“I quit drinking last year,” explains author John E. Dough. “Before I did, I started to have some problems that traced back to drinking.” In early 2010, he had a brief exposure to rehab – an outpatient course on drinking required by his OWI. He also had to do in-patient detox for a few days. He attended one AA meeting and quickly learned that it was not for him. He kept on drinking. Then, last year he decided to just do it the DIY way- successfully. Dough pens his new book. “How I Quit – The DIY Way: No AA, No Rehab Center, No Medication” (published by AuthorHouse).

Dough summarizes his book best:

There is nothing wrong with drinking. Most people handle it just fine. But, some people do it too much. They would probably be better off just giving it up completely. This is easier said than done. A person who endeavors to do so needs to understand the physical and mental aspects of discontinuing drinking. Then, he can do it the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Way. There are lots of advantages to life sans alcohol. To a heavy drinker, it may seem unthinkable. But, actually it is a pleasant surprise. If you know what you’re doing you can DIY. It will improve your reputation rather than hurting it.

In “How I Quit – The DIY Way,” Dough speaks not only from his reading of several books, but also of his own personal experiences.

“What I advocate is against conventional wisdom – that you need ‘professional help.’ That means rehab treatment for one to two months. Then, follow up with AA. That means weekly meetings for life! Who wants to do all that? Who can? This book says there is a better way.”
