Are you worried you’re drinking too much? Has alcohol become a major part of your life? Do you fear it’s affecting your health? Your relationships? Your career? Are you ready to quit?
Many people drink too much and don’t realise the harm they can cause themselves and others. Some know they have a problem and want to quit but don’t know how to stop.
C.G.Ford, a former counsellor/holistic therapist and the #1 bestselling author of Stress Less, Mid-Life Career Rescue and Find Your Passion and Purpose, (BCA, Dip Psych) provides a fresh sobriety solution.
Anyone who needs to be kept on track or inspired to kick the drinking habit and commit to living sober will find genuine help in this refreshingly insightful and solution-focused book.
The Little Pinky No Drinky Book offers short sound bites of stand-alone readings designed to help you cultivate awareness and re-examine your relationship with alcohol amid the challenges of daily living.
This little book of big ideas offers a progressive programme of holistic—mental, emotional, physical and spiritual—support, guiding you through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the path to sobriety, well-being, joy, and happiness.
The tone is not preachy or moralising but wise, fun and joyful, with teachings presented in such a way that you’ll say: “I get it. I understand. There is another way.” Then, when the booze barons try to tempt you again, you’ll see through their ruse and no longer be tempted to imbibe their toxic drugs.
Empowering and affirming quotes in each chapter by sober celebs will cheerlead you on and remind you you’re not alone.
What you’re about to discover may be eye-opening, mind-changing or rejuvenating reinforcement to follow through on what you already know. The end goal? To make informed choices about what you are ingesting, how much, and why—and to be empowered to change your relationship with alcohol once and forever.
Whatever your pain, whatever your motivation, The Little Pinky No Drinky Book will help you achieve your goals-whether that’s getting sober or just cutting back to create positive, permanent transformational change in your life.
I really like the approach that this book takes in not attempting to stop drinking totally
“I work with people and their whanau/families on a daily basis who have, have had or have recovered from Alcohol and Other Drug issues. The damage caused by AOD overuse and abuse is enormous and has ongoing negative effects on our society and future generations mainly due to observation and learned behaviours. I really like the approach that this book takes in not attempting to stop drinking totally.
It instead explains and coaches how to manage and cope with consuming alcohol so that the damaging effects may be minimised. This is a very useful supportive book for ‘drinkers’ and their families. It is a book that is very easy to read and understand.
I really like the quotes, sayings and tools contained therein. This book is much bigger than just the social and familial issues with alcohol – It is in a very big way about ‘Your Beautiful Mind’. It fits very well with my style of practice and that is to start with the basics and move onwards and upwards from there. I see in the book an AHA (awakening, honesty, action) moment in the book. I really get the reference to wisdom (The smart person knows what to say, the wise person knows when to say it) and the associated learning. I will be recommending this ‘must read’ book to my clients and their whanau/families and anybody else who will listen”.

This approach is very different (and refreshing) from other books I’ve read
“One thing that I like about this book is that the author doesn’t trash other recovery programs whether she agrees with them or not. This approach is very different (and refreshing) from other books I’ve read that claim to be the “real or only solution” which involves tearing down other methods in the process, but as Cassandra’s book alludes–one form of recovery may work for some people and not others–it depends on the person, their physiology, background, life experience, etc.
At first, I thought the segments about advertising would be boring but they actually really appealed to the part of me that loves science, facts, and proof. Reading the explanations led to many “Aha!” moments! I also felt so relieved to read there is a sober/not drinking movement going on. I felt relieved and hopeful. How I wish this was going on when I started my own drinking career in my early teens. I’m feeling so grateful to Cassandra for writing it. There is so much vital information packed into this book and I wish fervently that it ends up on the best-seller list!”
