"If you or someone you care about has an alcohol problem and you are wondering where to turn, read this book." — from the foreword by Frederick B. Glaser, M.D.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: the first completely unbiased guide for problem drinkers, which shatters long-held assumptions about alcohol recovery.[Designer: what follows should be set off in some way, from rest of text and from each other in groups of 2] 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 — 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?"
