I was clean once before, free from drugs and alcohol. I managed to maintain this state for about three months before the death of my best friend completely totaled my resolve. I managed another two months again this year before I caved in completely after losing my job. I was surprised how much I was able to enjoy bits of sobriety, even though it was tough in certain situations. But it always seemed that life handed me a big fat lemon whenever I was trying my hardest. After reading this book, I realise that no matter what happens in my life, I need to do it sober. The writer hit home some points I had never really thought of before. After getting over the fact the writer is English, not American, which did take a little getting used to, I rate this book 5/5. there are some real gems of wisdom in here. I will be returning to the lessons again and again.

I have been trying to stop drinking for what seems like forever. I finally managed to get the monkey off my back for a few weeks or months at a time - and then I found myself falling into all the old traps again. Only I didn't know they were traps - I thought that was just how it was when you tried to stop drinking. A few steps forward, and then back again, several more. I thought it had to be that way - and was pretty much losing hope. Until I read this book.

Finally, I don't feel alone in this addiction. Finally I understand the lies I have been telling myself. And finally I see the way forward. Thank you so much for writing this book! I know it will still be an effort, but now I have a trusty guide that I can identify with, to hold my hand and keep me from stumbling any more. I have some answers and some solid advice. My eyes have been truly opened. Yours in hope.

Format: Paperback
It's not getting sober that's the problem it's staying sober. My older brother and I must have got sober about 100 times between us. But it never stuck, despite treatment centers, psychologists, clinics and numerous doctor's appointments. After reading this book, it has become clear to me that I really didn't know anything about staying sober. This book made me see a lot of what I have been doing wrong. I'm loaning it to my brother next. And then I'm reading it again and making notes. Getting sober is never going to be a walk in the park - but I have a strong sense that being clued-in to your behaviors and preparing yourself - which is what this book has achieved really well - we both have a much better chance.
