Enough Already! is an easy read that educates alcoholics and addicts on precisely what to do to get and stay sober. After learning about the disease of alcoholism/addiction and time-tested tools of recovery, the reader is introduced to relapse prevention strategies, the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12 Step programs, and coping skills to deal with uncomfortable emotions that often lead to drug and alcohol use. This is followed by specific instructions on how to get started in recovery and a final inspiring chapter entitled "The Miracle." Having years of sobriety and experience in the field of chemical dependency, Bob presents the information in this book drawing from personal and professional perspectives. Therefore, the reader learns the principles of sobriety and how to apply them in daily living through Bob's candid self-disclosure - a unique quality of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough Already!: A Guide to Recovery from Alcohol and Drug Addiction Jan. 11 2006
By Joan S. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
As a student in a drug and alcohol counseling program, I have found Mr. Tyler's book to be extremely useful. His explanation of the twelve-step program process is comprehensive and insightful; and I believe it would be invaluable to anyone entering the field who has not yet participated in one of the many 12-step programs out there. I am on my second reading of this book already; and I am sure it will become a major tool for me upon graduation and entry into the substance abuse counseling field. Well done, Mr. Tyler!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primer on AAs 12 steps, relapse prevention and personal experience. April 27 2007
By Matthew Weyuker - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book today. I have been "sober" since 1987 and working in the Recovery Treatment Profession since 1989. This is THE BEST book offering 12 step recovery, personal anecdotes and a thorough but easy to understand explanation of "relapse prevention" on the market! This is a MUST for the library of all persons effected by addictions. Whether you are a seasoned therapist, student, recovering person or a family member, buy two (2) of these wondeful texts. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend, family member or colleague!

5.0 out of 5 stars There is a strong spiritual componet that addicts lack awareness! Jan. 10 2011
By Barbara S. Reeves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most addicts and alcoholics are viewed by society as weak and immoral, and unfortunately, many addicts believe that to be true. Because addiction often leads to immoral behavior, when addicts try to quit, they're seen as bad people trying to get good. But with this belief about themselves, they're almost sure to fail. A better way to look at it is that addicts are sick people trying to get well. That works. And if you want to see how, then you should read "Enough Already" by Bob Tyler.

Tyler accepts the bio-psychosocial model of addiction - a combination of genetic, psychological, and social factors that intertwine and contributes to the development of the disease. He also believes there is a strong spiritual component, that the addict lacks an awareness of the existence of greater meaning in life.

Tyler gives many strategies for relapse prevention, suggestions for working the twelve steps, and tips for finding the right twelve step meeting. The adage that there's strength in numbers applies to recovery. I, by myself, cannot fight my addiction. It's too cunning, baffling, and powerful. After taking one too many butt-kickings, it's now obvious to me. So if I surround myself with other people, whose goal is the same as mine, then together we can beat it. That is the whole premise to the twelve step philosophy - one addict or alcoholic helping another. If I ever stop going to meetings, then I again become lone, defenseless prey for the beast who is always getting stronger.

Tyler himself has been sober since 1988, and in 2007, he became the President of the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors. He draws from his own personal experience with addiction and recovery to present a perfect guide for the addict or alcoholic who wishes to recover.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book you need Dec 15 2010
By April Jimenez - Published on Amazon.com
I am an Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counselor and a full time Group Counselor, I have to say the material is this book has proven invaluable to both me and my clients. I use it in Group and also read it to my Clients on a weekly basis. This book speaks in ways everyone can understand and will prove to you, as it has to me, that there is a way out of addiction for everyone, we all have a chance at recovery as long as we can realize, we've had ENOUGH ALREADY. Thank you Mr. Tyler for your work, from all of us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelation Dec 1 2010
By Christine Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't say enough about this book. I am a student in a Drug & Alcohol course and I know that this book will be priceless in helping clients. The biggest thing was how it opened my eyes to my recovery. I think that sometimes we get complacent and take our recovery for granted. Not only by reading this book do I feel I will be able to reach many people but I took a look at my own recovery and decided to get back involved. Thank you Bob for writing this book and I know that at this time in my life God had me read your book. God bless you and your wife and family.
