Many people are aware that they drink too much for their health and well-being but find it very difficult to cut back on alcohol. Drinking to help you feel relaxed in social situations or to unwind after a stressful day are common self-help strategies, but for growing numbers of people drinking excessively on a regular basis leads to very real health, work and relationship problems. In this book, former alcohol counsellor, Marcantonio Spada provides strategies for dealing with excessive drinking based on cognitive behavioral therapy. Clinical studies have shown that CBT significantly reduces heavy drinking patterns and that these gains were maintained after 12 months. CBT can help people develop skills to better manage their behaviour in situations where they drink heavily - for example in social situations, when stressed, or when facing problems and anxieties. CBT also helps people manage cravings for alcohol. This book is essential reading for anyone trying to cut down on their drinking and for their partners and families.
