About this deal

I've been out for meals with friends or family in the evening and driven home with a smile all over my face. Gross oversimplification, unsubstantiated "facts" (average drinker will spend 18 thousand pounds on taxis in their lifetime as a direct result of drinking? I love wine and champagne and cocktails and socialising, it doesn't affect my work but I need to cut down as I worry about my health long term. You can not love Jason Vales "no bullshit" attitude - he gets right to the point and not without a sense of humour either.

Jason Vale fearlessly confronts every misconception about alcohol and a teetotal lifestyle and offers practical, down-to-earth advice on how to overcome issues such as: `what do I tell my friends and family? Whether or not you agree with this statement, one thing is for certain, you will never see alcoholism in the same light ever again after reading this book. This book is much more than a simple eye opener, it will: change the way you see alcohol forever show you how to stop drinking help you enjoy your life so much more than you do now without having to drink alcohol So open your mind and take a journey with Jason to explore the myths about the most used and accepted drug addiction in the world! To give some perspective, I was drinking five nights out of seven with at least a couple of those nights being a bit more than a bottle of wine (so a bottle and a gin and tonic or a pint of lager or a whiskey at the end of the evening).About the Author: Jason Vale is a well-known health and addiction author who has sold over 5 million books, over 1 million apps and is the man behind the ground-breaking health documentary Super Juice Me! He also used to smoke 2 – 3 packets of cigarettes a day and drank very heavily (as many as 14 pints of lager a day). There are plenty of facts and statistics in this book about drinking and the damage it can do - however as Jason says himself - most drinkers are not idiots and they know why they shouldn't drink. Jason’s major argument is there is no such thing as an ‘alcoholic’ and that we are conditioned to accept alcohol as a ‘normal’ substance in today’s society despite the fact that it is the major cause of many of today’s social problems and a wide range of health issues. The warm, fuzzy happy feeling that comes from having the first one or two is what hooks people in and is a benefit for those feeling insecure, or tired, or down.

I stopped drinking in 2012 (when my children were 4 and 2) because I was fed up with feeling crappy. So for example, I realised that champagne parties before Christmas were an issue as I felt I was missing out on the sophistication. One of the most valuable and contentious elements of `Kick the Drink - Easily' is the complete denial that most people are `normal drinkers. The first week or so was hard work; not so much physical pain or anything like that but thinking about booze A LOT.I read Allen Carr's The Easy Way to Stop Drinking first, and the author of this book appears to have taken what he wrote, and just updated it since Carr is now deceased. To be fair I had less than I normally would and still feel dreadful today so I’m not feeling like drinking again any time soon. Whilst I commend huge portions of the book I think there should be recognition that everyone has their own journey with sobriety and that not everyone follows the same path. Jason used to be a heavy smoker, drinker and junk food addict who also suffered from obesity, asthma, eczema, hay-fever and severe psoriasis.
