For those who have gone before me: Do you have a book, film, YouTube video or other to recommend for me to read or view about Alcohol Addiction or Recovery?
I am adding to my blog page “Library” as I find nuggets of information.
What would you suggest I add? What made an impact on you?
Drinking: A Love Story by Caroline Knapp
Night of The Gunn by David Carr
Thank you 😊 Will add them to the list. The list of not yet read is getting longer.
The Easy Way to Quit Drinking by Allen Carr
The Naked Mind by Annie Grace
Mrs. D is Going Without by Lotta Dann
Dry by Augustin Burroughs
Podcasts by Belle at Tiredofthinkingaboutdrinking. She has a book too.
I haven’t read yet but intend to:

Thank you. 😊 Haven’t thought about podcasts. Will add them to my library.
Almost a year in, I am still forever picking up new books! Here are some of the books I’ve read that all have inspired lightbulb moments for me:
This Naked Mind – Annie Grace (if you only read one – make this one it!!!!)
The Easy Way to Stop Drinking – Allan Carr (and this the second if you read two!!)
Alcohol Explained – William Porter (third….)
Alcohol Lied to Me – Craig Beck (fourth…. you get the gist!)
Alcohol: A Love Story – Caroline Knapp
Dry – Augusten Burroughs
Mrs D – you already have this!
Recovery – Russell Brand
The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober – Catherine Gray
The first three will (hopefully!) change your thinking around alcohol forever! There are many more but I have placed at the top of this list the ones that really reinforced how I felt and really emphasised how alcohol has no place in my life. I swear, the idea of drinking now isn’t tempting in the slightest!
Than you. 😊 Allen Carr’s book was amazing! I do remember that I already read Catherine Gray’s book but that was when I was only half hearted about being sober. Don’t remember it at all. Will read it again with new eyes.
