Publisher Comments:

Many people think that what the addict needs is willpower, but nothing could be further from the truth: When a person has already lost control over a drug or activity, attempts to control its use almost never work. Because the source of addiction isn't the drug or activity itself but a desire for a mood changer, successful recovery means ultimately changing the way we live, giving up the addictive life-style. Willpower's Not Enough will show you how to change your life-style and to recover from your addiction.

Description:

Includes bibliographical (p. 269-272).

I am a psychologist working with men who have addiction disorders. I have used this book time and again (I can't even count the number of copies I end up giving away). It is extremely helpful for many people struggling with this tenacious disease.
I found your website because I was looking for it on the internet to show what it looked like to a client in my office.
