This book made me double take and re-think a lot of things lately (like my coffee addiction.. yes, I admit it.. I'm addicted and get darn grumpy if i don't get my coffee lol..) laughing aside, I appreciate Dr. Hawkins book because it really makes us dig deep in our life... all of us are prone to addictions and no one is immune. It goes on to discuss how family's can help and how families hinder addictions (even though they may think they're helping!) It discusses those issues we all have dealt with as women (ie. Barbie Doll Syndrome - ya know being the perfect size 6.. or 0 these days). But it also covers more of today's issues like video games, internet surfing (gulp), chat rooms, cell phones, blogging, and internet addiction disorder...

The bottom line that Dr. Hawkins points out is that "Besides taking us away from ourselves, addictions take us away from God." He points out biblical issues that "Jesus knows the folly of chasing after riches....(see Matthew 6:21). I love how he uses practical and straightforward advice, as well as God's word and wisdom to help us through our issues.

a few of the chapters you'll find in this book are:

* Sexual Sanity
* Chasing your losses
* When Pleasing Others is Hurting You
* Facing Our Addictions
* Letting Go
* Healing Our Addictions

So if you're looking for some self improvement and want to deal with your own addictions (yes, even the coffee..) or know of someone in your family that needs help, this is a great place to begin and end.

Am I changed after reading this book? I think this book has made me aware of some things I hadn't thought about (or denied to acknowledge out loud), so yes. I am hoping to change some of my addictions.. to put my life back in focus. It reminds me that I'm still prone to past attractions and that I need to keep myself recovering as opposed to believing I can touch the stove and not get burnt

I love David Hawkins' books. 'Dealing with Crazy Makers' and 'When Pleasing Other's is Hurting You' have been a tremendous help to my everyday dealing with life. I bought Breaking Everyday Addictions to hopefully get advice for helping my teenage son quit smoking cigarettes. He wouldn't read it, so I did. I was frustrated because most of the book defined various addictions (which it was nice to see the variety, especially co-dependency....and other non-substance type addictions) and was repetitive. The last few chapters DID give good advice for breaking addictions but most of the advice was to seek professional help and join support groups, which is good advice, but seemed a little much for smoking cigarettes. I guess I thought the title "Everyday" Addictions would focus more on the small type addictions and would have more information on the common one of nicotine. But, again, I highly recommend David Hawkins for psychological self help type books.

The book is straight forward. Troubles happen in everyday life and come from different sources, and these sources said are discussed.

David Hawkins book draws you in with it's realistic definitions of the many addictions we submit to in modern life. At some point in the reading of this book, I promise you will see yourself and admit that he is spot on in calling our little "obsessions" addictions. Can't seem to stay away from Facebook? Can't turn your cell phone off for a whole day? Can't resist putting your $1.00 in for the MegaMillions jackpot? How about needing a DVR that will record 6 programs at once? Where did I hide that chocolate bar? I don't start my day until the coffee is in the cup and in my hand. These are the "small" addictions that we shrug off in the light of the seriousness of hard core drug or alcohol addictions we normally think of when faced with that word.

After all, we don't go through withdrawal. At least not physical withdrawal, anyway. Right? Well, let's take coffee out of that equation. (The headaches, fatigue, and downright meanness are very real withdrawal symptoms from good old caffeine).

Do you know what to do with your day if you don't turn on electronics today? How much of your life is devoted to these things? As the author points out, we may all be addicts. Those who don't find addictions in the definitions he gives, may be in denial about something.

After giving me my "Aha" moment about my addictions, the author then seemed to turn his back on me and deal mostly with the serious ones -- gambling, drinking, and drugging. His recommendations are valid, but since my nature is that of a true addict, I don't think I need a group of supporters or likeminded addicts in recovery to help me with my "Kindle" habit. Where would one find such people anyway?

That being said, the book is an eye opener. In that regard, I felt liberated and empowered to help myself with my addiction issues. (She said as she typed furiously on her Apple product).

Buy the book. You won't regret it.
