The Strange Way I Escaped The Alcohol Trap:
Alcohol wasn't always a problem for me, for a long time I LOVED it!
People considered me to be the life and soul of the party… a man who could handle his drink!
I was proud of this reputation, and at this point, it didn’t worry me in the slightest.
I am not sure at what point my drinking habit changed from ‘social pleasantry’ to be a primary focus of my day-to-day life.
Such is the deceptive nature of this drug; it takes so long to get hooked that you don’t even notice there is a problem (until it is too late).
Alcoholism is very much like the old story of the frog in the boiling pan of water…
If you drop a live frog into a boiling pan it will jump straight out of the water in shock, but if you place the frog in cold water and slowly increase the heat it will eventually boil to death – this is alcohol addiction personified.
In my early thirties, I started to question if my drinking was usual, of course deep down inside, I knew it wasn’t, but I was desperate to prove to myself that I wasn’t doing anything wrong.
I probably spent five years fighting to keep drinking; I just couldn’t see how life could be worth living without alcohol.
I was so out of control I refused to go anywhere with my family that prevented me from drinking.
Even if I went to the movies, I would sneak a bottle of whiskey into the theater with me so I could add it my big gulp!
Alcohol turned me into a lousy father and a bad husband. I would refuse to go anywhere with the family unless I could be sure I could drink once I got there.
Soon my drinking started to affect my health, and at this point, I started to sit up and take notice. I became very scared about what was happening, and I tried everything I could to wrestle control back from the drug.
I tried locking away my alcohol and giving the key to my ex-wife, I tried going cold turkey, forcing myself to have painful dry months and I even bought dangerous prescription only medication online.
Nothing made the slightest bit of difference to my drinking.
Eventually, I reached rock bottom… I was at my lowest point, I had tried everything, and yet I was drinking more than I ever had in my life.
I was slowly killing myself, and I couldn’t slow down. It was at that point that I decided I had to do something different or I was going to die and leave my children without a father.
I tried to quit drinking a hundred times before and every time I would use willpower in some form. The moment I stopped using this weak, broken solution everything got easy. I no longer had to force myself to avoid the thing I wanted the most on planet earth. I just fell out of love with alcohol.
When I realized just how many people I could help, I took the exact same approach I had used to fix my own problem drinking and created an online course for other people to follow.
Since then over 100,000 people have discovered their own happy, sober life - want to be the next?

Plus I will give you a free copy of my bestselling book 'Alcohol Lied To Me':
"I was very sceptical this would work - I feel like I had tried everything.
This is just astonishing how easy it was to stop drinking. I no longer even like it let alone miss it. If you are thinking about how damaging drinking alcohol is to your life you need to invest in this.
I have a wine cabinet and liquor cupboard full of 'attractively labelled poison' that I don't even want to open. My partner is still drinking beer and I don't feel I am missing out on anything at all.
I am passionate and brightly aware and awake and looking forward to experiencing the rest of my life.
Thank you so much Craig.", Linda Hemsworth
