I thought I posted here but maybe not.
I got some good stuff from Carrs book but I read it after I got sober.
He had a prose style I felt was really trying to hard to sell me something but I warmed to it by the end of the book.
Jason Vale's Kick The Drink Easily! covers much of the same territory but less of the hard sell.
A ot of things in both didn't really apply to my experience as an alcoholic - but I think maybe the 'problem drinker' is the intended audience anyway.
In any case, the really big take away I got from both is that alcohol doesn't really do what we want it to do anyway - so why bother?
Try and find healthier ways to get to where we want to be - less bored, less stressed, more relaxed, more confident, whatever.
