Your Alcohol Problem is Not That Bad | You’re Not Out of Control

In this video, I talk about Allen Carr and his book Easy Way to Control Your Drinking… He basically rips apart any ideas about controlling drinking. I also go into my own control, or perceived control, how that affected my life for over 30 years… This is the same as all of us. We think we’re in control of this drug, but we’re far from it.

Control yourself or allow alcohol to control you!

Until next time...
Onwards and Upwards!

    Once again Kevin right on the money with addictions, and l loved the “fly trap” we call it the Venus Fly Trap in Oz. Oh, and the other day when you was saying that you got crook that you thought your heart was gunna pop out your chest, same thing here twice rang for an Ambulance went to hospital only to be told my heart is fine, since being dry and sober no such thoughts.

    Keep up the great work,

      Hi, Just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart, I saw your video of how alcohol is a poison and the only way it gets inside, is by our self buying it and drinking it. You make me think so differently about alcohol, but more important the power we have over it, because is our choice!!! 🙂 So simple but , So True!!! Is not about blaming no buddy, even our salves. Is about changing your mind! and see this from different perspective. I’m 4 months going to 5 months with out drinking 😃 I even don’t think about it. really it’s not hard ones you change your mind and the concept. I had 15 years of drinking and last 12 were heavy! was drinking pint of vodka. Thank Ü God bless you. All my love 😍 and thankfulness to you and your love one! 🤩😊☺️ I’m very happy and content. Thanks

    One of the best videos to date. Such a great topic and the parallels drawn between other addictions really drove the point home.

    A great video. A message that we should remind ourselves of often. Are you in control of your alcohol drinking, or is it in control of you?

    Hi Kevin I watch your videos everyday.I like the straight talk and you encourage me to go out walking. I am an adult child of both parents of alcoholics. I live with my partner who is also an alcoholic I support him and he is now reading your website and watching the videos,he likes the format. I find all your material very helpful to me to get a better understanding of addiction. I find it helps me in my own life in my own on going awareness.Thank you onward and upwards.

    Great analysis of the addiction paradox!! It rear’s it’s ugly head in so many factions of our lives. As addicts we can switch from one to another, I struggle with completely eliminating the desperate and outlandish behavior fin one part of my life or another. I go from excessive work, to alcohol or food dependence, to major working out, to just focusing on household projects. Do you have any insight to how to break the addictive personality? Seems like unmatter where Or how I turn I get hung-up on some behavior that is in healthy in one way or another. My biggest problem is that I continue to think that my drinking is what I have the most control over: usually by myself in the evening, after everyone around me has fallen asleep, and I can hit the bottle to give my brain a break from all the daily pressures of life and living. I still get up everyday and go to work, and I justify my behavior as always remaining a “high functioning alcoholic” which only upsets my family further. They want me to quit totally, but all the demons in my head are best quieted by getting slightly smashed before I go to bed so I can sleep with a quiet mind and clean consciousness washed washed over by copious amounts of whiskey.

      I think being an addict is OK. You just have to find healthy things to be addicted to. I’m addicted to eating healthy at the moment. An addiction I hope I take with me for the rest of my life. Cheers Keith

    Dear Kevin , I don’t normally send emails however I felt I needed to thank you . I quit drinking on my 45th birthday on 31st October this year after a couple of failed attempts always thinking I control the drink , I know I can’t . I’m also a fan of Allen Carr however your daily emails and books are helping so much especially on both the not so positive days and the really good days so thank you so much, Sharon X
