What disappointed you about Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition?
...don't be tempted to join the Craig Beck online site that is heavily advertised throughout this audiobook. A lot of the content is limited until you have been subscribed for up to 4 months (to preserve bandwidth apparently). So some content could effectively cost almost £100!! When you are allowed to download content it is all very similar, with identical passages 'cut & pasted' throughout. Actual download files will require some reorganising with filenames, id3 tags, etc - all very unprofessional. The forum is practically dead and I'm not convinced they are all from real subscribers. If you succumb to the adverts in this audiobook and actually join, take out a 1 month offer and then cancel before 28 days and take up the $9.99 VIP offer (which is still double the amount I feel it's actually worth!)

Would you consider the audio edition of Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version, yet.
Any additional comments?
I listened to this book on my way to night shift on Monday (2.5 hrs to work and the same return), by the time I got home Tuesday morning I was a non drinker. I have no stress from stopping my daily habit and feel great, I just have to pinch myself to confirm this is real. I did use the Alan Carr book a few years ago and quit for a couple of weeks but this book has worked straight away and I honesty cannot imagine going back to the bad old days of drinking. I have listened to the book daily on my commute which probably helps, most people would not have the time for this, but while I am driving its no problem and Craig tells his story in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.

I would say I am glad I bought this book...as a social drinker who would not classify themselves as an alcoholic. However I can clearly see where drinking has a negative impact on my life and has to go if I want to achieve the goals I actually care about...weight management and other personal goals that require focus and energy.
I thought the author was a bit over the top at times, but his message rang true and there is some good information and common sense stuff you might need to hear, if you are struggling with some issues based around this socially acceptable drug habit.
Has it "cured me" of my desire to drink? Sure...until I go out Sat night. BUT I will listen to it a few times more to help me in truly changing how I look at it, and see it for the poison it really is.
Good luck :)

Would you listen to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition again? Why?
Yes. This book is a fundamental read for those who have an alcohol or any addition and want to become free. Craig mentioned in the book that AA fails because it requires the use of will power to stop drinking. Either Craig has never been to an AA meeting, read the Big Book, or ever talked to an AA member. AA uses a spiritual and denounces will power as a path to find and maintain sobriety. As an AA member who seeks knowledge from many sources, I urge Craig to amend this area of his book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Craig of course.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Learning my ego was the cause of all the detriment in my life.
