Banyen's Description: 

This practical and comprehensive volume is ideal for anyone who has just quit or is thinking about quitting alcohol or drugs. The Addiction Workbook starts out by explaining the facts about addiction, why abstinence works better than moderation, how to tell if you’re chemically abusive or dependent, and how to cut through ambivalence or denial to reach a clear decision to quit.

Coverage continues with facts about the actual quitting process, and the book gives critical information on getting help and support from a variety of sources: AA, counsellors, in-patient programs, family, and friends.

The physical aspects of quitting are not neglected. Sections on withdrawal and healing include improving nutrition to repair the damage done by drugs and alcohol, building up to a reasonable exercise program, learning to relax, and learning to express feelings.

Finally, the reader is guided through the process of spiritual and social progress: conducting a searching moral inventory, making amends, and making lifestyle changes to foster long-term relapse prevention.
