Publisher's Summary

Millions of people worry that drinking is affecting their health, yet are unwilling to seek change because of the misery and stigma associated with alcoholism and recovery. They fear drinking less will be boring, difficult and involve deprivation, and significant lifestyle changes.

This Naked Mind offers a new solution. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, it will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture. Annie Grace brilliantly weaves psychological, neurological, cultural, social and industry factors with her extraordinarily candid journey resulting in a must-listen for anyone who drinks.

This audiobook, without scare tactics, pain or rules, gives you freedom from alcohol. By addressing causes rather than symptoms it is a permanent solution rather than lifetime struggle. It removes the psychological dependence allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). Annie's clarity, humour and unique ability to blend original research with riveting storytelling ensures you will thoroughly enjoy the process.

In a world defined by 'never enough', Annie takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of alcohol and specifically the connection between alcohol and pleasure. She dispels the cultural myth that alcohol is a vital part of life and demonstrates how regaining control over alcohol is not only essential to personal happiness and fulfilment but also to ending the heartache experienced by millions as a result of second-hand drinking.

Finally, with perfect clarity, this book opens the door to the life you have been waiting for.

Delivers as promised

Annie has really helped to change my perception of alcohol. Annie is the reader which really helps to deliver the message as she is so passionate. I feel like I know her personally.

A must have for anyone considering quitting booze!

Gotta say I loved this book! Although I have been alcohol-free for over a year I am now driven to learn as much as I can about the topic and this book didn't disappoint. Annie's writing style really clicked with me from the first page. She is honest and raw at times which is truly wonderful yet delivers the knowledge required in spades! I cannot recommend this book more highly for anyone considering the idea of a life without alcohol. Well done Annie! BTW. It is a much, much better life without it. Who would have thought? :-)

Great help to lose your obsession with alcohol

This book is best listened to by those at a crisis point with the poison we socially accept as digestible...alcohol. Annie has a kind voice and you can relate to pretty much everything she talks about. If you're in this or bust, you may even not want to drink ever again. Love and best wishes to your new life, from Australia.

Highly reccomended for anyone who feels they have had enough alcohol and suspects there is another way. Annie is passionate, informed and reads her work so clearly and convincingly.
She also has a beautiful voice.
This is an intelligent work.

Changed me, didn't even know I needed to change.

I downloaded this, my first audible book, because it appeared on a feed on amazon, after I had drank to much yet again on a Friday night, I was bored of this and wanted to give me some tools to make better choices, well, I got better than that.
This book made so much sense I stopped drinking, the book made me questioned why I took this drug, so I stopped. It's like someone told me a something that I didn't know that made so much sense, and now I know I see it from a completely different angle, so why would I do that to me and take this drug that does nothing for me.
POWERFUL STUFF if you are the weekend drinking type, and bored of loosing the next day from tiredness, like me, hopefully this will help.

Wow just wow

Felt like drinking was becoming a problem, friend recommended this book, cannot believe the impact it’s had, I’m now 9 days sober with no intention of drinking and this is coming from someone who drunk everyday.

Very powerful a must read if you believe alcohol is becoming a problem.

100% recommended a must read!

Changed my life!

This book has literally changed my thoughts and perspectives, it was the knowledge power I had been looking for to follow through with being completely sober. It also helped me realise that had a dependency in the first place as I was not really sure. One thing for sure from reading this, I have the confidence in my self to change and that mental process has already began and I feel 100% happier! Must read if you think you ought to be taking care of yourself better.

Great book

Not sure why but this book really does seem to work. Having it on audio is brilliant as I can listen on my commute. The book somehow breaks down the myths and romance of alcohol and really shows you what alcohol really is. For anyone looking to improve their health this is a great read. Recommend.

Very powerful book

This book is well worth listening to, it’s the third book now I’ve read/listened to about sobriety and real life experiences of cutting out alcohol. I’m 78 days into a 100 day alcohol free challenge and this book came at the right time for me. I was wondering how I would feel once my 100 days was over and whether I would be tempted back to drinking again. I didn’t drink excessively most of the time at all, and could sometimes have a few and that would be it. But there were times when the wine witch got hold of me and it was hard to stop. Giving up has made me realize how much time I spent thinking about drinking even if I wasn’t actually drinking! Madness. I am enjoying my new found freedom so much that as soon as my 100 days are over I am just simply going to start another 100 day challenge. This is easier for me to deal with as I don’t want to say never say never but I now know that alcohol does not have the hold on me it did. This book has really helped me to see the whole situation for what it really is.
