That's my other problem with this book, i Part of a new series about continuums of behaviour, and one I had high hopes for.

Yet, only a small number are true alcoholics--people who have completely lost control over their drinking and who need alcohol to function. The great majority are what Dr. Doyle and Dr. Nowinski call "Almost Alcoholics," a growing number of people whose excessive drinking contributes to a variety of problems in their lives.In Almost Alcoholic, Dr. Doyle and Dr. Nowinski give the facts and guidance needed to address this often unrecognized and devastating condition.

What I expected from this book with popular appeal was heart-jerking anecdotes and hand-waving about how unfair medical diagnosis is. What I got was symptoms of "almost alcohol" that I instantly recognized -- as opposed to symptoms of alcoholism that I had been arguing with my family about for years. This book nails it -- and the conventional doctors miss it. This book is exceptionally helpful for any drinkers, as well as anybody who is concerned about their drinking. It does no good to tell someone they are an alcoholic, when they can go down the standard diagnosis symptoms and HONESTLY say to themselves they don't match them. But they may very well match "almost alcoholic" symptoms.

Well written, doesn't waste words. Also it's nice printed and bound, on nice paper. An all-around pleasant surprise and warmly recommended for ... practically everyone.

So far so good...Only 1/2 way though, but it does make you view things a bit different. I realize that I have a good chance to change it. It doesn't mean you need to quit, but you may if not cut back with some of the ideas and inspiration from the book. Alcohol is a slippery slope that can get to many of us. It's not if, it when...Regardless of your classification...weather it be social, moderate etc... If you drink period you need to read it...Read it. It may save your life, relationship, work and any other issue you may have, because as you may find out they usually are linked to drinking. God Bless and good luck!

This book does a great job of balancing relatable anecdotes with research and resources. The activities encourage self-reflection and I feel completely prepared to embark on (more) sober living. It also speaks broadly of the interconnected relationship of mental disorders and I'm now more aware of how my experiences affect my relationships and thus drove me to drinking to seek relief. I've already recommended this book to people in my life and will continue to do so.

Really makes a person look at their habits

Almost Alcoholic is one in a series of "Almost" books. If you think you have a drinking problem or are looking to understand the nuances of alcohol abuse, this book is certainly helpful. It doesn't paint alcoholism as black and white, and shows the different grey areas that exist for most of us. It offers suggestions and directions, although there are a few too many anecdotal stories.

Good Book

I didn't think I had a problem until I read this book. Now I think I am going to try a few of the ways they say to stop drinking and see how hard it is
.if it's to hard then I will seek professional services.
I really enjoyed the book, and it was in very good condition.
