This is my personal review of the Destroy Depression eBook by James Gordon. I’ve been quite tough and honest about what it takes to beat depression because I know exactly what it’s like to feel the doom of this debilitating disease. Read on to see if you can feel my pain and how I’ve moved on and regained my life.
Here Comes The Doom Again!
That black cloud that hangs over you…Depression. Whoever has suffered from depression knows exactly what I mean and how it can destroy your very existence.
The things you do on a daily basis become labored with you have absolutely no interest whatsoever. The whole day should just leave you alone and let you sink further into a state of not caring.
Depression comes in many forms, but the ‘experts’ out there feel they have you covered. And the more depressed you become, the less they seem to care. Shouldn’t you be fixed by now? C’mon, shake out of it!
Those who are brave enough to seek help through their doctor only end up with various anti-depression pills that are tantamount to placebos. Many of these drugs slow you down even further.
Some people only feel better when they assume taking these drugs actually gets rid of depression. Were they really that depressed in the first place?.
Bundled along with these prescription drugs are other medicines to counterbalance the probable side effects caused the anti-depressants! You can’t win!.
Once you’ve taken the full course of these expensive pills, you may have access (after an age) to a professional counselor so you can tell them why you’re depressed. They will then attempt to get to the bottom of things and suggest a course of action for you to take.
Do they know how difficult it was to visit them in the first place? Don’t they understand that dispensing advice to a depressive is almost worthless in most cases? Do they realize nothing they will say will alter the fact that when in a depressive state, nothing matters?
I’ve Been There
I know this because it’s happened to me. I refrained from taking anti-depressants because, first of all, I didn’t want to admit I was depressed. But things got so bleak that it started to affect my family, so I went along and admitted to a doctor that I can’t cope with my depression.
And so went the routine above until there was nothing else that could be done. I’d taken the pills and received advice from a professional…and still, I was under a huge black cloud that wouldn’t stop rumbling and was ever getting darker.
Surely something should work? I’m not a mental case! I started to look elsewhere and when a window of relative normality appeared, I got my head together and spent the time looking at alternatives to getting rid of my depression.
I read a few reviews of books and they all sounded the same in giving out advice to shake me out of my ‘mood’. I didn’t like the look of many of them…they didn’t sit right with me. Also, most books were hundreds of pages thick! I want to fix my depression not become an expert on it!
An Easier Way?
I finally went with an eBook of all things written by a fellow sufferer by the name of James Gordon, a fellow Brit.
It caught my eye and his story resounded with mine. He was also tired of the mainstream treatment for depression and the sometimes incompetence of so called professionals who just didn’t understand his condition.
Instead of taking the prescribed drugs, he stopped. He also stopped the visits to mind helpers and researched for a natural and normal way to kick depression away once and for all. He made it almost his obsession to find a cure for depression by taking research notes from hundreds of clinically depressed self-help books and reference guides. He made changes along the way to his lifestyle until finally, he became free of depression.
It took him 3 years to compile the strategies. After being free of depression he put all his findings and treatments into one catch all eBook. This is now available to be bought online after a revamp to bring it into 2017.
Storm Clouds Be Gone!
I found this book in 2015 and it’s made all those drugs and medics become obsolete in my world. His Destroy Depression eBook really does what it says on the tin, and now, these days, it’s rare to find me in a ‘bad mood’ after going through his very effective rules to get rid of depression.
I no longer suffer from days of complete worthlessness and the black cloud that followed me around for weeks is no more.
The eBook I’m about to tell you about is a complete guide to stopping yourself falling into depressions. It’s not a pretty review as there is a lot of soul searching to be done if you want to finally get rid of depression.
The Destroy Depression System has cleared away those black clouds. Just follow the methods to the book if you really want to get rid of depression. I can only say it worked for me, and that was because I was so sick and tired of feeling doomed every day. I worked hard at this, as you will have to, but the rewards are totally worth it.
