6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer on October 6, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is definitely a book that the addicted and the addicted's loved ones need to have on their bookshelf. It's over 400 pages of life-saving information. As I read it, I thought about my eating habits and my overindulgence of drinking pop. I also thought about my brother's drug habit. I thought about how both of us have overcome our habits, only to go right back to it after several months of `beating it'.

Comparing my addiction to soda pop to my brothers' addiction to drugs seems kind of silly, but there's a correlation between the two. The author provides background information to help the addicted and their loved ones understand why anyone can be pulled into addictions of different kinds.

Also included are steps for overcoming harmful habits and addictions, as well as thorough details about each kind of addictive behavior presented in this book: alcohol and drug abuse, anorexia, bulimia, gambling, overeating and sexual addiction. For example, you'll learn about different drugs, their danger and what to look for in someone who may be abusing them.

How do we know these steps will work? The book is loaded with Scripture supporting the content written. Also, included are real life examples -- some you may even recognize -- of lives almost overtaken by addictions. The key ingredient is one you may be surprised by. However, Scripture and the real life examples are proof of the solution.

***Special thanks to Karri James Marketing Assistant, Harvest House Publishers for sending me a review copy.***

Format: Paperback
This would be a very helpful book for any Christian pastor, councilor. or layperson. The information is written in simple to understand terminology and based on Christian principles. It contains over 400 pages of excellent advice on common addictions, from anorexia to gambling addiction (see product description above). It is also filled with question and answers, and inspiring scriptures. (Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for my free review copy.)
