Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of This Naked Mind

It's YOUR body... It's YOUR mind... It's YOUR choice...

There are a million reasons why you might drink. It tastes great. You feel more sociable. Sex is better. It helps you relax.

But are you really in control?

Whether you're reading this because you know you drink too much and want to quit, or whether you just want to cut back for a while, this book is for you.

The Alcohol Experiment is a 30-day programme with a difference. Each day, it will show you a new way of thinking about booze, and ask you to look a little closer at why we drink, what we get out of it, and whether it's really the alcohol that's giving us what we want.

In the bestselling This Naked Mind, Annie Grace offered a completely revolutionary solution to dependency, and a path to sobriety. Now, let Annie give you the tools you need to understand alcohol - whether or not it's a problem. Packed with humour, patience and the latest research, try The Alcohol Experiment today, and take control of your drinking for good.

Author Biography

Annie Grace has had a unique life from the very beginning. She grew up in a one-room cabin without running water or electricity in the mountains of Colorado and then, at age 26, became the youngest vice president in a multinational corporation. Success, however, led to excessive drinking and the possibility that she might lose everything. Annie recognized her problem but chose to approach it in an entirely new way. Annie's program has been featured in Forbes, the New York Daily News, and the Chicago Tribune. Annie is successful, happy, and alcohol-free and lives with her husband and three children in the Colorado mountains.

Promotional "Headline"

30 days to take control, cut down or give up for good

Feature

30 days to take control, cut down or give up for good Does for alcohol what Allen Carr did for smoking. Annie's self-published book THIS NAKED MIND was something of a phenomenon - selling 200+ copies per day (she sold over 6,000 copies in August and September alone) and over 80,000 copies since publication. Perfect for those who want to try a month of not drinking (eg. Dry January) or for those who are looking for a way to segway into giving up for a longer period of time Amazon reviews for her previous book are incredible with people full of gratitude and going as far as saying Annie has saved their life. With an email subscription of 45k+ and an average of 300 people joining per day, Annie has created two social communities to support the book. Her second and third biggest readerships are based in the UK and Ireland. Every glass of wine or pint of beer over the daily recommended limit will cut half an hour from the expected lifespan of a 40-year-old. And that recommended upper safe limit is lower than you might expect. A scientific paper suggests five 175ml glasses of wine or five pints a week - about 12.5 units in total. Overdo it, and you are at greater risk of stroke, fatal aneurysm, heart failure and early death. Prof Dame Sally Davies, the government's chief medical officer, has said that just one glass of wine could increase the risk of breast cancer. According to a 2017 ONS study, more than a quarter of 16- to 24-year-olds are teetotal, a four-fold increase on the rest of the population, with just one in 10 seeing drinking as "cool".
