This review is from: I Need To Stop Drinking! (Kindle Edition)
Somewhere in this book there is a summary entitled "Reasons for stopping drinking". This summary is a recipe for a life well lived. The book tells the reader the author's journey through hell and back, through hell again and back again - many times - until she finally managed to arrive at a point where her real life started, her life well lived, where she can experience joy, freedom and happiness.
This is an extraordinarily important book. It should be compulsory reading for all alcoholics, which of course is wishful thinking. Besides, until alcoholics have reached a certain point, nothing can make them accept the need for change. But I am only uttering words. And that's the true strength of this book, it is not just a book comprising words and sentences: this book conveys emotions - enormously painful emotions, but also emotions that create understanding and can lead to healing. This book is not only important for alcoholics, it is equally important for everybody who want to understand the world and the suffering of people who just can't live without drinking. Reading this book is a must for the loved ones of alcoholics, for their friends, relatives and workmates.
