This #Quitlit review features This Naked Mind, by Annie Grace, which has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.
This Naked Mind
The first thing that struck me about this book was Ms. Grace’s claim that she has discovered a way to stop drinking permanently, with no cravings, sense of loss, or 12-step programs. She promises new insight and concepts that will allow you to consciously halt the drinking that caused you to pick up the book in the first place. I found this reassuring, as I had embarked on my own journey of living alcohol-free 14 months prior to reading the book.
Were Annie and I on the same page?
The answer was a resounding “Yes!” When I read, in Chapter 13, about how aligning one’s subconscious brain with their conscious desire to quit drinking will result in “spontaneous sobriety,” my jaw literally dropped. Here was the explanation I had been seeking to validate my cold-turkey, no-looking-back decision to quit drinking, and how I had experienced virtually no withdrawal symptoms or cravings. I had the exact same experience that Annie described her father having. It was reassuring to know that I wasn’t a unicorn!
