Book Description

June 30, 2008 1557767351 978-1557767356 6
This is the basic text of the Narcotics Anonymous fellowship. Just as with alcoholism, there is no 'cure' for narcotic addiction, but recovery is possible through a program adapted from the "Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions" of Alcoholics Anonymous. This book, written by addicts, for addicts, about addicts, sets forth the spiritual principles of Narcotics Anonymous that hundreds of thousands of addicts have used in recovery. Intended as a complete textbook for every addict seeking recovery, "Narcotics Anonymous" describes the N.A. program and how it works. It includes the "N.A. Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions", as well as many personal stories of men and women who have found freedom from addiction through Narcotics Anonymous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical help for anyone with drug use problems July 5, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book offers practical help for anyone struggling with drug use problems. It does not go into the physiological causes of addiction but other books do a good job of reporting on such medical research. Instead it offers practical day to day help as well an introduction to the Narcotics Anonymous 12-Step program. There are a number of stories that tell of ordinary people who found this program to be a lifesaver.

4.0 out of 5 stars NA has finally gone to the digital age September 25, 2012
By jlogan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have long awaited the introduction of our literature in digital form. I love that passages can not only be highlighted, but I can go directly to any passage by simply typing in key words from the passage I'm looking for. It also has a built in dictionary. The only thing I am not happy about that I would like to see changed is that there are no page numbers that match the hard version. Overall, I am glad to have the kindle version of the Basic Text and the It Works, How and Why.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sixth Edition October 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Basic Text was released between my first clean time and this one. It is my bible. I still say they should return to the Third Edition Revised since it was the last one truly Fellowship Conscienced. Ah well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for addicts! November 28, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book helped put me on the path to saving my life and learning to live life without needing substances to numb my emotions. It provides so much more than just "quit using" advice. It helps addicts build a foundation for living and enjoying life without drugs. It includes many stories that every addict can relate to
on some level.

As a bonus, it came in softcover. I do outreach work, bringing NA meetings into jails and other institutions. The jails require softcover literature, so this book was perfect to donate for inmates' use.
