Synopsis: This is a true story of endurance, survival, and success with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and God. A journey that begins in innocence, staggers forward through six decades, and ends up teetering on the brink of death not once, but many times! It is an engaging story that details the life of a now retired salesman who will inspire anyone with a drinking problem and encourage those who are related to a problem drinker. This work is designed to save the lives of people who think their problems incurable, their outlook suicidal. It should take the mystery out of AA and open the door to all of those in need of help from AA and their fellowship. It will saves live because it will help many to identify with the writer, his feelings, and observations over a lifetime. Alcoholism is described as an elevator and the ways to get off (and stay off) are discussed frankly. The expression "what causes the problem is the problem" is used extensively to help focus the reader on the real life problem drinking, not the issues and troubles resulting from problem drinking.---- About the Author: Robert Russell Allen grew up in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and joined the Army at the age of 17. He now resides in Queensbury, New York, where he attends meetings each day with his friends in AA, spends time with his wife and family, and manages a Facebook page of 5,000 friends in recovery. Alcohol ruled Allen's life before recovery became his focus. Without help, it would have killed him.-----

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.
Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery.  
This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us.  Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie’s own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks.

This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for.
