This book should be a MUST READ

There are many imitations to the subject, but there's no replacing the classics. Even though the slang is straight from the 70's, Chaney Allen is one of the most honest and straightforward authors I've ever read. Her wisdom, courage and spirit was felt by this reader. Not only does she give wonderful advice on recovery, but is good for life, period. IMHO, college students should read this book, especially freshmen leaving home for the 1st time.


I'm male, white and sober and Chaney was part of it. I met Chaney in San Diego in the early 70's and she was a very powerful influence to me and many other struggling acoholics.If you're in need of help this book should be a must read.

A must read for all African-American Women beginning anew.

In May, 1989, my sister met this woman, Chaney Allen, and told her that her sister, me, was in a treatment center hoping to recover from the disease of addiction. Ms. Allen autographed a copy of her book, "I'm Black & I'm Sober" and my sister mailed it to me. I read it and marvelled at the the content thereof. I had never read anything so personal and honest. It indeed gave me the identification and courage I needed to believe that I, too, could recover from a disease which wrecked such havoc in my life. I applaud Ms. Chaney Allen for sharing her life with me through the pages of "I'm Black & I'm Sober." As I approach a decade drug/alcohol-free I thank God for using you to give me and many others hope - you see, I passed on your book to those I met.
