Full of practicle suggestions on ways of avoiding that alcholic drink when you feel you need one. Explains some thoughts on what alcoholism is in simple language. Avoid getting hungry angry lonely or tired. Learn to be good to yourself. Seeking professional help where needed. This book goes where ever I go. I've learned alot about the way I think and feel but the book focuses on very practicle issues. Wonderful and essential. This book talks about life without booze but is not intended to be a plan for the recovery of alcoholism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life saver! 30 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Some vital practical tips, from those who have been there, to getting through the first few days, weeks and months of recovery.
The book itself is very simple and to the point: the authors' experience of how, in their daily lives, they go about the business of not picking up a drink one day at time.
The steps and the AA programme are not (by and large) dealt with in this book, which is very much aimed at the newcomer to recovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars And now for something practical 31 Jan 2003
In contrast to The Big Book, this one tells you how other AAs manage not to take that first drink. Without underestimating the importance of spiritual progress, I first read this book to help me get through the first weeks, and then Alcoholics Anonymous to get the whole picture. It worked for me. This is a must for a recovering drunk, possibly accompanied by *My mind is out to get me*

4.0 out of 5 stars Great practical tips 6 July 2008
This book helped me enormously in the first few weeks of recovery. It was written quite a long time ago and some of the advice (like eating plenty of sweets!) seems a bit off-beam now. But it's full of no-nonsense practical suggestions for dealing with cravings and avoiding risky situations. I found that most of the suggestions really work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness, No God 20 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As the ONLY official AA book that doesn't mention god, this is the only one that really complies with the AA claim to be non-religious. Therefore it is doubly excellent for atheists and agnostics who want to give up drink and it has helped unknown thousands of newcomers through the early withdrawal stage.
What a pity there is no other official AA book for atheists and agnostics put off by the god stuff to cover the later stages - going through the steps. Luckily there are excellent complements in this respect like An Atheists Unofficial Guide to AA - for Newcomers: 2 by Vince Hawkins.
