More alcohol abusers and alcoholics stop drinking on their own than through AA, 12 Step programs, and all treatment programs combined. Far more! In "How To Stop Drinking On Your Own" Dr. Mary Ellen Barnes and Dr. Edward Wilson combine their 25 years of personal and professional experience so that you too can quit drinking on your own. Recovered, not "in recovery." Ex-drinker, not "alcoholic."

About the Author
How did we become the alcoholism treatment experts?
Picture us twenty years ago, looking for ways out of our own or our family’s alcohol related problems and having no where to turn but the same failed programs that still exist today. We knew those revolving door programs didn’t suit us or our circumstances.
We’re sure you can appreciate how happy we were, years after working our own way out of alcohol problems, to discover our mutual interests and perspectives, combine our differing types of expertise, and, finally, to be able to offer you access to the variety of custom tailored approaches we never had.
You’ll also like knowing that we haven’t stopped looking for new and better ways to help while we’re also practicing what we preach. While our work absorbs us we haven’t forgotten to balance our lives. Early mornings frequently find Ed at the gym lifting weights and training others. An award winning writer he’s also at work on his first novel. Mary Ellen sails, kayaks, and travels extensively, most recently to Alaska and the Antarctic. Together we’re always looking for new ideas, better methods, and increased opportunities for our readers, our clients, and ourselves.
We’ve spent over twenty years helping individuals, couples, families, and businesses deal effectively with alcohol problems. You can take advantage of everything we’ve learned over the years to treat your problems quickly, economically, and permanently.
You undoubtedly understand the value of avoiding labels, and stigma, but also in dealing with real problems, not just redirecting your focus to another form of alcohol fixation. Why settle into being a life-long victim when you can be a winner instead?
The approaches we use are all based on one simple concept – we treat you the way we wanted and deserved to be treated when the alcohol abuse problems – personal and family – were our own.
Why would you use our methods for overcoming alcohol abuse?
You know you don’t want to be forced into a cult, labeled, stigmatized, or reduced into being less than you are. You may have gotten derailed by events, mistakes, or circumstance, but it doesn’t mean you’re powerless or need to keep alcohol as the central focus of your life. When you focus on improving your life, and squeezing alcohol out, you’ll have a better life and the temptation to relapse will evaporate.
Readers and clients report both reduced alcohol problems and improved health and personal relationships.
Can you imagine how good it will feel to erase alcohol’s effects? To regain your health and vitality? To renew your marriage? To have a sex life again? All these things are not only possible, but an alternative to drinking that won’t leave you wanting to return to the bottle for companionship and escape.

I found this selection easy to comprehend and employ. Like every other life-changing act, sometimes you need support but the author provides the means to contact him if this is necessary. It is nice to know that not all programs engage in the weeping and wailing of other more well-known means and that you can effect change on your own in the complete confidentiality of your home.
