Alcohol Lied to Me… Again!
By Craig Beck
The book ‘Alcohol Lied to Me’ has helped tens of thousands of people get back in control of their drinking thanks to its unique and simple to follow message.
But alcohol is the most devious and deceptive drug on planet earth and occasionally people fall back under its spell. This journey backward virtually always starts with the same sentence being uttered: ‘Surely just one drink won’t hurt’.
Just one drink…
It seems such an innocuous action that it couldn’t possibly cause any substantial drama to unfold. In reality, it is the same as hoping to take just one little step off a cliff. It’s only one seemingly insignificant step but the consequences are rapid, irreversible and severe. Both events start off an unstoppable series of events.
In Alcohol Lied to Me… Again, Craig gives you the tools to once again break the cycle of alcohol addiction. You will discover why this relapse can be a good thing and how you use it to ensure you stay sober for the rest of your life.
If you have started drinking again… this book will guide you quickly back to a happy and fulfilled life, completely free from the misery of alcohol.
There are three reasons why people buy this book.
Now you find that your drinking is as prolific as ever and you are waking up every morning feeling terrible again.
The second most common reason for buying this book is your memories of all the pain and misery that alcohol caused you have started to fade and you are starting to feel conflicted. You still see all of your friends consuming their social poison and you are wondering if you could perhaps have the occasional drink.
And finally, the third possibility is that you have incorrectly assumed this is the action pack sequel to the first book, the one where alcohol comes back and give my ass a good kicking all over the place.
If you fall into this third category, I thank you for buying the book and respectfully suggest you prepare yourself for disappointment.
I am going to assume that you have already stopped drinking using my first book and that you managed to remain sober for a fair period of time. You are here because you are either strongly tempted to drink again or you have already made the mistake of assuming that ‘just one drink won’t hurt’.
Do not despair
Alcohol is the most powerfully deceptive drug on planet earth. You weakened its hold over you by quitting the first time around but you can’t kill it.
Alcohol will never change.
Alcohol will never get less harmful or be able to be controlled. Every time you go back to it, the outcome will be the same. It will smile nicely, tell you it loves you and then immediately try to kill you.
A lot of people, who start drinking again having stopped with my help, find themselves in a panic. Nothing had worked to control their drinking until they found my books and websites.
When they start drinking again they get suddenly very worried that even the thing that saved them is flawed and powerless again alcohol. They start to consider that they are profoundly unfixable and broken beyond repair.
None of this is true and is merely the drug twisting the knife and striving to complete the level. Alcohol wants you to return to your old drinking patterns but it also wants you to accelerate them exponentially until you die.
Why? You may well ask!
Because that is what alcohol does, it is its reason to be. Your relationship with booze is similar to the relationship between the frog and the scorpion in the famous short story.
Alcohol is out to kill you, no matter what you do or how little your involvement with it.
Would you advise the frog to carry fewer scorpions across the river, perhaps limiting the activity to the weekends only? Or would it be much more logical that he never offers a ride to something that wants to kill him stone dead?
It is entirely natural for you to be feeling depressed because you have started drinking again. I give you permission to feel angry, despondent and disappointed in yourself and even me and my books – that didn’t work!
You have a license to hold your own personal pity party but let me tell you that permission expires at the end of this opening chapter. There is no value in beating yourself up about this event, grieving for your loss or sobriety or pointing the finger of blame somewhere.
The scam is over
Alcohol is a confidence trickster of unbelievable prowess. It is his job to scam you and he is relentless in the pursuit of that goal. Is it not true that if you were pickpocketed in the street one day, for a long time after the event you would be hyper-vigilant, to guard against a repeat occurrence.
However, if after a few years of being super cautious no further attempts to steal from you were made, wouldn’t you lower your guard a little?
