Do you feel trapped by alcohol?
Do you find yourself thinking about drinking too often?
Do you put alcohol ahead of the most important things in your life?

If so – here’s some good news. You can quit drinking, and it’s not as difficult as you think.

Simon Chapple is a Certified Alcohol Coach who has helped thousands of people change the way that alcohol features in their lives. In How to Quit Drinking in 50 Days he’ll give you a structured way to find complete freedom from alcohol – for now, or forever.

This 50-day journey to freedom is split into two parts. Days 1-25 will ask you to take an honest look at the impact alcohol has had on your life, to examine the reasons for your drinking, and will arm you with the best strategy for quitting alcohol successfully. Days 26-50 will ask you to make the commitment to taking a break from alcohol – taking each step with one chapter a day, and answering the questions that come up.

There are strategies for dealing with challenges and setbacks, and a wealth of resources for finding support and inspiration. Above all, there is a genuine passion for the sober adventure, and the huge rewards of an alcohol-free life – a life of freedom that’s waiting for you.

Simon's passion for an alcohol-free life is contagious; a gift to a world that is drowning in messages that promise that alcohol is what they need to hold everything together when really it is the very thing that may be tearing their lives apart. How to Quit Alcohol in 50 Days is part inspirational manifesto and part practical tips and tools - an effective and useful guide for anyone who is curious about the benefits of an alcohol-free life.
Annie Grace, author of 'This Naked Mind'
The old way of quitting drinking was to grit your teeth and just do it. It's hard work and many people fail. Think of being lost in a strange and unpleasant land, a land that you don't like, but you're afraid to leave. What you really need is a guide, someone who has been exactly where you are now, someone who can take you by the hand and lead you somewhere far, far better. This is where Simon truly comes into his own. You've found your guide; all you need to do now is hold tight and enjoy the ride!
