Abstract
This book provides a detailed nine-step program for people who feel they may be drinking too much and who want to learn how to reduce their intake. "Moderate Drinking" is the official handbook of Moderation Management (MM), a support group network devoted to helping people reduce their drinking. Leading professionals in the addiction field have aided MM founder and author Audrey Kishline in compiling the guidelines, the techniques, and the step-by-step program contained in this no-nonsense book. "Moderate Drinking" is not for chronic drinkers who are dependent on alcohol, or who experience significant withdrawal symptoms when they stop drinking. This book is intended for people who have experienced mild to moderate levels of alcohol-related problems. MM helps people take responsibility for their own actions. This book offers no excuses and no messages of powerlessness. If you are ready to do something about your drinking, read this book and accept the challenge to change.
