Reviews - What do our customers think?
Another approach  Jan 10, 2007
I found this book very helpful for someone looking for another approach to giving up alcohol other than AA.
Alcohol: How to Give It Up and Be Glad You Did  Nov 2, 2006
This book is based on Albert Ellis' Rational Emotive Therapy. It's a bit over simplified, but alcoholics typically need that perspective. It is a useful book at the level of attempting to re-frame addictive thinking so that detox is possible.
Reads like a lesson in psychology, not that helpful in my opinion.  Sep 26, 2005
This book focuses way too much on disputing irrational self-defeating thoughts such as putting yourself down for not being able to stop drinking. The books answers your self-defeating thinking with such retorts as "prove it" over and over again. This book is also very ambiguous with confusing statements like this one all throughout the book.

" If you only believe you don't want to be deprived of alcohol, would you then believe that life without it is awful? Usually not. If you believe, however, that you must not be deprived, you can easily think that abstinence is awful. If you only don't want discomfort, would you then believe that you can't stand it? Probably not. You may, however, think that you can't stand it when you believe that you must not have discomfort."

huh......?????? what?????

That's how this whole book is written. Also, there's too much emphasis put on how great a feeling alcohol is. That's dangerous thinking for someone looking to get away from it. For someone who has been drinking for many years, the feeling is not that great anymore. This book put ideas in my head that really weren't there before. It focuses way too much on assuming you put yourself down constantly for not being able to quit drinking. I never really thought like that. There are better books out there. This one just didn't work for me.
Great Book!  Sep 24, 2003
Very enlightening for people stating, "I don't really want to quit, I've tried to quit and I can't, or I don't really think I have a problem."

Dr. Tate explains how to include rational thinking techniques (REBT) to affect your behaviors. Rather than just trying to solely change your behaviors (drinking), which almost always fails, you must first change your thinking (irrational beliefs). Once understood, the relationship between your thinking, emotions, and behaviors will not only help you battle addictions, but also every day challenges.

Each time I sit down to read the book, I end up reading it cover to cover.

A Practical Alternative to the 12-Step Approach  Nov 20, 2001
Dr. Tate has written a thoughtful, practical guide for overcoming self-defeating addictive behavior. The book is an easy to read, self-help guide, which focuses on the application of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy for quitting alcohol and drugs now and for good. Dr. Tate explains and shows how to take control of your behavior and emotions--without having to attend meetings for the rest of your life. By recognizing and eliminating the irrational beliefs behind addictive behavior, alcohol/drug-free living becomes a natural way of daily life, not a meeting after meeting challenge to try and remain sober, one-day-at-a-time. Alcohol: How To Give It Up and be Glad You Did, is an exceptional book, which answers many of the questions traditional 12-step programs do not. Required reading for professionals and lay-persons in need of alternatives to largely innefective policies of America's Addiction Treatment Industry.
