Description

Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home and a successful media career. A director of several companies & at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful & functioning professional man in spite of a ‘2 bottles of wine a night’ drinking habit. For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn't believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.

He tried countless ways to cut down; attempting ‘dry months’, banning himself from drinking spirits, only drinking at the weekend & special occasions (and found that it is amazing how even the smallest of event can suddenly become ‘special’). All these 'will power' based attempts to stop drinking failed (exactly as they were destined to do). Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction & one by one all the lies he had previously believed started to fall apart. For the first time he noticed that he genuinely didn’t want to drink anymore. In this book he will lead you though the same amazing process.

Thousands of people just like you have quit drinking using this method and their feedback and advice has gone into creating this extended and updated edition. The Craig Beck stop drinking method is unique...

  • No need to declare yourself an alcoholic.
  • A permanent cure, not a lifetime struggle.
  • No group meetings or expensive rehab.
  • No humiliation, no pain and 100% no ‘will power’ required.
  • Treats the source of the problem not the symptoms.

    Worth a listen

    I would say I am glad I bought this book...as a social drinker who would not classify themselves as an alcoholic. However I can clearly see where drinking has a negative impact on my life and has to go if I want to achieve the goals I actually care about...weight management and other personal goals that require focus and energy.

    I thought the author was a bit over the top at times, but his message rang true and there is some good information and common sense stuff you might need to hear, if you are struggling with some issues based around this socially acceptable drug habit.

    Has it "cured me" of my desire to drink? Sure...until I go out Sat night. BUT I will listen to it a few times more to help me in truly changing how I look at it, and see it for the poison it really is.

    Good luck :)

    ROCK SOLID! A MUST READ! WRONG ON AA THOUGH...

    Would you listen to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition again? Why?

    Yes. This book is a fundamental read for those who have an alcohol or any addition and want to become free. Craig mentioned in the book that AA fails because it requires the use of will power to stop drinking. Either Craig has never been to an AA meeting, read the Big Book, or ever talked to an AA member. AA uses a spiritual and denounces will power as a path to find and maintain sobriety. As an AA member who seeks knowledge from many sources, I urge Craig to amend this area of his book.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Craig of course.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Learning my ego was the cause of all the detriment in my life.

    Want to Quit Drinking... This is worth a listen.

    What made the experience of listening to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition the most enjoyable?

    The number one ingredient that can make or break any Audible recording for me is the reader. No matter how great a story is, if the reader's voice or method of reading doesn't fit, it degrades the experience for me greatly.

    Beck has a great voice and, as the author, captures the emotion behind his writing perfectly. His perspective, points and solutions are very compelling. This is definitely the logical, thinking man's guide to quitting any addictive drug, not just drinking.

    The most persuasive point he asserts is that alcohol is just as dangerous and just as addictive as any deplorable street drug. Beck points out that the only differences between alcohol and other drugs is that alcohol is legal, easily accessible, prettily packaged, glamorously marketed and socially acceptable. Other than that, there is no difference. It is life destroying, brain altering and expensive. It robs the user of time, desire, opportunity, money, good health, career, family, marriage and so much more. If used for long enough, alcohol, like any drug will eventually own your life.

    A persuasive tool he uses to illustrate his point is looking at how adamantly people cling to their excuses about their alcohol use. To do this, he inserts the names of other addictive drugs in place of the word “alcohol”. Examples (not direct from the book):

    "I'm not addicted to heroin whatsoever. I take it only during social events and on weekends."

    "I don't crave cocaine and it’s not like I do it all day. I only take at it night, after a long day at work. I owe it to myself and it helps me relax."

    This is the part that really drove it home for me as I have made some of these excuses. “I don’t drink to get drunk. I just really love a good glass of wine.” Insert heroin instead and you see how ridiculous it is.

    Finally, Beck presents solutions on how to move forward: coping with the withdrawals and the realities of looking ahead to a sober future.

    Beck’s “Alcohol Lied to Me” is a persuasive, logical guide to help readers quit drinking for life, woven with reason and humor. I would highly recommend it.

    Any additional comments?

    I would prefer less self-promotion and Audible reviews throughout the book. As I already bought the book I really did not need to hear them. Nevertheless, as they are placed at the end of the chapters, they are very easy to skip over.

    Finally, in the US TFT is typically referred to as EFT. As weird as it may appear, it is very powerful.

    Good luck!

    Great book, great narration

    This book truly works. You learn why alcohol is so bad for you, even that "heart healthy" red wine. It is ingrained in your mind that alcohol has no good purpose; it is simply a toxic poison that is attractively packaged and seductively marketed.

    This knowledge is backed up by 4 different hypnosis tracks that eliminate your subconscious desire to drink. No conscious will power is required, because your subconscious mind no longer wants to drink. And it works!

    Add to all that his great voice and narrating abilities, and you have a 5-star book.

    CRAIG IS RIGHT... YOU CANT EXPLAIN THIS TO OTHERS!

    Would you listen to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition again? Why?

    YES... Because each time I listened to it I picked up on parts that meant something different to me. It's probably because my mind started to clear up from being sober. Just like teaching yourself to do anything you have to teach yourself to be sober. Playing this audio here and there after listening to its entirety really helped me when I was feeling like my ego was taking over. I recommend getting the Quit Drinking Hypnosis. I cant explain the freedom I feel from this technique. I've been a heavy drinker since I was a teenager and now I do NOT have a single urge to drink. I use to plan my whole day around drinking and now I feel total freedom.

    Thank you Craig...

    What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is very easy to understand and listen to.

    Points out the blaringly obvious

    Would you listen to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition again? Why?

    I have listened to the book a couple times already and will more than likely listen to it again. The message is straight forward and obvious. Just takes some heads a bit more to accept what's right in front of them. :)

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The authour. His personal experiences are helpful and real. Makes a difference.
