Review:
Completely non-judgemental and easy to read, this 40-page booklet is ideal for anyone who fears that their drinking is starting to get out of control. Written by an experienced practitioner, it is aimed at helping people to drink in a sensible way rather than eliminating alcohol from their lives. Using Cognitive Behavioural techniques it firstly helps readers to gain an understanding of their drinking patterns and get motivated to change their habits. Readers are taught how to challenge thoughts associated with drinking, deal with cravings, manage setbacks and regain control over drinking.
