Based on the revolutionary Drink/Link Moderate Drinking Program, this book teaches drinkers to modify their drinking habits, reduce alcohol consumption and prevent alcoholism on their own at home - no meetings, belief in a higher power or profess- ional help are required!

Beating alcohol craving, pacing your drinking, mastering the art of social drinking and learning from drinking "mistakes" are all covered. 7 Weeks to Safe Social Drinking is a breakthrough for drinkers, alcohol abuse and healthcare professionals and an attractive early treatment program to prevent alcohol abuse.

1.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all.. 9 Dec 2012
The title of this book is the very reason why you shouldnt' buy it. If you have to read a book to control your drinking you probably already have a drink problem and need to get some help. CONTROLLED DRINKING IS A MYTH..

5.0 out of 5 stars Problem Drinker or Alcoholic? It Doesn't Matter! 3 July 2006
By Plato - Published on Amazon.com
I don't know if I was a problem drinker or alcoholic. I don't care - I'm not into labels. But I do know I wanted to drink less and become less dependent on alcohol. And 7 Weeks helped me. One message in the book is you've got to take responsibility for your drinking instead of chalking it up to genes or a bad childhood or whatever. Another message is you can change if you want to. And Cornett gives concrete tips to cut down.

Who care if you're a "problem drinker" or "alcoholic"? If you want to drink less and have a healthier relationship with alcohol, 7 Weeks is for you. I'd pay twice the price for this book if I had to do it all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Winner for Anyone Questioning Their Drinking 29 Nov 2005
By Drink/Link Fan - Published on Amazon.com
This book has been a lifesaver for me. For years I enjoyed social drinking without problems, but the last couple of years I've questioned if I was drinking too much. This program showed me how to pace my drinking, how to make a drinking plan in advance before I started drinking(which really worked)and how to stick to my limit fairly easily. It also made alcohol less important to me - a huge step in the right direction to get back on the healthy social drinking path again. I recommend this book to anyone questioning their drinking. It's a straightforward approach to drink less and drink appropriately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! 11 Aug 2005
By Former Problem Drinker - Published on Amazon.com
I wish I had discovered this book 10 years ago. It spelled out how to achieve moderate drinking. It was easy to follow and best of all it worked for me! There are only a few books out that cover the subject of changing drinking behavior. One is filled with stats, boring and hard for me to stay interested in. Another one was too general - no specifics to help me manage drinking. 7 Weeks held my interest and gave specific tips to keep alcohol consumption down and to beat problem drinking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for alcoholics... 10 Mar 2012
By Mary1976 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read that book and thought it was certainly helpful and could be useful for problem drinkers. However, if you are an alcoholic, this book could give you false hope that you can beat the disease. Some people just can't drink. While the techniques in the book are certainly efficient, I did not like the overly positive tone and the way they are presented, like they are some kind of magic potion against problem drinking. Just be really careful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book To Improve Drinking Habits! 31 July 2007
By sensible drinker - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best book I've read about moderate drinking and how to get there.

Most of the time I don't have a problem with alcohol but sometimes it takes
over and I drink too much. I have found the suggestions in this book invaluable,
especially pre-planning my drinking behavior with the tips in the program,
eating while I'm drinking and watching the clock to slow down my drinking.
That's just for starters. Cornett gives lots of tips and also works on your
attitude about alcohol and its importance in your life.

I think this book could change the world and have given it to friends who
drink too much.
