Publisher's Summary

For anyone trying to overcome an addiction, living with someone with an addiction, or helping someone with an addiction 

As most drug and alcohol addicts eventually realize, good intentions alone aren’t enough to break destructive habits. However, addiction can be managed once its true nature is understood. This simple yet profound guidebook takes you step-by-step through the process of building a life after addiction by adopting new behaviors that create lasting change. An internationally renowned psychiatrist, neurologist, and addiction specialist, Dr. Walter Ling has worked with thousands of addicts, their loved ones, and fellow clinicians. His no-nonsense, no-judgment approach, which he calls the “neuroscience of common sense”, advocates holistic methods to prevent relapse and establish new patterns to create a sustainable, meaningful life.

story is aimed at addicts that hit the bottom

the explanations of how the brain functions on and off drugs is helpful everything else is pretty much common sense I think people that use and still function in real life are not the ones that should listen to this book this book is more of for the unfortunate people that hit the bottom line