My Destroy Depression Review
First of all, I downloaded the Destroy Depression eBook onto my desktop after paying the $37 through Paypal. This gave me instant access to the product so I could get moving straight away whilst the mood was right. It’s in PDF form so I can read it on my tablet as well. You will get a confirmation email from the author, as well as one from Paypal.
You will find four sections, 3 in the form of bonuses, inside the Destroy Depression system all mapped out and easy to read.
The main core of this eBook deals with you, your outlook and why it’s vitally important to challenge personal thoughts. There are details of how depression is now a huge problem all over the world, backed up with stats and facts.
The first (bonus) section is going to be a way to alter your diet or bring in certain foods into your meal plans. This may sound weird for treating depression, but you have to start by looking at the foods you eat.
The second section is an introduction to a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT for short. This includes tools and a workbook you will be using.
The third section details a workshop for you to set goals. Without goals, the future is kinda bleak, right?
Finishing off the sections are details of the lifetime support, should you need it. It’s free, by the way.
The main details for this system to work for you may seem simple for such a huge problem, but don’t let that put you off. Details here are golden. The author doesn’t fill the book with fluff and filler. He knows you don’t need to read about the basics of depression or read a lot of stories telling you of other people’s depression woes. Many books just waffle on and only tell you what you already know about stress and depression.
I read some books, early on, where they try to motivate you into action. Have the authors of these guides even tried to get motivated themselves when in a state of total depression? I think not.
The Reality Of Depression
What the Destroy Depression eBook will detail for you is the fact that the condition is becoming almost epidemic worldwide. James will tell you why and what you can do about it. The facts and figures will underline that you are not alone.
Instead of relying on drugs and unemotional advice from the ‘experts‘ James invites us to pick and choose what’s important for us to hear in life and what to ignore. He tells us how to break a depression as soon as the tell-tale signs begin to rear its ugly head.
How to rearrange your thoughts into being proactive ones, instead of just lazily accepting what we hear to further rot away in our psyche. The use of sunshine, diet and little exercises all play a major part in helping us to get rid of depression. Take it from me, this is something, perhaps, your doctor doesn’t even think about telling you.
It’s a real eye-opener and makes use of your brain and mindset to overcome challenging thoughts and how to react to them. There are little tips that will play a remarkable part in overturning an upcoming depression attack.
No Fluff or Filler
You won’t find an index of problems and acronyms here, just clear and sound advice to keep the monster of depression away from the door. The advice also will enable you to put your own spin on things.
Everyone is different, so don’t be afraid to use your own ideas for even improving the Destroy Depression Solution. In fact, James encourages you to find your own tweaks to suit you even better.
I found this part excellent because I’ve always done things my own way and have felt restricted when I’ve had to comply…it’s the rebel in me, I guess! The big picture is explained further, but at the end of the day, you can use your own personal ideas to break the ensuing depression.
I loved the idea of being your own boss in this system. You will need to sit down and have a good talk with yourself. Start doing and saying what you think. It really is liberating, and if done the right way, will free so much of the clutter that just piles up in your mind and can trigger a bout of depression.
I guess you could say the Destroy Depression eBook is like no other advice about getting rid of depression. It will bring out the real you, not the shadow, and will feel like a breath of fresh air to hear such advice being given.
Price vs Real Cost
For $37 it was totally worth it. I’ve spent hundreds on prescriptions and saved so much time that I now realize my depression was robbing me of life itself. Why be made a prisoner when you can easily break out by just thinking and acting a little differently from your usual way?
Of course, the Destroy Depression eBook comes with a no fuss 60-day money back guarantee if you really find it can’t help you.
I will say, you will have to work at this, but as I said earlier, the effort will be rewarded by having your life back…and that’s a HUGE benefit.
The workbook inside the eBook must be used. You may be astounded at your reactions to certain incidents that life throws at you. Write them down and read them back a few hours later.
The voice inside your head can damage your outlook on life, and using the workbook, and tools, you will silence those voices. We all have them, so don’t be afraid to admit it…just be aware that you will have to stop certain thoughts and replace them with positive ones.
That is one helluva step right there!
