While most books about alcohol problems demand abstinence, Jason Newman has taken a more moderate approach in How to Control Your Alcohol Consumption. Jason explains what is considered one drink and how many drinks are deemed healthy for the average person per day. The key to responsible drinking is controlling your drinking instead of letting the drinking control you. Of course, some need to abstain, but Jason writes for those who can manage their drinking. To help explain why moderation in drinking is required, Jason shares the various dangers involved in drinking. You are in charge of setting boundaries and making them stick. Jason gives you the skills needed and the encouragement to help you achieve sobriety while still enjoying the occasional drink. Only when you have become completely honest with yourself and those around you can you choose to either abstain or curtail.
The reader will find no preaching or lecturing in How to Control Your Alcohol Consumption by Jason Newman. Instead, his style of writing is compassionate and informative. He gently leads the reader on a trip to explore the types of people who drink alcohol and the dangers of drinking to excess. Jason explains in layman terms the needs and skills for being sober. He spends time explaining how to set boundaries and how to best communicate the limits you set. Instead of condemning those who relapse, Jason speaks words of encouragement. This book is full of compassion, inspiration, motivation, and encouragement. Jason offers his readers wisdom from his life as a former heavy drinker that learned how to control his alcohol consumption.
