I heard about this book by Allen Carr and I wanted to either buy it or find it at the library, but one of my wonderful SparkFriends, FRENCHSEAMS, sent it to me and I read it, cover to cover, within 24 hours.
I think it hypnotized me. I don't know for sure. I can't explain it, but I've lost all desire for alcohol.
I really feel like I'm cured of the addiction. I know what AA says, "You are always an alcoholic and forever in recovery - just one drink away from being drunk" This author doesn't agree with that.
I feel "FREE" and "STRONG" and "HEALTHY" - not tempted to have a drink at all !
I don't know how it worked because I didn't agree with everything he wrote and some things were quite confusing and seemed to contradict each other but all I know it that it appears to have "worked" - on me at least.
Now my sweetheart is planning to read it. Wouldn't that be something if we BOTH stopped drinking?!
Just think of how much money we would save ! We could take a vacation. But we're on vacation every day of the year, so buying a car would be our goal, I suppose. I haven't had a car in almost 5 years, so that would really be awesome.
So anyway, if you're having a problem with drinking alcohol, you've GOT to read this book. The Easy Way to Stop Drinking by Allen Carr.
Weird - but it works.
