Both "The Easy Way to Stop Drinking" by Allen Carr and "Between Breaths" by Elizabeth Vargas really hit home for me. I really should do so much more reading!

I've been reading this one called My Not So Secret Recovery. I've followed the authors blog for a while and she's just released this book. It's quite new but I'm enjoying it. It makes me feel better to think I'm not the only one in this situation.

I'm currently reading Quit Like A Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol by : Holly Whitaker. She discusses similarities between the tobacco industry and the alcohol industry's approach to marketing so as to increase market share. She looks at how we've become accustomed to drinking ethanol , a product used in paint stripper and fuel; and gender specific marketing to women....pink drinks, " Mommy Juice" etc.

She presents so much information I've often had to reread parts to entirely digest it. There is some bad language

Thanks, Pondy. I've heard a lot about that book but haven't read it yet. I added it to the list.

Not sure if I overlooked this one anywhere in the thread, but Alcohol Lied to Me by Craig Beck has sure helped me.

In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts

Author(s):
Mate, Dr Gabor

'To heal addiction, you have to go back to the start... Featured on Russell Brand's podcast Under the Skin Dr Gabor Mate is one of the world's most revered thinkers on the psychology of addiction.'

This book changed my way of thinking about addiction and made me question how society deals with addicts. GB is a truly revolutionary thinker and with every chapter youre left thinking how obvious his observations and suggestions are and as with any genius, you think why haven't I thought about this before?

The book I'm reading now is by the same author of The Daily Stoic, Ryan Holiday. It's called The Obstacle is the Way. It's not specifically about recovery but about turning challenges into opportunity. I highly recommend it.

Why 15?

Why do you have to have 15 posts before messaging someone?

The reason for that is cut back on spammers, on people who join and post to just post spam. We try to discourage them.
