The Private Family Pain That Inspired Me To Write My Latest Book

my private pain with alcoholism by Jack Canfield

Over the past few years, I've been dealing with a private pain that I want to share with you today.

After growing up with an alcoholic mother, I was saddened when the nightmare of excessive drinking and drug use hit my family again — this time, as my sister and three of my children became part of the 70 million Americans who drink excessively (and often combine alcohol with recreational drug use).

Though we finally resolved their addictions through lifestyle modification and rehab, I turned my mind to ways to help them replace the habit of excessive drinking with a lifestyle that was future-focused, purposeful and compelling — a life that would be more exciting and rewarding than drinking with friends or getting high.

I wondered, Could the success psychology and brain science I'd been teaching for nearly 40 years be the answer?

Then I met a man who had been quietly using the principles from my books to coach excessive drinkers in the habits, mindset and behaviors they needed to cut back or stop drinking — and replace their drinking with a positive and fulfilling new life.

Sobriety coach Dave Andrews has helped more than 1,000 former drinkers replace alcohol with a new way of thinking and reacting to life's opportunities and challenges -- using my own success training concepts.

Because his results were so widespread, he and I decided to coauthor a new book about this 30-day system.

30 Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut back or quit drinkingThe 30-Day Sobriety Solution helps you (or a loved one) cut back or quit drinking in the privacy of your own home -- without the time commitment (and sometimes negative reinforcement) of group meetings and without the cost and stigma of rehab. (In fact, with rehab costing up to $30,000 a month, this book is a tremendous bargain -- costing you less than $1 a day.)

The 30-Day Sobriety Solution is a uniquely liberating approach to releasing yourself from the bonds of alcohol in your life. And if you're already in recovery, it will support your lifelong goal of staying alcohol-free.

To get your copy, click here and and I'll help you over the next 30 days with a unique digital course I've prepared along with the book to keep you focused on your sobriety goal. It's yours free when you order The 30-Day Sobriety Solution today.

  • You're still a great person Jack Canfield no matter what! Thanks for being human and sharing a truth about you. Do you realize truth frees us my friend. You've helped many in life including me, in fact it was you who prompt me to write The Compilations of Foresta Gump. It was through your persistence to insist I achieve man! You have to know how hard it hit me when you decided to decline from the inclusion of my book. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do--delete your fabulous poem written just for you depicting your greatness. I hold no animosity towards you my friend but I was greatly disappointed Jack!
    I too grew-up with alcoholism--we were a church going family until Satan destroyed a good family through alcohol. Thank you Jack for your honesty today, because honesty begets honesty!
    In God we Trust!
