About this title

Synopsis:

Cut back or quit drinking entirely...fast!


Are you worried you're drinking too much? Has alcohol become a major part of your life? Do you fear it's affecting your health? Your relationships? Your career?

Millions of people are dependent on alcohol to self-medicate trauma, stress, depression, or succumbing to peer pressure to drink more than they want. They'd love to cut-back but fear losing the buzz they associate with alcohol, and mistakenly believe that a sober life will doom them to a life of loss, boredom, pain, and misery.

Cassandra Gaisford, a health counselor, holistic psychologist and the #1 bestselling author of Stress Less, Mid-Life Career Rescue and Find Your Passion and Purpose, (BCA, Dip Psych) provides a fresh sobriety solution.

Anyone who needs to be kept on track or inspired to kick the drink habit and commit to living sober will find genuine help in this refreshingly insightful and solution-focused book.

Integrating ground-breaking research, neuroscience, cognitive therapy, proven tools, and teachings, in this deeply personal book, Cassandra talks candidly about her own challenges with controlling alcohol. Drawing on Eastern and Western approaches to help people suffering from alcohol dependence and addiction, Cassandra shows us how to cut back or quit drinking entirely without becoming a hermit, being ostracized, or cutting back on an enjoyable social life.

Not everyone wants or needs to join a support group to deal with their drinking problems. Many of these easy to implement strategies can be mastered in the privacy of your own home, office party or hip location.

"For readers who sincerely want to stop or rescue their drinking, but struggle to quit the drink habit, this book will pave the way."

Mind Your Drink is a pro-choice book—a call to enlightenment, knowledge, and empowerment. It will open your eyes and enhance your knowledge of the powerful cultural, social and economic forces that promote alcohol dependence in all of us and re-right the imbalance.

Supported by Cassandra's own extraordinary and candid personal experiences, and those of others who have successfully controlled their drinking, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks.

If you want to control your drinking and live a life on your own terms, this book is for you.

If you're a heavy drinker or love someone who is, you'll gain support and encouragement to continue the journey to health and happiness.

If you suffer from stress, fear, doubt, or overly trying to fit in with others, Mind Your Drink will come to your rescue.

If you'd love to inspire others and lead the way by controlling alcohol, either by cutting back or giving up completely, read on

If you're worried about the stigma of alcoholism and recovery or fear you won't be able to kick the habit, stop holding back and read this book.

In this book you'll learn:

  • Strategies to take control of your drinking—with or without the help of AA
  • Awareness of the real harm excessive alcohol consumption takes on your mind, body and soul
  • Sophisticated alternatives to drink
  • How to handle pressure from others who feel threatened by your sobriety
  • Savvy ways to beat slick and subliminal marketing from companies who profit from your addiction
  • How to handle life 'raw' - tools, tips and strategies to deal with stress and daily hassles
  • Ways to discover freedom, find happiness and change your life

Whatever your pain, whatever your motivation, Mind Your Drink will help you achieve your goals-whether that's getting sober or just cutting back-and create positive, permanent transformational change in your life.

Take control of your drinking, relieve stress and still have fun, enjoy happier hours, improve your relationships, boost your energy and live a joy-filled li

Review:

"I work with people and their whanau/families on a daily basis who have, have had or have recovered from Alcohol and Other Drug issues. The damage caused by AOD over use and abuse is enormous and has ongoing negative effects on our society and future generations mainly due to observation and learned behaviours.

I really like the approach that this book takes in not attempting to stop drinking totally. It instead explains and coaches how to manage and cope with consuming alcohol so that the damaging effects may be minimised. This is a very useful supportive book for 'drinkers' and their families.

It is a book that is very easy to read and understand. I really like the quotes, sayings and tools contained therein. This book is much bigger than just the social and familial issues with alcohol - It is in a very big way about 'Your Beautiful Mind'.

It fits very well with my style of practice and that is to start with the basics and move onwards and upwards from there. I see in the book an AHA (awakening, honesty, action) moment in the book. I really get the reference to wisdom (The smart person knows what to say, the wise person knows when to say it) and the associated learning.

I will be recommending this 'must read' book to my clients and their whanau/families and anybody else who will listen."

Philipe Eyton, Counsellor, Life and Leadership Coach, BSocP, NZAC

"I like the content of the book a lot. As an ex-drunk who quit for both mental and physical health reasons, it's very affirming. I like her comment that she's yet to meet an ex-drinker who preferred life as a drinker.

I think it will appeal to both people who are considering change and people who have made a change to their drinking and want both affirmation and some information so they can explain why to their friends.

I like its meandering style (it makes me think of sharing in a group). It's too good a message to ignore."

Andrew Nicholls

"What an incredibly informative read. I really love how Cassandra has different viewpoints that allow the reader to come to their own conclusions.

Mind Your Drink is a non-biased informative read based on various facts, research and readings and I feel it is a book that I could pick up time and time again, and that whatever is relevant to me at that time or moment in my life is what I'll be able to take away when I pick it up.

I loved that information was backed up by science and offered rhetorical questions and facts to get the reader thinking, rather than preaching or telling the reader how to do something.

I loved the perception that it is more helpful to heal the root of our cause to drink, rather than try to blindly control alcohol consumption, and that each reader will feel empowered to choose their own method for sobriety rather than feeling like they have to stick to rules. (Who likes rules anyway!?).

Very empowering, honest and thought-provoking."

Libby Wallace, Founder Soberly

"I cold-turkey stopped imbibing alcohol and I've gained twenty years in energy. We all know we don't drink a lot but what an insidious thing nightly alcohol is."
