Getting to No: How to Break a Stubborn Habit (Google eBook)
Everyone is familiar with the cycle: We decide to break a bad habit once and for all. We may even experience some short-term success. Yet almost inevitably, we fall back into that undesirable behavior and the frustrating process starts all over again. The experience can leave us feeling powerless to make changes in our lives.
Popular author and pastor Erwin Lutzer believes it is possible to break the cycle of addictive behavior. Filled with biblical insight, Getting to No: How to Break a Stubborn Habit takes an honest look at the temptations lying beneath the surface of every bad habit. Lutzer examines tough issues—such as why temptation exists, what purpose it serves in our lives, and what happens when we fail again—and provides practical tools that will help you find freedom from bad habits for good.

Unbelievably Great!User Review - Christianbook.com
I absolutely loved this book. I am a simple person and I have been looking for an "Spelled Out, Black and White, No Guessing Game" kind of book that not only will teach me how to break a nasty and awful vice but to also open my eyes, my heart, and my soul to the one and only True God of the universe. I plan on saving my money so I can buy many of this book to give away to those who are needing REAL help. This book is for anyone who are ready to find out and learn the TRUTH! If I could give this book a 10 STARS, I definitely would without a doubt.

This is an outstanding book on dealing with stubborn habits (temptation and sin.) I have always liked Dr, Lutzer because he doesn't attempt to hide the fact that he is human and faces the same temptations and struggles as everyone else. This book is saturated in scripture as he proves his points. He paints a beautiful picture of what the church should be as we support each other, pray specifically for one another and hold one another accountable. Each chapter ends with several thought-provoking questions for personal reflection and/or group study. I plan to re-read it and spend more time meditating on the questions.
