Why You Drink and How to Stop: A Journey to Freedom
by Veronica Valli, Published December 6, 2013
At last, a book that reveals why alcoholics think, feel and behave the way they do.
This book looks into the heart and mind of the alcoholic; it explains their thought processes, how they feel and why they behave so self-destructively.
It answers the question that every alcoholic and their loved ones have always asked, ‘Why do I/they drink this way?’.
"Wonderful book. A refreshing way to look at drinking and the reasons many struggle as they do. Rather than the clinical, overwhelming approach of many, Veronica has a simplistic approach that truly gets to the roots of why you may have gotten to the point you are."
"This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand their own destructive behavior or that of a loved one. The language is clear, concise, and makes recovery accessible. It is not only a positive message of hope but a guideline for rehabilitation."
"Veronica thoroughly explores the spiritual side of addiction. This is often over by authors who only focus on the physical and emotional dimensions."
"This book is amazing. I have read other books on stopping drinking. I am a therapist and have many clients who have drinking issues. This is the first book I have read that goes beyond the addiction itself and looks at why anyone would drink."
"Veronica's use of personal stories, throughout each individual chapter, powerfully illustrate the devastation to the active alcoholic and their loved ones in a way that a lot of comparable books do not. By reading this book, you really gets to see into the mind of the active alcoholic and then Veronica guides and suggests solutions and pathways to recovery."
"Over the past 8 years I have been fascinated with the alcoholic mind and read every book there is relating to the addiction but this book is by far the most Inspiring and informative. This book is a must."
MISS FLORENCE L MILLER
"This book is amazing. Whether you are an alcoholic looking for help, or the loved one of an alcoholic, this book will help you. In fact, I think anybody could be helped by this book because it really talks about the human condition - the fears and issues we all face."
"Although the title of the book might lead one to not initially pick up this book because, maybe alcohol is not a problem in their life would be missing out on a fantastic book. This book does deal with alcoholics and why they drink, but Veronica Valli incorporates her own sobriety experiences as well as those of clients (she's an addiction therapist) to dig even deeper."
"For me, this is possibly the best book I have ever read concerned with the description of alcoholism, in all of its facets, and in what you have to do to change. The author has a first hand understanding of the illness, and the dilemma that we face in recovery."
"I really liked that she explained how alcoholics think and feel. It helps me to understand that there is more to recovery than stopping drinking."

"I read a lot of books on giving up the booze but Veronica Valli is my heroine - the fact that she looks at the emotional reasons for drinking puts this book heads and shoulders above some of the others. Needless to say, I am still off the booze several months later."