But it’s all covered inside the book, so you’re not on your own. This is where a lot of people who have depression will begin to see that it’s not all bad. Try telling me that before I read the Destroy Depression book!
The Change In Me
I would only ever see the downside of things and my overall mantra was ‘What’s the point?’ Now, it’s changed completely and I can now see it really is all in the head. There, I’ve said it!
Believe me, there were days I couldn’t even be bothered to get out of bed. There were days when I would sit in a dark room in silence, or even lie on the floor.
How messed up is that?
I could feel the air change when and I knew I would soon be under that huge black cloud and nothing could be done to stop it. You know it’s bad when nothing, and I mean nothing, matters anymore.
Now I see myself as optimistic, ready for anything and alive to the world around me. All it took was some hard work, an admittance that some things I thought were right, were just plain wrong and a good amount of self-belief.
The Destroy Depression system will also help you see certain preconceptions in a different light.
You Are What You Eat
Not only is it the thoughts we conceive that bring on a depression, but also the food we eat. There are mood foods which only fuel the temptation to close down. The diet book that comes along with the destroy depression eBook will let you know which foods do that and which foods counter them.
You may be surprised. Some foods are a staple, but not in our world! I now understand why some days were worse than others. Junk food really is the pits!
Since taking more interest in the Mediterranean diet, my body and mind have reacted accordingly. You are what you eat, they say, and now I believe them!
You will see fast food in a different light. We all know it’s not very good for us, but have you any idea how much damage it can do? Pretty evil stuff!.
Look Forward, Not Back
Another thing I took to my heart was the goal setting section. I never really set goals, even when I wasn’t in a depression. The thought was always ‘why bother, it’s never going to happen’. Incredible that I used to feel that way.
Now I look for opportunities to help reach those goals, and if they seem impossible at first, the fun is finding out how to accomplish them.
BTW, I would never have said the word ‘fun’ 3 years ago! The reason to have a goal is to focus on something you want to achieve. When you get to the goal, the feeling is immense. Even euphoric. I could give you some examples of my own goals, but that would just take away what this review is all about.
OK, one example because it made me proud, I’ve always wanted to hike one hundred miles. It seemed impossible at the time I wrote it down. But preparing for it was the focus part of it. I needed equipment, guides, clothing, camping gear and exercise…plenty of exercise!
This I completed last year when I walked the Hadrian wall path. I’ve now set my sights (my goal) to walk the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coastal Path this year.
Back to the Destroy Depression Review
I digress. The Destroy Depression eBook has printable charts so you can keep track of your progression. You will see your thoughts changing daily and it’s great to see the proof that this is working.
Keeping records only helps get over depression. You can see actual work being done and the fact that you’re doing it shows your depression is slowly being beaten.
You will also get lifetime updates to the system. So whenever the author adds sections, you will always be aware and be able to download them as soon as they become available.
Nothing Confusing Here…
Destroy Depression is very easy to understand
There is nothing in here that will confuse you or make you overthink things. The DD solution is explained with clarity and only after a few days of work on your behalf, you will start to feel an uplift in mental thoughts. Now isn’t that different?
Everything is in order, so you won’t be skipping backward and forwards.
You pay for the main guide but the bonuses are linked to it. You get the CBT workbook and tools, The depression-free Mediterranean diet book, The goal setting workbook and free lifetime updates.
A Warning and a Rant
This is not a quick fix for tackling depression. You will need to work on your depression. But as soon as you feel the black cloud arriving, you can do something about it by delving into this book and the work you’ve carried out beforehand will see you cope.
Soon enough, you will be free from depression. Not everyone will be in ‘the mood’ to start straight away. But once that window of brief light appears you will find ways to rid yourself of this horrible condition.
The best thing to do is be prepared.
Depression will not be a factor if you’re ready and prepared. When you’ve been cured of depression, image how you will feel to let other sufferers know they can beat it. You will be able to understand what they’re going through and offer them a solution. Just like I’m doing here.
