Publisher's Summary

Are you feeling exasperated and helpless about your family member's addiction? Are you at your wit's end, having tried everything you can think of to make them stop? Whether the addict in your life is your spouse, partner, parent, child, friend, or colleague, the key to changing this reality for yourself lies in shifting your focus from your loved one's addiction to your own self-care.

This book presents a dramatically fresh approach to help you get off the roller-coaster chaos of addiction, maintain your own sanity and serenity, and live your best life.

Similar to something found in a women's magazine

Heavily anecdotal with the obvious shallow recommendations. No new information to be found within this book.

Great for professionals and self help

I loved this book! As a professional in the mental health and addiction field sometimes it can be hard to find literature for continuing education and to recommend to patients. This is a great book for both professionals and individuals seeking self help.

Helpful

Very helpful book and good advice if you're ready to take it. A lot of things I already knew but hearing it sometimes helps it sink in more.

Very empowering! A must-read if you love an addict

This book is just what I needed. My husband is 3 years into his recovery and we've hit a fork in the road with how do we move forward. "If nothing changes, nothing changes", right? Even before I met him, I was the classic enabler and people-pleaser. I've really worked on myself but this book really gave me the practical tools to re-focus back on myself as well as face my own reality.
