Loving the Alcoholic in Your Life: Changing Your Behavior to Positively Change the Alcoholic's Behavior | [Antoinette Kinsmen]

Loving the Alcoholic in Your Life: Changing Your Behavior to Positively Change the Alcoholic's Behavior

Your loved one begins drinking to the point of no return once again. A fight ensues, words are exchanged and it is another miserable episode of nagging and pleading and promises to refrain from ever returning to this point. Does this sound familiar? If this is the picture that represents your life, then it is time to enact an alternative to the repeated efforts of trying to make him or her quit this behavior. What if it were possible to alter your reaction to your loved one's drinking?

Publisher's Summary

Your loved one begins drinking to the point of no return once again. A fight ensues, words are exchanged and it is another miserable episode of nagging and pleading and promises to refrain from ever returning to this point. Does this sound familiar? If this is the picture that represents your life, then it is time to enact an alternative to the repeated efforts of trying to make him or her quit this behavior.

What if it were possible to alter your reaction to your loved one's drinking? Thus, by doing so, you made it a more positive experience to skip the drinking altogether? That being said, the final outcome could be no drink, no complaining, no ensuing arguments and the quality of life could be far greater. In addition, your loved one could take a step towards a sober life.

    "Mixed feelings"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I'd wager there are better and more supportive references out there.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been trying to take the grains of information planted in this book. I kept having to pause and take breaks because I felt myself getting filled with anxiety - wanting to argue with some of the opinions. This book isn't the law on dealing with an alcoholic. A lot of the information was frustrating to listen to. What I did like was the chapter about adjusting how I felt and acting as I wanted to feel - the actions led the feelings and gave the drinker less of a reason to jump down a bottle. That was insightful and helpful. I've spent my time trying to cheer myself up, and in turn that has caused my situation to become lighter and more tolerable.
