The Alcoholic Relationship Survival Guide has been helping people resolve alcoholic relationships since 2001, and is no ordinary alcoholic relationship book. It is a powerful and comprehensive resource that explains the dynamics of an alcoholic relationship from the perspective by people who have been though it successfully. It explains the why's and how's of your situation in an easy-to-understand-but-no-holds-barred style that will encourage you, comfort you, anger you, and then help you to resolve your difficult situation in the most healthy and beneficial way possible. The Alcoholic Relationship Survival Guide will teach you healthy and effective ways to respond to alcoholic dysfunction and verbal abuse. It will show you pitfalls to avoid and solutions that work, including how to set healthy boundaries and reinvent yourself into a "New You." After reading this book you will not only understand your situation much more clearly, but you will also know what steps to take next. This book applies to any form of substance abuse that is causing relationship problems.
