This groundbreaking book from the UK's leading spokesman on nutrition looks at why millions of people have cravings for substances such as coffee, sugar and alcohol, as well to drugs such as sleeping pills, antidepressants, marijuana and cocaine. It uncovers how the brain becomes addicted and how it can be 'unaddicted' through a combination of diet, supplements and lifestyle factors. The book is written in association with Dr David Miller, who has worked in the addiction field for 25 years and is an expert in relapse prevention. It looks at each of the most common substances that people become addicted to and offers specific advice on how to tackle that particular substance safely and effectively yourself. In-depth yet practical and accessible, HOW TO QUIT WITHOUT FEELING S**T, will allow you to understand why you feel the way you do, whether you have a depndency or have already given up but still feel lousy. The book provides a 12-week action plan for becoming addiction free - without suffering the deeply unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal that most addicts believe they must go through

Review:

Another excellent book from Patrick Holford, this deals with addictions - not just alcohol, drugs and nicotine - but sugar and caffeine too. All have major impacts on health and well-being and are difficult to give up without expert help. Using nutrition and providing the right nutrients and supplements, investigating allergies, stabilising blood sugar levels and addressing the psychological reasons for addiction the Brain Bio Clinic, founded by Holford, helps many people every year. This book is written for anyone who feels it is time to take control of their lives, rather than being run by their addictions and experiencing the mental and physical consequences. It isn't made out to be easy, but a detailed run down of how to approach each addiction gives an insight in how to change. There are plenty of resources, references and places to get help included as well. BOOK OF THE MONTH, HEALTHYSOUL.CO.UK Whether booze, fags, sugar or drugs are your vice, this book has been written to help rid you of your addiction - for good! Including action plans, case studies and diet tips, this easy-to-understand book has the potential to be a life-changing. STAR MAGAZINE If smoking, prescription drugs, caffeine or even sugar are a day-to-day vice affecting your health, this could be your weapon. BRAND NEW YOU Book of the Week: A helpful, holistic and very thorough guide to quitting dependencies from sugar to drugs, via cigarettes, antidepressants and alcohol. YOU MAGAZINE
