Quitting Drinking : Case Study 1
Dear Mr. Beck,
I just wanted to take some time out and thank you for your book Alcohol Lied to Me. I have struggled with drinking since the age of 17. Sunday I turned 42 and have followed all the steps in your book for 3 weeks and now have 6 weeks clean. I listened to your book repeatedly every single day of those 3 weeks.
The 21 days was not painful for me as I usually feel horrible and emotionally unstable when going cold turkey like this.
The truly amazing thing is that alcohol is now like poison to me. It’s like somebody is trying to hand me a bottle of some strong dangerous chemical that will harm me.
Why would I drink that? Your book has shown me that there was no benefit to drinking at all, only harm. And I really feel that now which is amazing.
Every minute of your book amazed me with eye-opening revelations
I’ve gone through the AA system 4 times, have had 3 sponsors, and did the 12 steps twice. And it would always be white knuckle for me battling inside my mind every day. Always sad deep down inside wishing I could have a drink and feeling that I was missing out on it. But at the same time scared to drink because of all the bad things it causes me. That is all gone now, I am really at peace.
Also, there is a feeling deep down inside that I do not want to drink and it is a fantastic feeling.
I came across your book by chance on an audiobook website and downloaded it.
Every minute of your book amazed me with eye-opening revelations that were well thought out and logically sounded true. I couldn’t argue with any of it and after finishing put your plan into motion.
So thank you Mr. Beck. Your book has done amazing things for me so far, you are completely right about all the benefits of quitting drinking.
I wanted to thank you personally for helping me save my life. I was ready for the change and that same day I found your book, alcohol lied to me.
You told my story and gave me a new perspective that ended the battle. I can not thank you enough for the gift you have given me. I was amazed to find out you are a photographer like me as well.
Good luck in all your adventures and generations of my family to come thank you as well.

I would like to just say Thanks, I have just finished listening to Alcohol lied to me for the fourth time and finally get it,(stubborn Yorkshire Man).
I was too scared to stop drinking telling myself that i did not have a problem, even though i have just about lost my family, and i even tried to blame them, saying things like “its your fault that i drink or you guys are the reason i drink”.
I’m also used the excuses that finances were the reason, it did not matter that i was drinking the money away, it was my right, i am stressed and in my world i deserve a drink.
Even when my doctor and councilors told me, i choose not to listen, but if you continue to lie to them about how much you drink, even when i developed Diabetes, i still lied to myself and everybody around me.
It has only been a week since i had my last drink, but the reasons for not drinking seem a lot more reel and true than the reason for drinking, i feel great and have set my self some realistic goals, which for the first time in ten years seem and feel achievable, and are not like i am depriving myself of the Booze.
Kind Regards Richard.
Just listened to your book “Alcohol Lied To Me”. Great listen. Yesterday was my 8th month birthday for not drinking. I am thankful for that. I relate to every thought that went through your head when you were a drinker.
Alcohol was making me very sad. Since I quit, I have taken advantage of many avenues to get me to this place. Detox center, in-Patient, AA, a great recovery center for out-patient. It’s all good. BUT, the battle in my head never shut off. Not something that I wanted to live with.
I have better things to think of in my new found sober life and realize I hadn’t gone through the process of hating it. I have gotten rid of other addictions by hating them.
Why did I forget on this one. Well, no worries, your book has reminded me. So thank you. I will use this book over and over to get me to a chatter- free head.
Congrats on your accomplishments and new life! Cheers to life!

I purchased an audio version of your book: Stop Drinking Expert and just wanted to say it has released me from my cravings.
Since first listening to the book at the beginning of September I have cut out drinking alcohol on a regular basis.
Amazingly, my husband and my brother (who is currently staying with us) have also significantly reduced their intake. So, not only has your book helped me, its circle of influence has gone much further than I’d ever have imagined.
Dear Mr. Beck
I was so excited to find your stop drinking website & book. There does not seem to be anything quite like it, so of course I enthusiastically purchased. I have to say I was blown away by the unique frankness.
It REALLY hits home in a very good way. It’s as if a very caring, non judgemental friend can see right through me in a way that can only be known by someone who’s been through it all.
I have listened all the way through several times and plan to give the entire 21 days.
I am still extremely grateful to have found your book and your logical genius.
