    This is a very useful book for anyone whose relationship to alcohol has become bothersome or worrisome.

The solutions delve into such areas as forgiveness (for self and others), core values, learning to ask good questions, visualization, affirmations, gratitude, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique al This is a very useful book for anyone whose relationship to alcohol has become bothersome or worrisome. Authors Dave Andrews and Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul author) have put together a very nicely sequenced program that takes the reader through a different "solution" for each of the 30 days. The solutions delve into such areas as forgiveness (for self and others), core values, learning to ask good questions, visualization, affirmations, gratitude, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique also known as "tapping") -- a smorgasbord of techniques, each one offered with a great deal of heart and intelligence. Not everything will work for everyone, but most everyone is sure to find something that resonates. The book has a companion website with videos, guided meditations, and loads of links to articles, books, and other support materials, including a forum where readers can share their experiences. I read and research for a living and found the materials to be reasonably well chosen and presented. In a word, if you're waking up at 3:00 a.m. with uneasy thoughts about your relationship to alcohol and feel it is time to do something about it, I would highly recommend giving this book a try. It may be especially useful for those who want some assistance but feel that AA would just be too much. This book gives the reader who is suffering with a personal problem the time, space, compassion, privacy, information, and support to tackle it in their own way, at their own pace. The quality of guidance and materials is remarkable for the price. Before I decided to go with the program, I was seriously considering paying a significant sum of money for the services of an independent and highly regarded addiction program here in Minnesota. I am SO glad I decided to simply read this book and do the homework it gives for each day. I saved thousands of dollars and honestly, I believe that the help I received totally equals (and maybe surpasses) any benefits I may have received from therapy. In my case, I had developed a very regular habit of drinking two glasses of wine in the evening. Some nights, the amount would veer towards three glasses. This routine was in place for close to four years, and during that time, I had many moments of wondering if I should cut back or stop entirely. I did not define myself as an alcoholic, but I would feel fairly irritable if I found the cupboard bare in the evening and could not get out to purchase wine. At one point, I was able to quit for a month, but that period of time only seemed to serve as confirmation that I didn't have a problem, after which time I went straight back to drinking nightly. I decided to try the 30-Day Sobriety Solution when I remembered how my drinking was in my 20s, 30s, 40s, and even most of my 50s (I'm 61). Whenever a doctor asked about alcohol consumption, my standard response was "a couple of glasses a MONTH." Clearly, my habits had changed. After reflecting a bit, which the book helps with enormously, I realized that I was drinking for certain clear reasons. First, I was in physical pain most evenings with achy joints, overall fatigue, and a basic depression that accompanied those two symptoms. On winter evenings when it was pitch dark by 5:00 p.m. (I live in Minnesota), red wine mostly always seemed like a very good idea at about 6:30 p.m. I knew summer would be an easier month to tackle the problem, so I started the program in mid-June and just finished today. I have not had any wine or other alcohol for a month and feel pretty great. I am also committed to keeping this up for at least a year. I plan to revisit my decision next June. In one of the late chapters, the authors discuss the importance of maintaining a good diet and mention a book called The Plan by Lyn-Genet Recitas. I checked it out and found a new path to follow in my quest to feel better. After skimming her book (and yet another book related to her book), my theory is that I have been suffering from a general hormonal imbalance, and low thyroid function in particular, which has been the root cause of achy joints, depression, brain fog, sleeplessness, and a host of other unlovely symptoms. I was trying to feel better by drinking wine and taking antidepressants (one cancels the other, and in winter, wine actually increases depression). I offer this as an example of how you might discover root causes of your problem drinking, even if you believe you know them all. I did not KNOW about low thyroid function and just took my symptoms to be the "new normal" in my sixth decade. Not so! FYI, the diet book is just one of many, many resources the authors mention. There is never a sense that they are trying to promote anything or anyone – there is no sign of hidden agenda anywhere, in case that matters. One last comment: If you buy the book, be prepared to spend significant time doing what the authors ask each day. They downplay the amount of time it takes, and maybe you could throw less time at it than I did and still have good results, but recovery as it is set out in this book is definitely not a spectator sport. You will need to do some serious journal writing every day at very least. Good luck! I wish you well on your path to breaking up with alcohol. ☺

    Only for those who dare.... After 9 years of daily drinking, I have been sober for 30 days. The roadmap outlined by Dave & Jack showed me the how IF I put in the work. I did and so can anyone who reads this IF they are serious about quitting their drinking addiction.

I would enthusiastically recommend it even to anyone who is not battling addiction, as everyone stands to gain a lot from this book. I've gone through the 30 day plan and am going to do it again no doubt multiple times, not because I give in to addiction (because I won't) but because I want to solidify the lessons learned.

    The majority of mass-market self-help books are formulaic and/or lack scientific or research-based findings to support the touted advice. Some have slogans or brands so ingrained in our cultural consciousness we don't think twice about their legitimacy.

Some have slogans or brands so ingrained in our cultural consciousness we don't think twice about their legitimacy. I was always a skeptic of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series by Jack Canfield, not because I questioned the material (in all honesty, I've never read a single book in the series) but I doubted the quality of or need for the league of imitators that followed. Dodgy advice from B-list celebrities to self-styled uneducated "life coaches", the Mind/Body/Spirit shelves at the chain bookstores in the '90s groaned with bad information and impossible promises. When I worked in bookstores and in publishing, this genre was the butt of many co-worker jokes, not to mention the sort of customer who showed up at the counter with an armful of books by people like Suzanne Somers or Dr. Phil. In this category, I once placed Jack Canfield, but after reading the 30 Day Sobriety Solution, not anymore. This book offers actionable steps anyone can do. If you are looking for an AA alternative and want to cut back or quit drinking altogether, the authors provide non-preachy yet authoritative advice on how to reach your goals. Andrews is a recovering alcoholic who turned his life around by getting sober. There are many examples of his struggles while drinking, and how much better his life is now that he is living in sobriety. The daily exercises or "solutions" are really about self-reflection, and how to start to see yourself and your addiction in new ways that can lead to real change. Be prepared to start a journal, take time to do the solutions, and most of all, be comfortable with self-examination. Unlike the over-promising of so many self-help books, the authors are realistic that there is no quick cure, and it takes work to deal with your addiction. The authors' honesty about this makes up for the sometimes excessive self-promotion throughout. Overall it's a good mix of tough love and cheerleading; clearly, the authors believe in their approach and their enthusiasm jumps from every page. Testimonials from "graduates" of the program are interspersed throughout, along with quotes from teetotaler celebrities about which, honestly, I couldn't care less. These could have been trimmed down as the effect after one or two is pretty much the same: We get it, this program works.

    This is not my genre - not by a long shot. Or I should say this wasn't my genre. Not until I completed a 30 birthday detox.

    This book has finally given me the tools to combat my demons. There is a lot of information here but each solution gives practical application for uncovering the deep rooted issues for most problem drinkers. It was refreshing to understand why willpower isn’t enough and really get at the heart of the matter. I highly recommend this book for anyone struggling to overcome any kind of addiction, not just alcohol.

    Good & Educational program. Having an action to complete everyday helped to keep me focused. I especially like that they never demand that you stop drinking forever and use terms like "problem drinker" & advise you to create a "healthy relationship with alcohol". Good & Educational program.
