The author is a therapist working in public health, helping drinkers from all backgrounds. His research with hundreds of clients showed the best ways to overcome alcohol issues. In this landmark book, he passes on that knowledge to you. 

Alcohol and You does not judge you or preach at you. Instead, it treats you as the unique human being that you are, calmly explaining the options that are open to you. You can then choose the way forward that feels right for you, which will produce the results you want.

Written in an uplifting and easy-to-follow format, "Alcohol and You" clearly explains:

  • How to self-diagnose alcohol dependence in minutes
  • How to motivate yourself to change and enjoy the process
  • How to decide whether cutting down or quitting is right for you
  • Medications and strategies to help deal with cravings
  • The best, free support to help maintain your progress over time

Alcohol and You will leave you feeling inspired, fully-informed, and excited about your future.

Excellent, Best Yet

I have read many books on the topic and this is by far the best. Filled with many really great tips (Watch the full movie being my favourite) this book really has helped me.

Highly recommend anyone trying to quit or cut down to give this book a read.

Great information, terrible narration

This book is full of very helpful and useful information by a writer who is obviously an expert in his field. However as an audiobook it is terrible. The narrator sounds like A.I., like those automated answering services you get when you phone up somewhere. He has very strange pronunciation and intonation. Also when the narrator reads quotes from the expert's clients he puts on a fake annoying US accent. I am going to return this and get the Kindle version instead. Would recommend listening to a sample to see how you feel about the narrator first.

Sadly very boring

Boring, uninspiring and unhelpful. Alcohol explained by William Porter is by far a better book with a lot more information.

So helpful!

Lewis Davis finds a calm and non-judgemental voice, he is on point with his content and has the right amount of expertise, examples and exercises to help someone control their alcohol consumption or to stop overall.

The most helpful tool I found was "to play the movie till the end".

I can highly recommend.

Excellent Help

I saw myself in so many of these chapters, it was like looking into a mirror. Chapter 5 Choosing your Path was incredible and summed up what difficulties I personally have been struggling with. This chapter gave me an insight to my path forward, This book will help you to. I recommend the Kindle & audible versions

The best recovery book I’ve experienced yet

I have tried multiple alcohol recovery books and have been disappointed with everyone of them. The labels, the shame, the stories of absolutely crazy and horrible experiences that I could not relate to were very offputting. This book however was a light at the end of the tunnel of so much struggling. I have a feeling I will be listening to it multiple times and checking out all of the other resources that have been suggested on the website. I am so grateful to have come across this book.

This did the trick for me!!!

I purchase this book and listen to it. I've been 2 months sober on my terms. After giving up a bottle to a bottle and a half of wine a night, magically I've lost 15 lb with no dieting, and my blood pressure is falling back in line.

I’m confident this is going to change my life going for.

I recognized so many of my situations in my life. I’m starting right now to change and go forward without dependence on this terrible additive drug.
