Prolonged drug use impairs judgment and the ability to focus for long periods of time. In my new book “Lifelong Sobriety” I provide short, precise and highly accessible chapters. Each chapter is designed to teach about or change a specific behavior.
The advice is relevant to the topic of each chapter and is the type of advice you would find in a recovery group. My book focuses on the recovering addicts emotional health which helps addicts find answers to their issues.
My love of writing and my fascination with addictive behavior and the recovery process led me to my chosen path of becoming a Counselor. After working in the field for over two decades, I decided to write about my experiences and hopefully reach a larger audience.
Willingness to stop drinking or using drugs is a big obstacle for addicts and loved ones who are trying to help individuals suffering from addiction. This book helps loved ones gain insight into addiction and the recovery process.
This book is also for Psychologists, Counselors and Relationship Coaches.This easy to read book covers various topics: depression, stress, anxiety, loneliness, impulsivity, impatience, anger, procrastination, negative attitudes, self-centeredness, low self-esteem, and more. These overwhelming emotions and their effect may eventually lead you to drinking alcohol or using other addictive substances.
