"I have recommended this to many people since" according to othermother. The honesty with which this was written is appreciated and from the first page I felt Dave was telling my story. It's a book that reinforces the steps and lets you know that you're not alone in your journey. I have recommended this to many people since. thank you Anonymous Dave.
How many ‘self-help books’ have you bought, or read, looking for the solution? Or maybe you’ve even sought counseling, or prayer, or perhaps you’ve even ventured into a 12 Step meeting, but still you can’t seem to stop. If any of these ring a bell, then this book is for you. How many times have you said to yourself, "Okay, that's it! I'm done! I'll never have another drink (or hit, or bowl, or smoke, etc.) again! I'm quitting!?" And then hours –sometimes less – later, there you are, back to your drug of choice, briefly cursing yourself as a weakling, and then erasing that feeling, along with any others, as you sink back into your addiction. If you really are at a dead end, and sick and tired of being sick and tired, then stop ‘trying’ and start ‘doing’ by picking up this book and beginning your recovery.. WARNING: This is not a self-help book. It will also require you to ask for help from those who have been where you are now. After all, if you could help yourself, you would have done so already, right? This book is a plan for action, and will require effort on your part, not just reading and contemplating. Twenty plus years ago I was right where you are now, and thought myself hopeless because I had tried every single thing I knew, except one: humbly asking for help, and then being willing to follow what was suggested, no matter what
