I actually went to The Drink Less Mind seminar and was handed this book and CD as I left, so I guess I started with a super injection of what Georgia Foster teaches. That said, I have been listening to the CD and reading the book since. What I love is that the book, once read properly, is easy to dip back into for support and guidance. The CD is quite a strange experience to start with, but then I've never done something like this before so it would be. Just relax and don't question it. I never 'went under' just listened to the words, alongside the everyday waffle inside my mind (washing, shopping, work, supper). The first week after the seminar I seemed to rebel a bit against what I was hoping the CD would do for me and had a few too many on the weekend. I was a bit disappointed and thought it wasn't working at all. Then suddenly, this odd thing happened... I haven't wanted to have a drink at all. It's not like the idea turns me off, but before I would think about a big glass of wine and it would only be a matter of time before I had got my hands on one (then two, then three). That craving has just vanished, it's such a nice feeling, like a relief. Today (Friday) for the first time in I don't know how long for a Friday night, my plans are gym with my sister and the cinema, instead of 'thank god it's Friday pass me the wine'. I will def want to have wine in my future but it's nice to think that I call the shots from now on (no pun intended) instead of the other way round. Try it, and stick at it and you may well be amazed.
