"Drs. Miller and Munoz provide an easy-to-follow approach for people who are worried they may be drinking too much. The tools presented here for achieving moderate drinking are supported by a wealth of evidence; examples sprinkled throughout the book illustrate how to accomplish each goal of the program. Anyone who has struggled with the need to cut down will benefit from reading this book and following its simple, honest advice."--Katie Witkiewitz, PhD, Regents' Professor, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico

"Now in its second edition, this book has only gotten better. By helping readers overcome alcohol problems on their own, this book fills an enormous need, and is consistent with the scientific evidence that self-change is a common pathway to recovery. A welcome alternative in a field where those with concerns about their alcohol use are given few options."--Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, ABPP, and Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University

"In a nonjudgmental way, this book helps you scope out your issues with alcohol and decide what to do, putting the ball in your court instead of being prescriptive. It is filled with useful and practical strategies that you can pick and choose from to meet your own needs."--Anne M. Fletcher, MS, RDN, author of Inside Rehab and Sober for Good
