Julian Kirkman-Page is an old friend of Club Soda. You can read several of his guest blogs on this site.
He is also an author, “I Don’t Drink!: How to quit alcohol – a drinker’s tale” is his first book. It tells the story of how he quit drinking for good. In his own words:
I had never considered myself to be an alcoholic. But after 40 years of being a drinker, I had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, regular bouts of crippling gout, a frighteningly short-term life expectation, and I finally realised just what a mess my life had become. I had even watched my mother and elder brother die due to drink, my brother was only 56! Then, in December 2012 I decided enough was enough and I quit alcohol forever. I created my own methodology and without resorting to drugs, rehab or any outside help, I have never touched a drop since and I know I never will again. I have never been so wonderfully healthy or happy as I am now, I have revolutionised life for me and those around me I love. Even my type 2 diabetes has been resolved, and I expect to live another 30 years at least. AND IMPORTANTLY – following my methodology, despite what you may anticipate now, like me you won’t miss drink at all!
