To me, it's up there with 'Clean' by David Sheff, except from the viewpoint of someone who's in long term recovery. Whether you're struggling now & need help, have struggled in the past, or you've ever loved an addict, this book pierces through the confusing and terrifying misinformation that surrounds this disease. From the first page to the last, I was completely enthralled by this brilliantly researched, refreshingly straightforward & delightfully compelling book." At last, a book that reveals why alcoholics think, feel and behave the way they do. This book looks into the heart and mind of the alcoholic; it explains their thought processes, how they feel and why they behave so self-destructively. Written by an addictions therapist and recovered alcoholic, it answers the question that every alcoholic and their loved ones have always asked, 'Why do I/they drink this way?'. Veronica understands that recovery is a journey and the steps that need to be taken in order to achieve successful, sustainable sobriety. This book, written in easy to understand language, isn't prescriptive but offers a deep understanding of the vital components that drive an alcoholic - and walks you through the steps you need to take to recover. It is simply a must read for any struggling alcoholic or drug addict, and their loved ones. Live the life you were meant to live. Learn how to mange your feelings to stay away from alcohol.

About the Author

Veronica has worked as a therapist and life coach specialising in addiction for over ten years; her experience includes working with young people in the criminal justice system, primary care adult treatment, outreach services and private practice. Veronica has also worked in local government, delivering local drug and alcohol strategies. As a recovered alcoholic and drug addict, she has personal experience of what it takes to recover from an addiction. Veronica struggled with alcoholism through most of her twenties. As a binge drinker, she was aware for some time that something was wrong but was unable to define what it was; a chance meeting led to her finally getting help and turning her life around. At the height of her addiction, Veronica was unable to go to work without the aid of a drink; her life and confidence were in tatters. She got sober in 2000 at the age of twenty-seven. She now uses this experience to help and inspire others. She fully believes that all alcoholics and addicts can recover if they have access to the right kind of help, and that they can then go on to live life to the full. She is committed to educating and informing the public on problem drinking and addiction and has appeared regularly on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire as a specialist guest. She has also appeared on the Lorraine Kelly show on ITV, and an ITV programme entitled The Truth About Binge Drinking; she has also appeared in national magazines and publications, discussing recovery from alcoholism.
