About the Book

The basis of this book is how I overcame my drinking problem. I was trapped in a cycle of restricted drinking followed by uncontrolled binges. I believe this is a common pattern. Conventional approaches of abstinence and harm-minimisation actually exacerbate the problem. I devised a routine of cycles between drinking a lot, then drinking less each cycle. Each cycle I drink a bit less. An advantage of cycles is the drinker can compare the difference between drinking different amounts of alcohol. There are pluses and minuses for each amount but drinking less enables more to be done in other areas. Once a drinker can control his drinking he can decide what is best for him. I have included my thoughts about life in general which I hope are of interest to the reader.
