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.

70 Million Americans Limit Their Success by Doing This. Are You One of Them?

30 Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut Back or Quit Drinking

As you know, I'm an avid student of brain science and the psychology of success. But recently, I learned that over 70 million Americans are affecting their brain and its ability to support their success.

How?

By drinking alcohol excessively. 

Whether it's a working mom who drinks a "heart-healthy" bottle of red wine for dinner…

or an executive who relies on Scotch to unwind at the end of the day…

or a weekend warrior who "only" drinks during game time with friends...

excessive drinking can take a toll on your relationships, finances, career, health and family -- not to mention the guilt, shame and stigma that often goes along with this self-defeating habit. 

Did you know?

  • According to WebMD, heavy drinking shrinks key regions of the brain, contributing to memory loss and dementia.
  • Even more debilitating to your success path, however, are the subtle effects of excessive alcohol use such as difficulty with planning, judgment, problem-solving and higher intellectual functions that we need to live a successful life. 
  • Researchers have also linked alcohol consumption to more than 60 diseases including cancer, stroke, depression, gout, high blood pressure, nerve damage…and of course, heart disease.

Today, I'm writing to suggest an alternative to excessive drinking: cutting down or quitting in the privacy of your own home.

30 Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut back or quit drinkingMy new book The 30-Day Sobriety Solution, written with sobriety coach Dave Andrews and in bookstores now, provides a way to replace drinking with healthy new success habits that will create the exciting and vibrant life you want. It's a uniquely liberating approach to releasing yourself (or a loved one) 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.

What could your life look like in just 30 days -- free of excessive drinking?

  • "Brain fog" significantly decreases, helping you make better, more forward-thinking decisions. Plus, those generalized "aches and pains" start lessening, as does that sense of feeling lousy. "Brain fog" significantly decreases, helping you make better, more forward-thinking decisions.
  • You'll also begin to regain the respect of loved ones, colleagues, friends and even yourself. You'll no longer have to hide the evidence of your excessive drinking or waste valuable time on your "habit."
  • You'll even look better, feel better, wake up more refreshed, be more passionate with your mate, and begin to live life more richly with all your five senses operating at optimum levels.

After all, isn't a more rich and rewarding life what we all want -- instead of excessive drinking?

The 30-Day Sobriety Solution will help you cut back or quit drinking -- in the privacy of your own home and without the cost or stigma of rehab. In fact, with rehab costing up to $30,000 a month, this $28 book is a tremendous bargain -- costing you less than $1 a day.

It's All Because of You...

jack-giving-thanks

Here in America, it's Thanksgiving – and this year, I have more to be thankful for than ever before.

And it’s all because of you.

For the past 40 years, I’ve been on an ambitious mission: to make a huge positive impact on the world...

I truly believe we all have the right and the ability to live the life we want, and to be happy doing so. 

But to make such a drastic shift on humanity, I need help.  I cannot do it alone! 

That's why I created a “big hairy audacious goal” that will help me: to have one million individuals become certified “Success Principles” trainers – and partner with me to help people all over the world to dream big, take action, and create happier, more abundant, and purpose-filled lives for themselves. 

This is the legacy I want to leave on the world.  It's the number one thing that drives me.  I know I was put on this planet to help people, and I work every single day to find ways to do that.

This is why I started my Train The Trainer program six years ago, and it’s the reason I launched the new online version of the program this summer – to ensure that anyone, no matter where they live, can become certified to teach the Success Principles to others.

I’m extremely delighted to announce that in just a few short months, we now have more than 800 people enrolled in Train the Trainer Onlinefrom 63 countries! 

It fills me with a profound sense of pride to know that these people have stepped-up to join me in helping others become their best selves and create lives of deep joy and meaning.

Because if there’s one thing the world needs right now, it’s more people shining their light – and empowering others to do the same.

So today I would like to thank my team, who has worked so hard to help me make my audacious dream become a reality.

BUT I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU!

The support and encouragement I’ve received this year from our Canfield Success Community has been truly overwhelming – and inspiring!

If you’ve invested in any of my products and embodied their teachings in your life, you have helped make this success possible.

If you’ve attended any of my live events or participated in any of my free online training programs, you have helped make this success possible.

If you’ve opened and read any of the emails I’ve sent over the past year, or are one of my 835,000 Facebook followers, you have helped make this success possible.

Because when I sit down to write, it’s the idea of YOU reading my words and being inspired by them to improve your life – and the lives of those around you – that motivates me to keep on doing the work I do.

SO THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for continuing to inspire me to empower people through my work.  

You’re the reason I’m excited to get up in the morning – and if I’ve inspired you even a fraction of how much you’ve inspired ME, I will consider my life well lived.

Oh, and if you’re new to my community, or if this is the first time you’ve ever heard about Train the Trainer Online, feel free to check out the program here.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, no matter where you live in the world.

With gratitude, Jack.