Cost and Guarantee
I can understand that some people will think the $37 fee is too steep. But what price is success? I wasn’t prepared to read through hundreds of pages (I doubt if my depression would’ve allowed me too!) and I was tired of paying out for standard treatment of a disease no one really understood.
So, $37 is a drop in the ocean compared to that. And it’s always available, day or night.
What I’ve learned about myself and how I handle things now are priceless to where I was before.
And did I mention there is a 60-day money back guarantee with this eBook?.
The Destroy Depression system really is for anyone who is sick of their depression and all the baggage that comes with it. Anyone who puts in some time and real effort to beat their depression really does want to be free of it.
You cannot take this lying down anymore. Find that window of opportunity when things are OK for the moment and reach out for the Destroy Depression system.
Who is the Destroy Depression System NOT for?
There will always be people who cannot commit to breaking their depression. People who are not willing to pay for, or carry out instructions. It’s a part of human nature. I was a part of that tribe until I’d simply lost the will to live, and thankfully, I saw an opening and took charge of my life.
It took guts and challenging work, but no one else or no ‘thing’ was helping me. I jumped at the chance for the sake of myself and more importantly, my family.
If your content with only experiencing depression now and again, this program isn’t for you; If you think you’ll be ok with the drugs, this program isn’t for you; If you can’t follow instruction in order, this program isn’t for you; If you’re not prepared to change your mindset, this program isn’t for you.
Your mind MUST be prepared to go out of your comfort zone for however long it takes.
If you’re prepared to do that and are determined to end the depression nightmare, you will benefit enormously by finishing the course.
The fuel that is driving you into despair is your present thoughts. You will be able to challenge them and turn them around in a completely different and positive direction.
Are you prepared to learn how?
Again, not everyone will follow through, and I must tell you it won’t be easy. There is no point in saying it’s a breeze. You really must want to end your depression for good.
The diet book could have benefitted with a few more recipes in it, but you will get the idea and will be able to add your own spin to the menus, but I do feel James could add lots more recipes to the book, and I hope he will keep updating them in future book updates. The diet part is important and perhaps it is a little light on information. My only tiny gripe with the system.
My Personal Opinion?
In my opinion, yes. It gave me a whole new way of understanding my depression and how to get rid of it. I may have felt uncomfortable spilling my thoughts onto paper in some of the exercises, but I now see it was merited and worthy.
I don’t see many advisors teaching depressed folk this as a way of eliminating their demons. It’s time to get real with your depression. It’s a thing, a real living dangerous monster that can destroy you. You need to be big here and take the bull by the horns. The effort you put in will reward you infinitely.
Considerable effort will be needed, and it sounds like I’m putting you off here, but I need to be truthful. This is tough and only the strong will survive the course.
Consider the Options
Are you tough enough, sick enough and determined enough? If you’re true to yourself, prepared to change beliefs and dig into your deepest thoughts this program is for you. Depression is a huge problem in your life right now. Awaken you inner warriors to defeat it.
The option of not reaching out to cure your depression doesn’t bear thinking about.
If depression was easy to beat, imagine the cost of the cure? And if depression wasn’t a problem everyone would be happy. Let’s beat this! It’s very real.
You will find James Gordon, the author of the Destroy Depression very assessable too. I believe now that he is about to introduce personal attention via Skype but don’t quote me on that, If you want to read further about what’s inside the Destroy Depression system, then go here.
I feel I’ve been pretty brutal in my description of what is needed to beat depression, but it does take a mammoth effort to do just that. You won’t find my kind of advice and review on many websites that spell out the real difficulties of beating depression. Remember, I was a former sufferer.
I may even have put you off buying the Destroy Depression eBook, but I don’t want anyone coming back to me and saying it didn’t work.
The Destroy Depression system helped me out 100%. I can’t give a bigger recommendation than that. And if I can beat depression, you can too.
I used to think ‘what’s the point’ an awful lot of times in the past, but now I really can see the point! And it’s as clear as a bell!
Whatever you decide to do, I wish you well because I know the hell of depression and how it can destroy lives. It’s not a good place to be.
Do something about it.
