Addiction and Hope
Sobriety was the greatest gift I ever gave myself. Rob Lowe
After working in the mental health and addiction system for over thirty years, always with the question of how to facilitate change, I have come to believe that the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program is one of the most effective methods to achieve behavioural change. Still Standing: Inspiration From People with Long-Term Abstinence from Alcohol and Drugs attempts to identify factors that lead to long-term abstinence. A combination of research and interviews was used to compile this volume. The stories tell what it was like for individuals prior to entry into Alcoholics Anonymous, and what they felt contributed to their achievement of long-term sobriety. These stories are inspiring and demonstrate that it is possible to have a different lifestyle.
I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to feel like that anymore or ever again. So I changed. Anonymous
