This book was the next logical step in the pursuit of long term recovery and the work necessary for the individuals seeking a deeper understanding of alcoholism and it's relation to daily living once sobriety is underway. Dr Paul O. sights many additioinal resources that the reader may find helpful and enlightening for their own personal journey. Many of us will realize in a very short period of time that there IS more to quitting drinking than just the physical aspects of being sober or not taking that next drink. You will find that here.

A Must read

This book clearly explains the sickness of alchoholism and how to deal with someone who suffers from this disease. It assisted me in making some very important decisions and changes in my life.

Best book for recovery not written by Bill W.!

Outstanding recovery book. Definitely deserving of a second and third read, every other year or so. Really helped me becasue I could relate, especially in the "family" aspect. Buy another copy to give away because your copy will be full of highlights! Tim A., Midland MI

There's More to Quitting Drinking Than Quitting Drinking

Dr. Paul probably had more information on alcoholism and drug addiction than anyone on the planet, including the founders of AA. His information on the 12 Steps, a Higher Power and the phases he went through are more than helpful to people having a difficult time identifying their problems. I recommend this book to anyone not only having an addiction or drinking problem, but also anyone knowing or caring for someone with same.

A Treasure Trove of Gems!

This is a "must read" book for couples in recovery. In fact, despite the title, any couple can benefit from the wisdom contained in its pages. Dr. Paul, as many know, authored the original "Page 449" sentiments found in the third edition of "Alcoholics Anonymous" (also known as the "Big Book" of A.A.). In this book he expands his thoughts and intentions to cover the way he and his wife of 55 years incorporated the principles and traditions of the A.A. way of life into their relationship.This is a book that must be sampled a paragraph at a time; written in such a way that significant topics are brought up in a "plain speaking" way, this is a terrific book to be used as a "study guide." Couples can each read a paragraph and then discuss the ideas and concepts contained in the reading.The chapters devoted to emotional sobriety and interpersonal communication are alone worth the price of the book. Dr. Paul's writing style is simple, straight-forward and utterly human. He uses his own experiences to describe the many pitfalls and missteps on the way to determining the best methods for developing strong, mutually beneficial relationships.The title of the book is itself, loaded with meaning. But even if your life hasn't been affected by addiction (and recovery), this little book can make a tremendous difference in how you (and your significant other) relate to the rest of the world and each other.
