Finally someone has gone straight to the real experts: hundreds of men and women who have resolved a drinking problem. Best-selling author Anne M. Fletcher asked them a simple question: how did you do it? The result is the first completely unbiased guide for problem drinkers, which shatters long-held assumptions about alcohol recovery.

  • Myth #1: AA is the only way to get sober. Reality: More than half of the people Fletcher found recovered without AA.
  • Myth #2: You can't get sober on your own. Reality: Many people got sober by themselves.
  • Myth #3: To get sober, you have to admit you're an alcoholic. Reality: Many people, even some with very serious drinking problems, recovered without calling themselves alcoholics.
  • Myth #4: One drink inevitably leads right back to the bottle. Reality: A small number of people find they can have an occasional drink.
  • Myth #5: There's nothing you can do for someone with a drinking problem until he or she is ready. Reality: Family and friends can make a big difference if they know how to help.

    Weaving together the success stories of ordinary people and the latest scientific research on the subject, Fletcher uncovers a simple truth: no single path to sobriety is right for every individual. There are many ways to get sober, and stay sober. The most comprehensive book on alcohol recovery available, Sober for Good includes motivational strategies from former problem drinkers; suggestions on what to do if you're not ready to quit; advice for family and friends of problem drinkers; a complete Consumer Guide to the many recovery options and how to find what's right for you. Sober for Good is for anyone who has ever struggled not to drink, coped with someone who has a drinking problem, or secretly wondered, Do I drink too much? Download and start listening now!

      " This book shows that people do recover from alcoholism/addiction without the 12 steps. It also shows that some do recover with the 12 steps. It shows both sides. What more could you ask for. "
