Publisher's Summary

Allen Carr's Easyway is the most effective stop-smoking method of all time and it has now been successfully applied to a wide range of other issues. Here the method focuses on one of the fastest-growing problems of modern times for women: drinking.

Alcohol blights women's lives often in a distinctly different way to men's: women tend to stay at home drinking alcohol; women often feel particular shame over drinking too much; drinking around children can be a particular burden. In summary there are a lot of added pressures on women to stop drinking, and often they feel this is an impossible task.

Luckily, Allen Carr's Easyway makes it easy to stop drinking. It's the tried-and-tested cessation method that really works. With startling insight into why women drink and clear, simple, step-by-step instructions, Allen Carr shows you the way to escape from the alcohol trap in the time it takes to listen to this audiobook.

Makes a compelling argument to stop drinking

I think this is a very sensible book. Everyone should read it. It made me realize how much I don't enjoy drinking. Looking forward to feeling and looking my best!

This book delivered for me

I always knew AA wouldn't work for me. So, when I knew I was in serious trouble with alcohol, l did some research and became convinced AA was a bad bet for anyone. I stumbled into Allen Carr rather by accident in Stephen Guise's Mini Habits. I got the ebook, then when nearing the final steps got the audible book as well. I doubled back twice to re-read before entering the last steps, then finished with the audio. Following my ritual last drink, l immediately had no more desire for alcohol. Until then I was afraid of failing to quit, but no more.

Not a fan

This book claims to tell you the easy way to quit drinking.....classic too easy to be true situation. I listened for hours patiently waiting for the 'steps' and 'methods' they promised would change my life. There aren't any. Just think of alcohol as poison they say. And remember that people are attracted to shyness, and you don't need to be the life of the party, so voila! Just quit drinking! Waste of time. Learned nothing.

Disjointed and Repetitive

This book has proved helpful for many, but I have difficulty understanding how. Annie Grace’s book The Naked Mind is based on some of Allen Carr’s work and is much better written and more accessible.

It helps. Seriously!

This book completely changed the way I view sobriety. I’m not sad or irritated, My cravings get smaller by the week, and I’m prepared to live sober.

Just listen and absorb....

It really works... Haven't had a drink in 32 days... don't want one... can think about alcohol without wanting a drink. I can be around alcohol and not want to drink. The desire is gone. I just want to be me in a clear head and a healthy body. Not sure why nothing else seemed to work, but listening to this book made me see things differently. The only thing I can say is just listen and absorb what you hear. Stop the insanity of drinking for no reason-- things don't get better when you do drink, do they? If they do, do what you must... but if they don't, it's time to make a change.

This really resonates with me. I highly recommend it. I think listening to it, as well as the written version is a good way to go. That way I can highlight, mark, and go back to easily for reference.

Somewhat condescending motivational speech

It’s great whenever someone try’s to help you better yourself do I have it two stars for that. But.. this doesn’t have useful tools. It’s basically using stereotypical ideas of what women think to motivate you to stop drinking. Like you’ll look a lot better, age less, feel better etc. all true but come on.. we know all that. Clearly an outdated male perspective of how women think. Then they have a female read it, so we will identify with her. But it’s a male author, and that’s very obvious. If you want some motivation it’s fine. But don’t expect an easy breakthrough. It’s a little condescending if you’re an intelligent female.

I am now a non drinker. After 15 years.

I previously listened to Easy Way the original and quit for around 4 months after being a 4-5 days a week drinker for 15 years. But some 'friend talked my into having a glass of wine at her house and I caved. Back to old habbits, lost friends, money etc etc over the past year so bought the womens version determined to stop again. 1 week in and I'm not fussed about drinking at all. Not been out yet as Im going to listen a few more times to reall get it into my head. Brilliant life changing book. Must read more than once though or you may forget and slip as I did the first time around.

Everything has changed!

I downloaded the audio book and listened to the full 6 hours in one day. The kids were at school and I did the housework with my headphones on, I would never have had the time to read the book. I'm not sure how the process has worked but it has and I couldn't be happier! I've gone from using willpower to stop drinking in the past to now having no desire for it at all, incredible! It is very very repetitive and at some points I nearly turned off but I'm so glad I followed through and persevered to the end. If you know you want to stop drinking but need a bit of help to figure out how then this may help you too.

Excellent book

This book completely put alcohol into perspective for me. It took away the self blame and helped me to see that alcohol has been lying to me for years. I now realise how stupid drinking a disinfectant, cleaner, fuel, antiseptic, poison is. Totally liberating.

Amazed!!

I'm into my second week of not drinking, this is nothing new for me as I have spouts of not drinking for days or weeks but always give in to cravings, my last attempt was November 18 ...3 weeks sober then returned to drinking. after a very stressful period in my life and up to my last drink I was drinking 1 70cl bottle of vodka a day and 4 beers starting in the morning to cure the fuzzy head. since starting the book I've not only stopped but I do not crave or want a drink, I've had a weekend away and 1 social event and not a drop, these things were the perfect excuse and a way to hide the amount of drink i drank. I would say its early days but this doesn't feel like any other time I have quit I know with certainty I do not want to drink anymore, its serves no purpose in my life and feel better than I have done in years.

Thank you Allen Carr

Simply amazing

Don't get me wrong, this is not a good read/listen (I've listened to a fiction book told by this narrator before and that really troubled me as it sounded like a story at times), but it is obviously not meant to be. The job is to stop you from drinking and it really works. I was totally skeptical but I now have zero desire to drink now. I waited before I reviewed this to make sure that feeling lasts and it does. Highly recommend.

It works.

Not had a drink for 3 weeks, don't really miss it. And don't intend to drink again! It's like this audio re-programmes your mind.

Cannot rate highly enough. Listen twice to re-affirm some of the information. You won't regret it.

If you have a drink problem you need to read this

I have struggled with alcohol for the last 10 years and this book has helped me to understand why. I am so grateful for this book showing me how to stop drinking with ease. If you drink more than you want to, read this book but you must keep an open mind and accept the truth about alcohol.

great book read by professor umbridge

I loved the content but really struggled to push through as I found the reader sounded quite condescending. I had to really focus on the content and not the delivery. For some reason my brain pictured her as Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter series 🤷🏼‍♀️

Thank you

What did you like about this audiobook?

This book is life changing. All women with a drinking problem should read.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Great understanding of issues faced by women and how to fix them.

Hmmm not sure about it

Yes some of the other reviews were right. Narrators voice does get annoying. Perhaps I would have digested better reading it but I found myself constantly saying, ‘yep, got it, get to the point.’ And by the end of the book I was so disengaged I can’t remember what they said the steps are! Might re listen to chapter 17 and after as that’s were the actual INFO is. I get the rest has to build up the ‘alcohol is bad’ but, yes, not sure it will do anything for me. That said I do feel more in control of the power alcohol has had; although to be fair I’m currently pregnant and never touch it when I am...

feeling healthy, sleeping better.

The 'little monster' is a little annoying but only tiggles for about 1 minute. big breaths and diversion helps. Im not a heavy drinker but was daily for years. I can feel the benefits already. best of luck
