A MUST READ FOR ANYONE IN RECOVERY. This book may save your life along with your sobriety. Anything by Gorski is good, but since we have short attention spans, this one is short enough (about 24 pages)that you may be able to finish it. Read it before it's too late. I didn't, and I will (seriously) die because I didn't. You are not special and unique. You can make a list of your addictions in order of importance, and you'll go to the next one when you stop what you're doing now. Food and Love are second on a lot of lists, and you are getting your emotions back. You'll find that out once you read this. Test Step 3 once love hits. Even the First Step. They become your drug of choice (1), and you cannot control anyone (3), especially another addict. Imagine someone else trying to control you. But you can't stay away, you're addicted to them.

A precious and practical little book that very clearly and accurately explains what and why we repeat the destructive patterns - patterns I've done all my life. Even after 3 years in recovery, I found myself in a hopeless (I thought) situation trying to find the "BIG LOVE" that would save me. It inspired me enough to find help in other programs that deal more with feelings rather than not taking that first drink.

I enjoy reading anything by Gorski. After I started this guide, it became clear that I had been trying too hard to get or find what I was supposed to let happen naturally. I realized that my pattern in relationships was all based on my past behaviors which I had recently identified and am currently resolving through additional work. I've changed a lot since and will go back and re-read after one year to see where I'm at. This is a very quick read, clear and concise.

I was given a copy of this in an all male treatment center. By the grace of God and the program I have remained clean and sober. I get to lead a group to the same center once a week which recently became co-ed. This book literally saved my recovery by bringing truth to me about relationships in recovery and I know it will save someone else. Great to read and even better to share with another addict/alcoholic.
