At last, a book that reveals why alcoholics think, feel and behave the way they do. This book looks into the heart and mind of the alcoholic; it explains their thought processes, how they feel and why they behave so self-destructively.
Written by an addictions therapist and recovered alcoholic, it answers the question that every alcoholic and their loved ones have always asked, "Why do I/they drink this way?" It then goes on to offer a solution by explaining how alcoholism is a three part disease: a physical addiction, a psychological craving and obsession, and a spiritual illness, all of which have to be dealt with, especially the little understood spiritual component. This book, written in easy to understand language, isn't prescriptive but offers a deep understanding of the vital components that drive an alcoholic - and this in turn illuminates the way out. It is simply a must read for any struggling alcoholic and their loved ones.
