Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestselling author of Symptoms of Withdrawal and Moments of Clarity Christopher Kennedy Lawford comes a book that will save lives.

For most of his early life, Christopher Kennedy Lawford battled life-threatening drug and alcohol addictions. Now in recovery for more than 25 years, he works to effect change and raise global awareness of addiction in nonprofit, private, and government circles, serving as the goodwill ambassador for drug dependence treatment and care for the United Nations.

For the first time, Recover to Live brings together all of the most effective self-care treatments for the seven most toxic compulsions affecting every culture on the planet today - alcohol dependence, drug dependence, eating disorders, gambling, hoarding, smoking, sex, and porn. In Recover to Live, more than 100 of the world’s top experts interviewed by Lawford share their research and wisdom on how to determine if your bad habit is becoming a dependency, what treatments will work best for you, how best to help yourself or a loved one recover from addiction, and how to lead a fulfilling and productive life in recovery.

    Story
    "Fascinating and Informative"
    What made the experience of listening to Recover to Live the most enjoyable?

    The topic, the fact that he used experts from different fields (and opinions).


    Would you be willing to try another one of Seth Michael Donsky’s performances?

    No--that was the worst part of the book for me. There was something about his voice and the way he spoke that distracted me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I recommended it to people because of the way he covered the various addictions.

    "I didn't know I was a workaholic"
    Any additional comments?

    This helped reinforce what I already knew about addiction and taught me a lot about why people get addicted to different substances. I have a problem with Alcohol. One of the reasons is that I'm a workaholic. I really didn't know that about myself, but there was a chapter toward the end that described me when I didn't expect to find that part of me in the book. I've been using alcohol to 'relax' and to forget about the ongoing self-imposed pressures of the job. Wow, no one talks about that in AA. Now I know that I have to work on my 'work' addiction, it's helped with the alcohol problem. It's helped me to figure out how to relax a little. This was helpful.

    The author has had a very interesting life and he drops parts of his life's story into the book. That was very cool and very well done. Addiction can be something clinical, but it's also very personal to everyone who addiction touches. It helps when the help comes from someone who's actually been there.
