I'd thought about attending AA, but didn't think I was that bad. Searched on Amazon and read the reviews for Allen Carr's work.
I am a Brit and grew up in a pub-culture, rugby matches were followed by binge drinking, nights out became "heavy" sessions. I got into triathlon in a big way in my early 20s and that curbed my drinking a lot. I was obsessive about training and racing, I was doing well both in my career and in competition.
When we had kids, I stopped training so much and I guess I filled the void with a beer or two, or three...I became good at drinking again..
I am in my late forties now, lost my job about 3 years ago, I was drinking too much and had trouble keeping calm under pressure. I had 2 trips to the psych ward for a few days due to severe depression, feeling I had let people down and saw a scary future, school fees, retirement saving etc..
During that time, I lied about my drinking, I believed I could control it and didn't want to give it up as I was worried I would have no life...
In a way, losing my job was a really good thing...I know it's cliche...but, I never really looked in the mirror, I always found a way to blame someone else. I've now read some really good books that helped me piece together some root causes, the 7 Habits, 8th Habit and Speed of Trust by the Covey's really helped. The Mindfull Way through Depression by Mark Williams and co, What Happy People Know, by Dan Baker and Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser all helped me fully "get" what the heck went on and how to deal with things way differently.
However.....things would be great and then, I'd get the urge for a beer or two and the wheels would be off. At parties, I felt less confident and drink like a ship full of pirates.

I don't feel as though I'm missing out on anything....I started with Allen Carr's "Easyway to Stop Smoking," last year and my spouse and I have been smoke-free for over a year without ever looking back. We realized we could still enjoy alcohol without cigarettes, but then we later realized that we were perhaps enjoying too much alcohol so we decided to read Allen Carr's "Easyway to Control Alcohol." Quite frankly we are both so happy we did! We are both biting into life with gusto!
These "easyway" books and the advice contained therein are a blessing to anyone who asks the question, "Could my life be better if...," but felt that they couldn't do it on their own through sheer willpower. Get the book and you will gain a life!
I should also mention we have passed on or recommended these books to many people, who have also found them effective. "Easyway works!!!

Carr works from the premise that although withdrawal symptoms from substance abuse is different depending on the substance breaking the psychological attachment is however the same for all addictions.
The main difference in stopping smoking and stopping drinking according to Carr is that while most people want to stop smoking completely, the same people while admitting alcohol to be a problem in their lives would only like to find a way to control or modify their drinking habit. Carr deals with this difference in desire and after reading both books I can attest that as a committed smoker and drinker for more than thirty years today I am a slave to neither.
Carr changed my brain so completely that I regard my self as a non smoker and a non drinker rather than a ex smoker or ex drinker or as recovering from addiction.
Both alcohol and nicotine had so little meaning to me after reading Carr that I actually cannot remember when I stopped smoking or drinking except to guess at more than five years.
If one truly wants to stop and reads these books as "study manuals" looking for a change in the way one thinks about addiction the change in thinking is dramatic and where Carr advises to smoke until the book is finished I found myself not being able to even force myself to smoke about three quarters of the way through!
