Description

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.

Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress relief associated with alcohol and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery.

This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie's own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-listen for anyone who drinks.

This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for.

Second Time's a Charm

I was actually given a hard copy of this book a few years ago. I'd been sober a year or so and while the giver meant well, he explained it as "this will teach you how to drink." I was disgusted, thinking that it had taken me 20 years til get sober, why on God's name would I want to play with that kind of fire, and promptly recycled it.

Fast forward a few years. I joined a company where there is a keg in the kitchen, and Friday night drinks are part of the cultural fabric. Within a week I was drunk again, and stayed drunk for the last year. In the recent few months I knew it was time again. I couldn't keep going anymore, loathed the taste of wine, and looking at myself in the mirror. My eyes had no life, I'd gained thirty pounds, and was constantly wondering if everyone knew my secret and was disgusted and disappointed with me as I was with myself. I scoured Audible for a book with the best reviews, with an author that didn't sound like a robot, and low and behold, I was face to face with a familiar cover. I've been sober now just shy of 2 weeks, beginning this book 2 days before I quit and finishing it this morning. I hope I never need to see it again, aside from recommending it to others, but I know it will be there to provide for me again, if and when I do.

Changed my "habits"

<<I want to qualify my review and if someone feels offended because of characterisation or for some other reason please accept my apology>>

Okay. I am not an alcoholic in the sense that I get drunk every night nor do I pass-out or lose my memory after drinking. I do have a drink after work and I enjoy getting together with friends and tying one on - consuming a lot in a short period but not to the point of passing out. (I can "handle" my alcohol - based on years of experience :))

After listening to this book (twice) I have realised that I am fooling myself - I do have an addiction. I have since changed my perspective on alcohol and have EASILY (without using will-power) reduced my consumption. The jury is still out if I will quit but I am already feeling the results of consuming less "poison". Thank you Annie G. for sharing your story and insights.

Read This Book and Free Yourself from Booze

Annie Grace has clearly struggled with alcohol and has done the research required to tell us exactly how this vile poison has been disguised as a fun and even healthy recreation; She's been to the puppet show and seen the strings and is telling us exactly how those strings are making us dance. At the end of the book you'll clip those strings and be free forever. Like Alan Carr before her Annie Grace has called out society and its lies to us about a socially accepted poison that kills tens of thousands of people every year. I started the book terrified that I couldn't stop drinking; just a few pages in I became terrified the book might make me quit; by the end I realized I'd been sold a despicable lie my whole life and was able to cast that lie aside and now know alcohol for it's TRUE form: a deadly poison that is killing us and our society.
Though Annie is not a professional voice actor and occasionally stumbles over words or phrases the passion she feels for the content is absolutely clear, even bringing me to the verge of tears multiple times. Thank you Annie. This book has changed my life.

Make sense of positive changes!

Great Listen! Guarantee some part of the book will call you out no matter where you are on your journey. Love the tactical approach to understanding alcohol and honestly it helps move you to "Take it or leave it" when it comes to having your next alcoholic drink. I listened to this while on long walks to help focus on my overall health during the 2020 Pandemic. I have not touched alcohol in over 30 days as I write this, have improved eating habits, am sleeping through the night, and am down at least 10 lbs in a month. I feel much better off for moving away from bad health habits. This book is a step in the right direction and I definitely recommend it to those who are considering a life with moderated or no alcohol in it period.

Can't drink alcohol anymore... even tho I want to

I picked up this book because I'm an advertising grad with a career in analytics who loved the idea of learning more about the portrayal of alcohol in the media. I did not expect that I would no longer be able to enjoy my vino. I ended up a sober person by complete accident. My brain literally tells me I no longer enjoy alcohol because of what I have learned in this book. Sadly, I do associate high end reds with my personal brand, but now all I taste is chemical and artificial sweeteners so I'm working on that.

Learning about the influential power advertising can have on our perceptions of self and the world has fascinated me for most of my life. I did case studies on diamond engagement rings 18 years before Netflix covered it in "Explained" - among others. I've read lots about beer brands, but haven't seen anyone take on alcohol at large the way Grace does in this book.

I'm still a bit shocked by how "free" my brain is to taste vino for what it really is... didn't see that coming. I consumed wine every day for years. I didn't think it was a problem and I didn't intend to change. Thanks for this real surprise and delight. To be clear, I didn't want to quit drinking. But I stopped being able to enjoy/finish my first glass of my favourite wines at Chapter 4. And it's not just wine. It's every alcoholic drink I used to "love". I just don't like them or want them anymore. That change was already taking place before I was finished the book.

Now my favourite full bodied go-to is a glass with generous splashes of blueberry juice & pineapple juice, reserved splashes of lime juice & ginger juice, topped up with San Pellegrino. Many thanks Annie Grace! Cheers!

A very different way to look at alcohol

I would recommend this book to everyone. This is not a preachy book about getting off the sauce but it looks at the science behind it. The societal ramifications that have been imposed on every one and if you are truly being honest with yourself when you read this or listen through audio it will make a great impact on how you perceive alcohol in your life. It doesn’t matter how much you drink, lots or little this book will change you. Here’s to your best life moving forward. Thanks Annie you’ve done good for everyone.

Coat-Tail Rider...

I know this book has helped many many people, as it is recommended by so many, and I hesitate to disparage a work that has helped so many. However, the author is simply standing on the shoulders of giants, regurgitating science she doesn't fully understand. Many times she makes the claim that she's been there, she's just like you, drinking more and more wine every night, but her claims sound disingenuous and falsely inflated for the sake of book sales. Never does she provide a story that really illustrates that she understands the struggle. The mere fact that she repeats the title of her own novel SO. MANY. TIMES. throughout the book speaks to her motivation. Let me save you the time in the beginning where she tells you that she cured her ongoing back issues with a book, and skip past the part where she explains the circulatory system in which the heart has only two chambers, and get to the end where she discusses detox as though it's a battle of will and not the only drug detox that can actually kill a person. She's a danger to alcoholics. She's a marketing hack trying to make money off of a debilitating disease by reframing the (more intelligent) work of others. I'm sad to say that I contributed to her profits. I hope this keeps you from making the same mistake.

Want to read an actual good book?
Alcohol Explained (1 or 2) is the only book you'll need, guaranteed.
