Summary

Feeling as you are at war with yourself? Feeling as your thoughts and your emotions are drowning you and you have no strength to fight, but you are ready to fight back, and you are ready to take that first step and turn your life around? 

Struggling with alcohol or drug addiction does not mean you are a bad person, that you do not have enough willpower or strength to quit; it means you were unfortunate to step into that extremely vicious cycle that in order to be broken requires you to have a lifelong commitment, which does not come easy. Struggling with an addition in many ways is extremely difficult with the different challenges and obstacles addicts come across. However, since you are here, you have already made the most important step, which is wanting to change your life for the better.

Struggling with maintaining your personal relationships and to keep your mood and energy up? Struggling financially and seeing not a single way out? This is what addiction can do to a man; it simply destroys everything you love and about which you care. There is no magical pill that can make things better, but there is only you, your strength, and your commitment to make a change. This audiobook helps on that journey, providing valuable tools and strategies that when embraced will lead you toward your road to recovery.

Inside, you will discover:

  • What addiction is and the main symptoms of addiction
  • How mental health and addiction are related
  • What the main causes of addiction are
  • What substance abuse disorders and alcohol use disorders are
  • How alcohol and drugs negatively affect both physical and mental health

exercising book

Recovery isn't as simple as exercising enough willpower. People do not choose to become addicted any more than they choose to have cancer. Genetics makes up about half the risk of addiction; environmental factors such as family life, upbringing and peer influences make up the other half.

necessary to motivated book
