At first, I thought the segments about advertising would be boring but they actually really appealed to the part of me that loves science, facts, and proof.  Reading the explanations led to many "Aha!" moments!
I also felt so relieved to read there is a sober/not drinking movement going on. I felt relieved and hopeful. How I wish this was going on when I started my own drinking career in my early teens.  
I'm feeling so grateful to Cassandra for writing it.  There is so much vital information packed into this book and I wish fervently that it ends up on the best seller list!
~ Lisa R.
"I like the content of the book a lot. As an ex-drunk who quit for both mental and physical health reasons, it's very affirming. I like her comment that she's yet to meet an ex-drinker who preferred life as a drinker.

I think it will appeal to both people who are considering change and people who have made a change to their drinking and want both affirmation and some information so they can explain why to their friends.

I like its meandering style (it makes me think of sharing in a group). It's too good a message to ignore."
~ Andrew Nicholls


"I see people that I would love to give this book recommendation to.  They need this in their lives-a few of who would not consider, they have any problem with alcohol, nor have any desire to stop drinking - but I liked this book because the message is that you take control of how you steer the ship.  You can choose to decrease and manage your drinking or you can choose to omit alcohol altogether from your life.

Alcohol is abused and I know a few young people (18-25yrs) that haven't a clue of what they're drinking or the impacts on them physically, mentally or emotionally.  This is huge.  Yet each and every week they are returning to the bottle to find some solace in drinking or in fact getting pissed.

I love the connection Cassandra shares with herself in this book.  The Sobriety Journal she mentions and has created is a fantastic tool - and I would recommend people use conjunction with this book and your own journey- it will do wonders.  It's a great reflective tool also to go back to down the track, as Cassandra has openly displayed herself.

I am quite surprised myself about the new knowledge I gained from what I read in this book.  And wondered why when I was drinking did I never stop to consider what I was drinking, what my drink was made of and how- never ever!  I can remember thinking, I wonder how many calories are in this beer.  Or how much sugar.  But never looked it up as such, as I didn't actually want to know at the time.  I was in somewhat of a denial.  I just wanted to consume it anyway.  I quite often was sick in the evening or the next day after a binge.

So this information needs to be shared and is available in this book.  I think that's fantastic.  It's not too complex.  At first, I wondered if I would see my younger relatives reading this and relating to it.  And thought, maybe not.  But then when momentum picked up and the diverse realities were seen and heard - I thought it would relate to many soft spots they have and I hopefully allow them to take control of themselves and their drinking.
"Loving what I read. I am seeing some home truths and common vulnerabilities which makes this book relatable to many."
~ Jo-Maitera
