In Sober ... and Staying That Way, Susan once again shares a practical and proven program: the missing link in the treatment for alcoholism. It clearly and understandably exposes how the government, the hospitality industry, current recovery thinking, and the advertising industry are making sure you don't get the information you need in order to stay sober. It makes the all-important biochemical connection for every suffering alcoholic, giving the simple and biochemical tricks of the sobriety trade ... This book isn't just written for alcoholics. It is written for everyone who wants to participate in the solution to a problem that affects us all. Alcoholism is the number-one killer of young adults in the United States, and the third largest killer in our country. If you are interested in the missing link you must make the connection between alcoholism and disease, understand the biochemistry of alcoholics, make the connection between politics, profit, powerful lobbyists, and your sobriety, wipe out the morality, weakness-of-will, and powerlessness thinking of current recovery programs. You will be able to heal the damage caused by alcoholism, support the biochemical environment for sobriety, balance your glucose-deprived brain, get away forever from the shame-based sober programs and work toward integrating nearly four decades of well-established research with information that is now available to you and those you love for the treatment of the disease of alcoholism.
