THE ALCOHOLISM AND ADDICTION CURE: A Holistic Approach to Total Recovery
The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure
Dr. Prentiss gives rock solid evidence to what I have suspected for some time. That what is called alcoholism, is not the dead end that it has been called. But, a horrible symptom of problems which lie much deeper. A very worthwhile read for those involved in any way with addiction. Hope does indeed spring eternal.

Carlo C. DiClemente Phd

How people become addicted; how they recover.
This book, based upon the Prochaska and Norcross model of "stages of change" is a vital resource for the chemical dependency/abuse counselor, or anyone else who works with this population. The authors clearly delineate how a person becomes addicted (using the stages of change model- except in reverse), then moving on to the process of recovery.

For everyone, and probably not entirely what you expect
Drugs, sex, and drinking come immediately to mind when we hear the word addiction, and often times properly so.

Further he helps gain a better ...
7 Tools to Beat Addiction
Three Rivers Press
A great wake-up call
I've binge eaten for decades. This addiction has been an albatross around my neck all my adult life. I quit a 2-pack-a-day smoking habit 25 years ago and quitting smoking was nothing compared to trying to quit binge eating. Bingeing has kept me from living my life fully and has comprised my health. I've spent much of my life feeling like a member of the 'living dead.' I've tried every type of ...

Food Addiction: The Body Knows: Revised & Expanded Edition
Confirms What My Body Has Said for Past 20 Years
I have repeatedly lost weight by cutting out processed foods - especially sweets. Each time I was losing weight by this method I had no cravings. Each time I 'fell off the wagon' by having JUST ONE dessert. For a short time I would 'control' my dessert intake - having one dessert a week - then gradually lose more and more 'control', eat more and more sweets, and regain my weight. Each time I ...

Overcoming Prescription Drug Addiction: A Guide to Coping and Understanding (Addicus Nonfiction Books)
This book is one of the few to discuss all the treatment options to prescription drug addiction. It is brief, illustrated by case examples, and is very readable even for those with limited skills. It does not address any of the more controversial aspects of prescription drug addiction, which limits in its scope.

Treating Pornography Addiction: The Essential Tools for Recovery
Ph.D. Kevin B. Skinner
Excellent starting place
This is one of the best books on the subject and what criticism there is of it is the reuslt of viewing one book as all conclusive. This gets right to the heart of the problem in clearly written prose. It is practical, which many others filled with theory and history of the problem are not. The exercises will help your understand the problem from your own life experience and can give you the ...
