New Harbinger Publications, Jan 1, 2002 - Self-Help - 212 pages
This book offers a real alternative to the 32 million Americans who are problem drinkers. Based on extensive scientific literature supporting moderation as a resolution for drinking problems, Responsible Drinkingis the only book with research based techniques that will help nonalcoholic readers overcome their drinking problems. This revolutionary workbook by the leading voices of the Moderation Management treatment approach starts by providing readers with definitive tools to help them discover whether they are a Problem Drinker, or an alcoholic. Readers whose problems are less severe than alcohol dependence are then helped to make an informed decision about whether to pursue moderation or to turn to abstinence. For readers who identify themselves as problem drinkers, the workbook goes on to help them then learn to moderate their drinking and develop a healthier lifestyle. By adopting goals specific to their needs, readers make a commitment, examine the negative effects of alcohol use, identify their own triggers, and learn to take control of their behavior. Inspirational words of more than fifty individuals who have faced and overcome the same problems offer guidance and support. Resources are also provided to help any reader who chooses to pursue abstinence as an objective at any stage of the program.
