The Sober Survival Guide - How to Free Yourself from Alcohol Forever - By Simon Chapple. Foreword by Annie Grace - Author of This Naked Mind - Control Alcohol Are you tired of thinking about drinking? Hands up if you believe any of the following about drinking alcohol to be true: I can’t have fun without alcohol. Imagine going to a party without drinking! it makes me feel less anxious or depressed; it helps me sleep; I can’t relax without it; it makes me entertaining to be around; it fits the lifestyle of my boozy friends; I like the taste of alcohol; it’s cool and sophisticated; I’m not confident enough to talk to new people without it; it helps me deal with all the problems life throws my way; it stops me worrying about how much I’m drinking (ironic, I know). If you find yourself nodding at even one of these statements, then I know how you feel. I was a heavy daily drinker for over twenty years, I too used to believe that I couldn’t live without alcohol, and that once I’d had a few drinks I was funny to be around (hilarious in fact). Are you too are tired and fed up with the routine of drinking, and want to make a change and improve your life? Or you may simply be curious about how an alcohol-free life might look for you. Could it be better? Happier? Calmer? More peaceful? Perhaps you’re already on the path to changing your relationship with booze and might have read other ‘sober books’ or taken part in programmes to help you quit. I want you to know you can do the same as me and find complete freedom from alcohol, and that you don’t have to wait for years like I did. Also, I want to reassure you that alcohol addiction is never a person’s fault, and that there’s no need to blame yourself for finding it hard to give up. It honestly isn’t as difficult as you might think, and this book will provide the support, tactics and advice you need as you progress on your sober journey. The Sober Survival Guide is unique in that it is split into two parts. The first is designed to set you up for success and put you in a place where you can find freedom from alcohol if that’s what you want. The first part of the book contains essential information for when you’re in the early stages of controlling your drinking. The second part serves as a handbook as you move forward into an alcohol-free life and is where this book comes into its own. As you read it you’ll see I’ve used my own experiences and those of the people I’ve worked with to help ensure you’re ready for the challenges, fears, and questions that will come up in the years after quitting drinking. You’ll learn how to handle the work Christmas party without a glass of bubbly in hand, the joys of sober holidays, what to do when you stop drinking but your partner won’t, and a whole lot more. With this part you can dip in and out, picking the chapters that address the problems you’re facing that day or week. This unique quit alcohol book also shares my own stories and personal accounts that helped me learn (sometimes the hard way), so as well as providing vital tools and tactics it will also leave you with a smile on your face and provide you with a fun and enjoyable read. Part memoir, part sober guide and 100% alcohol free - The Sober Survival Guide is perfect for anyone looking to free themselves from the grip of alcohol. Simon Chapple is the founder of Be Sober one of the largest online 'quit drinking' communities, he is also a speaker and works as a Certified Alcohol Coach working with This Naked Mind helping people change their relationship with alcohol. He has helped thousands of people quit drinking and has made it his life mission to spread the word about the benefits an alcohol-free life brings.

Are you thinking about getting sober, but you aren't sure where to start? If this sounds like you, then keep reading! Alcoholism is a horrible disease. It affects many people all over the world. Leaving them feeling hopeless and helpless. The good news is, you are here now reading this. This book is here to help you know what you can do to help yourself and stop depending on alcohol to face the day. 86.3% of people over the age of 18 said they had drunk alcohol at some point. 70% said that they had drunk alcohol in the past year. 55.3% of them said that they had drunk in the past month. Of the same age group, 26.45% of people reported that they had engaged in binge drinking in the last month, and 6.6% said that they had engaged in heavy alcohol use in the last month. Of adults that are 18 and over, 14.4 million adults had an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). Adolescents from ages 12 to 17, 401,000 of them had AUD. Around 88,000 people die each year from alcohol-related causes. This makes alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death. Tobacco is the first, and diet and inactivity are second. We are going to look at how a person can overcome their addiction to alcohol in a safe and manageable way. We'll go through the basics of figuring out if you're an alcoholic and how to accept it before looking at the changes you will face with sobriety. Throughout this book you will learn: The processes of your body that alcohol affects, and how to understand it. Common symptoms of people going through withdrawal. How to face socializing sober and stop relying on alcohol. The best options for getting help and how you can get started. What journaling can do to help you through this journey. AND SO MUCH MORE! Alcohol plays a big part in our lives in one way or another. Most people will try alcohol at some point, and many of them will enjoy several drinks during their life, and nothing comes of it. For some, however, alcohol can end up destroying their life. Chances are, if you are reading this, you may feel as if your drinking is harming your life, or you think that somebody in your life could use the help. It doesn't matter if this is your first attempt or your hundredth, what matters is you're here. If You're ready to take control, you will. Giving up alcohol is the easy part - learning to live after will be the real challenge - the first date, the first holiday, or sleepless nights. It'll all be discussed and covered. And if you still feel like you need some more guidance, we've got you covered there too. Don't wait any longer. If you want to make this change in your life, then do it.

A Blackened Chicken Soup for the Artistic Soul Passion, humiliation, and depravity are the cornerstones of the artistic spirit. How else to rationalize one's deliberate choice to face a life of unsigned rejection letters, calls from worried parents and collection agencies, and cups and cups of ramen noodles? Being a noble artiste is a rough gig. It's one part denial, one part masochism. And it gets all the respect of being a fry cook, without the convenient minimum wage. Only a fool would agree to such soul crushing -- until now. The Starving Artist's Survival Guide boldly reassures both the dreamer and the doer that you are not alone. Regardless of whether you are a painter, a poet, a musician, a writer, an actor, or simply paralyzed by an English lit or fine arts degree, help has arrived. Topics include the pros and cons of various artistic day jobs ("People love clowns, except for the 80 percent who want to beat them up and the 20 percent who do"), coping with form-letter rejections through the healing power of haikus ("You, blinking red light, / A call back from my agent? / No, just goddamn Mom"), a survey of artists' dwellings (from the romanticized loft to Mama's rent-free attic), and most important, "Holding On: Ten Good Reasons to Keep Your Head out of the Oven." Both celebrating and satirizing the pretentious poor, The Starving Artist's Survival Guide recognizes that the best way to cope with self-inflicted poverty is with unbarred humor, not macramé and coupon clipping.
