by: Patrick Holford

Patrick Holford looks at why millions of people have cravings for substances such as coffee, sugar and alcohol, as well drugs such as sleeping pills, antidepressants, tobacco, marijuana and cocaine. He shows how the brain becomes addicted through chemical imbalance, and how it can be ?unaddicted? through a combination of diet, supplements and lifestyle factors. Written in association with Dr David Miller, an expert in relapse prevention, and Dr James Braly, a specialist in nutritional treatments, this book looks at each of the most common substances that people become addicted to and offers advice on how to tackle that particular substance safely and effectively. In-depth, practical and accessible, How to Quit without Feeling S**t, helps you to understand why you feel the way you do, whether you have a dependency or have already given up but still feel rough. Holford provides a twelve-week action plan for becoming addiction free without suffering the deeply unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that most addicts expect.
