Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home and a successful media career. A director of several companies & at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful & functioning professional man in spite of a ‘2 bottles of wine a night’ drinking habit. For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn't believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.

What did you like most about Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition?

This book set me free from the clutches of alcohol addiction and dependency. I had struggled with alcohol dependency for about 10 years prior. I had previously tried many different methods and medications (antabuse) without any sustained or prolonged success. Since listening in full to this book and religiously doing the meditations/hypnosis, I can report that it has now been 12 months since my last drink of alcohol.

What other book might you compare Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition to, and why?

Not heard anything quite like it.

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A tone of voice and approach to the program that I originally found very aggressive. I almost stopped listening to the program because I thought he was too aggressive. However I am so pleased I kept listening. Craig also brings a bit of humor to the program as he points out how ridiculous this drug really is.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Craig Beck. I paid $15 to set myself FREE from this dangerous drug. No more doctors appointments, no more drugs to assist, just the power of what is the truth about alcohol. I am a typical Australian male who really struggled with the role alcohol played in all parts of my life . Alcohol is so cleverly interwoven into our society whether that be at family functions, sporting events, workplace events, birthdays, weddings, engagements, relaxation, holidays etc etc It is accepted and encouraged. It is so difficult to refuse or escape from. Like many I believed that alcohol somehow enhanced these events but it is actually a complete fallacy as Craig so cleverly points out.. For anyone struggling with alcohol, I cannot recommend this program enough. Listen to it from start to finish, do not be tempted to skip ahead at any point.Brilliant program! Thanks again Craig, you are a superstar!

The ability to stand firmly and strongly in your personal space so that you can say no from a place of inner strength is a skill that many people struggle with. Of course there are many times when we are duty bound to say yes, but if you find yourself frequently feeling resentful, or drained when you cannot say no to someone, then you may well have created the habit of being a people pleaser. What lies at the root of this more often than not is the fear that by saying no we will be rejected and thought of as selfish.

Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.
