Don’t Believe Everything You Think!
Inexplicable logic is normal fare in addict land. Friends and family are baffled by the behaviors, antics, and thinking of the addicted one. Their patience, tolerance, and love are depleted quickly. Eventually their empathy and compassion exhausted, they say the inevitable, “He will just have to hit bottom,” as they shake their heads and walk away.
The tool of self-destruction so effectively wielded by the addict is his own mind. The addict takes a perfectly good brain and, by relying on thinking errors, rationalization, justification, and every known form of denial, creates an addict where a person used to be.
“Reclaiming Your Addicted Brain” reviews the return journey from addict land, the learning of how to leave our thinking errors behind. Written around the recovery story of one man from alcohol and sex addiction, clinical notes and comments appear throughout the story helping the reader to understand this baffling disease. Addicts report being able to see their own behaviors that were previously hidden from them, when they are manifest in someone else. Reading George’s (the book’s addicted character) story and mis-adventures creates ‘aha’ moments of understanding that can open the doors to recovery.
This is definitely a “How To” book. Written in the informative Addict/Clinician style, George presents his “legs of a stool” analogy that eloquently describe the needed steps to recovery. The clinician’s voice adds step by step directions on how to gain the key ‘Skills of Recovery.” Come on in and look around, read a few pages, look at our growing list of reviews and order up some help from the “order here” page.
