Can you believe it? According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 23.6 million Americans aged twelve or older, roughly thirteen percent of the population, are dependent on a substance.
Taking care of your emotional health is important. Many people tend to ignore it until they are overwhelmed. As a drug and alcohol counselor for over 25 years, I have worked with hundreds of individuals who manage their emotions through the use of mood altering chemicals. I realized there needs to be an addiction recovery book that offers straight talk in plain sensible language. The kind of simple advice a recovering drug addict might encounter in a recovery group. No academic jargon that would confuse an individual seeking help or family member. I decided to write such a book.
Lifelong Sobriety is the first recovery book that emphasizes the importance of taking care of one’s emotional health. Individuals seeking recovery or supporting addicted family members will find new hope by easily relating to the book’s key concepts, which contain interviews and anecdotes, relating the experiences of dozens of recovering addicts. Additionally, these stories will help readers gain insight into their own compulsive behavior and help them find the answers to their issues.
As a drug and alcohol therapist over two decades, I have closely observed their behaviors and have found out that addicts allow their overwhelming emotions to govern them and consequently remain sick. Many of us feel depressed, stressed, anxious, angry, frustrated, lonely, bored , etc., we do not have to rely on drugs or alcohol to deal with these issues.
My book is intensely personal, it helps individuals become better equipped to deal with their emotions and other issues in their lives. Creating the right mindset to deal with their emotions without resorting to the use of drugs or alcohol when overwhelmed with their emotions or faced against the odds.
We want our loved ones to be emotionally self-reliant and be able to handle their emotions effectively. Individuals with addictions and family members will benefit from this book. Follow the advice! The results will be amazing!
Lifelong Sobriety is the first recovery book that emphasizes the importance of taking care of emotional health. This book is action-oriented. It will guide addicts on the path toward recovery while recovering addicts will find a resource for maintaining their sobriety. They will find new hope by easily relating to the book’s key concepts, which will contain interviews and anecdotes, relating the experiences of dozens of recovering addicts. Additionally, these stories will help readers gain insight into their own compulsive behavior, their distorted thinking and help them find the answers to their issues.
This book is a natural extension of my first book, Insanity Beyond Understanding. In that book, I helped readers understand the behavior and attitude of addicts that keep them sick. Now, in Lifelong Sobriety, my focus is on helping readers find solutions to their issues, change their past behaviors, attitudes and learn how to manage their lives more effectively. The key to this book is in its brevity and accessibility to an audience that typically lacks the attention span to sit down to read a fact-filled book.
As a drug and alcohol therapist over two decades, I have closely observed their behaviors and have found out that addicts allow their overwhelming emotions to govern them and consequently remain sick. I closely relate to these individuals because, after all, they are human beings and have same emotions as I do. I feel depressed, stressed, anxious, angry, frustrated, lonely, bored etc., as they do. Only difference is that they rely on drugs to deal with their issues and I manage them without using drugs.
