"Craig Beck was a successful and functioning professional man in spite of a 'two bottles of wine a night' drinking habit. For 20 years, he struggled with problem drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he did not think he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed. All these 'willpower' based attempts to stop drinking failed. Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction & one by one all the lies he had previously believed started to fall apart. For the first time he noticed that he genuinely didn't want to drink anymore. In this book he will lead you though the same amazing process. You can stop drinking today ... No need to declare yourself an alcoholic. No group meetings or expensive rehab. No humiliation, no pain and no 'will power' required. 'Alcohol lied to me' has already helped thousands of people to escape from alcohol addiction. Newly updated, this third edition of the book includes two new chapters."--Back jacket cover.
