Product description


“The author lucidly explains the neurological changes that occur when cravings give way to addiction, and he offers practical ways to deal with and resist temptation…”
--Publishers Weekly

“A SOLID book. It’s filled with good science, which I find both illuminating and reassuring. It’s filled with concrete, positive suggestions for addressing the issues of craving. It’s also compassionate at its core. It’s like, Give yourself a break. There are reasons you do this stuff, and it’s not your fault, but it’s not helping you, so here are some good tools that can give you a way out.”

“This book will help addiction professionals be better able to explain cravings and addiction to patients. Anyone who has ever tried to squelch a craving--unsuccessfully--by willpower alone will be interested in this book.”
--Jana Burson, MD, Board Certified in Addiction Medicine and Internal Medicine; Medical Director, Stepping Stone of Boone; author, Pain Pill Addiction: a Prescription for Hope

"This compassionate book is highly recommended for anyone struggling with cravings or addictions of any type, as a first step on the road to recovery."
--San Francisco Book Review

“Inspiring, practical, and insightful for individuals considering or participating in a recovery program.”
--Library Journal
