An invaluable help for overcoming addictive behaviors
on October 4, 1998
This is the best book I have seen addressing the challenges of those who try repeatedly to break out of compulsive behaviors, but without success. Through real-life case studies of three individuals who successfully overcame compulsive behaviors (an eating disorder, a drug problem, and a pattern of homosexual behavior, respectively), the authors discuss the reasons for people's failures to break addictions, as well as the steps necessary to successfully break out of a compulsive cycle. Although geared specifically toward members of the LDS Church, the book is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in overcoming an addiction or helping someone else do so.
