"The sober life is so superior to the drinking life that there is no contest. But most drinkers have been drinking for many years, or even decades, and find [it] hard to change. The sober coach takes the hand of the reader and shows them the beautiful truth: that alcohol is a pathetic and unpleasant little drug." - William Porter, author of 'Alcohol Explained'
"From designing your own sober toolbox to changing your mindset, Simon shows you the path to set yourself up for success." - Judy C.
DO YOU FEEL TRAPPED BY ALCOHOL? DO YOU FIND YOURSELF THINKING ABOUT DRINKING TOO OFTEN? DO YOU PUT ALCOHOL AHEAD OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN YOUR LIFE?
If so - here's some good news. You can quit drinking, and it's not as difficult as you think.
Simon Chapple is a Certified Alcohol Coach who has helped thousands of people change the way that alcohol features in their lives. In How to Quit Drinking in 50 Days he'll give you a structured way to find complete freedom from alcohol - for now, or forever.
This 50-day journey to freedom is split into two parts. Days 1-25 will ask you to take an honest look at the impact alcohol has had on your life, to examine the reasons for your drinking, and will arm you with the best strategy for quitting alcohol successfully. Days 26-50 will ask you to make the commitment to taking a break from alcohol - taking each step with one chapter a day, and answering the questions that come up.
There are strategies for dealing with challenges and setbacks, and a wealth of resources for finding support and inspiration. Above all, there is a genuine passion for the sober adventure, and the huge rewards of an alcohol-free life - a life of freedom that's waiting for you.

Simon's approach is that we should move into sobriety with a sense of excitement and a feeling of joy that we are gaining something special and becoming part of a wonderful community. There is no deprivation, stigma or shame, this is a positive journey of growth and readers should feel empowered that they are making a personal life-choice that allows them to be the authentic version of themselves.
