If you’re having trouble with relapsing or don’t want to work AA’s program I seriously recommend picking this up. There is so much practical advice about changing your thought patterns, setting goals, visualizing.
Better than both my therapists combined.
I’m really surprised it doesn’t get mentioned more.
I identified that I romanticize alcohol too much and subconsciously haven’t seen myself as a sober person. I also suffer greatly from negative thought patterns.
Every time my mind wanders to booze I think about this book. And I’ve read basically all the books including AA.
