This is a book for anyone who`s worried about needing a third glass of wine to fall asleep, anyone who loves TGIF celebrations but hates missing his or her child`s Saturday-morning ball game, and anyone who knows he or she won`t lose weight unless martinis are given up along with the fettuccine Alfredo. Studies indicate that 10% of Americans–nearly 30 million of us–drink more than we should. Based on 30 years of research, William Miller and Ricardo Muñoz argue that for many people abstinence isn`t the only healthy alternative. Controlling Your Drinking shows readers how to become moderate drinkers by making small changes in everyday behavior. After reviewing the research supporting their treatment approach, Miller and Muñoz outline a simple, pragmatic, and adaptable plan for achieving the results you want. Balancing a compassionate, hopeful tone with dry wit, Controlling Your Drinking is an easy-to-follow, science-based approach to moderation that avoids labels and moralizing.
