Getting and Giving HelpIn The Tao of Sobriety: Helping You to Recover from Alcohol and Drug Addiction, longtime therapists David Gregson and Jay S. Efran offer a self-help book designed either to work in tandem with 12-step programs or to help addicts get sober without group help. After a brief explanation of Taoism (a Chinese philosophy and religion whose practitioners seek inner peace), the authors present the Tao, a Chinese term meaning "the way," as an ideal vehicle for attaining and maintaining freedom from substance addiction. Replete with anecdotes, exercises (meditations, questions to explore, affirmations) and real-life applications of Taoist precepts (letting go of attachments to guilt and other "self-condemnation" behaviors that lead to substance abuse), this guide uses the firm but gentle approach that is the trademark of many Eastern practices.

I bought this as a gift for a friend, but as someone who has quit drinking in the past year I thought I'd skim through it. There seemed to be a lot of good information in here. Read morePublished on January 29, 2013 by Robyn

This book was alright because it did have some useful advice on living "the middle way", but I was expecting more guidance on recovery and sobriety specifically. Read morePublished on December 9, 2009 by Addict in recovery
