Nobody chooses to become an alcoholic. This book shows you how our brain deceives us about alcohol: how it compels us to drink too much, too often, and at the wrong times, and how control and free will with respect to alcohol are taken from us. It explains why we are changed emotionally, how memory and thinking are distorted, and the psychological consequences that follow this. It is essential knowledge for anyone trying to stop drinking, or thinking they may need to. It shows you what you are trying to fight and how it will oppose you.
