Amazing

As with Alcohol Explained, this book is so well written. It teaches you about the workings of alcohol on our brains and bodies and gives the reader a whole new thought process around it. It has a little humour and a lot of fabulous advice that really sticks! Highly recommend and I will be reading it again!

Really useful

I enjoyed this latest addition and will almost surely revisit time and again just like the first Alcohol Explained. Some of it felt a little repetitive but I am ok with that as the messages are worth and need to be down-packed (at least for me). Great resource.

effective for me

a good follow up to the first, but not a lot of new content. reinforcement is a better description

The Title Says It All!

This book was excellent, and offered many common sense strategies to quit alcohol. It explained so much about the way alcohol works and how it hijacks our brain! I will refer this book to many others who desperately need this. TR

Indispensable

The information and insights William Porter bestows are essential for dispelling long held beliefs and myths about the alcohol imperative in our lives. On my journey to eliminating alcohol in my life, I have listened to this book multiple times and I learn something new each time. Having these new insights and heeding his many suggestions for achieving sobriety has proved a critical tool to help me maintain my convictions. Highly recommend for all drinkers- seeking to quit or not.

Excellent material

This is an amazing follow-up to Alcohol Explained. You should listen to the first book before moving on to this one. Both are essential listening if you wish to free yourself of the alcohol trap easily, happily and permanently. William Porter is a very enlightened individual. I look forward to his future works.

super stuff. fine tunes ideas in AE1 and adds more

Same carefully thought through, clearly expressed and bulletproof arguments (there are so many), backed up with irrefutable experiential desriptions and proof (including reference to one scientific paper, although please don't let that put you off) as last time. After all human understanding of the impact poisons have only progresses so fast. However, this provides more granularisation and details about how to overcome practical difficulties in achieving/maintaining sobriety. I am biased because I am in it (as the anonymous dad in chapter 6), having met the author since reading AF1. But I believe it's really is as good as the first if not better. BOTH books do what it says on their covers.

Brilliant book just as good as alcohol explained 1

this book is a must for anyone who wishes to stop drinking . it goes in depth of how alcohol effects our brain and the nature of addiction. it offered lots of tools and advise on dealing with cravings, and how to alter your mindset towards alcohol. it's just as good as Williams other books alcohol explained 1 and diet and fitness explained I've got both on audible and are a brilliant listen

Day 5 of sobriety

Having read both the Alcohol Explained books this is the first time in 30 years I feel I may just be able to do sobriety! So excited I could cry!! Love these books. They explain what alcohol is and does and how my mind processes it’s effects in a practical way that makes sense. Tried other books and blogs even AA but finally I may just be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Only day 5 now but listening to this tolls book over and over to keep me on target. God bless you for taking time out of your life to help others by writing it x

Highly recommended

Definitely worth a listen.This book helped me recognise and question why I am programmed to drink everyday. The "just a wee whiskey" at the end of a work day or a cold cider on a warm summers day after a day working the allotment. Is there something wrong with that? I wouldn't think so, but it never stops there... "just come out for one" never stays at one, we all know this. Not the most interesting thing to listen to - especially with the conditioning we've all had, but we never stop to question, stop to look at the consequences of drinking every single day. Thank you William Porter, writing this book, most definitely a quintessential guide for anyone.
