Lifelong Sobriety



Many people tend to ignore their emotional health. We all should have the chance to reach our full potential. Having the right mindset is important.
I have worked as a drug and alcohol counselor for over 25 years. Reaching out for support is not easy. My patients made me realize that there needs to be an addiction recovery book that offers straight talk in plain sensible language.   The kind of simple advice a recovering drug addict might encounter in a recovery group. No academic jargon that would confuse an individual seeking help or family member. I decided to write such a book.
Lifelong Sobriety is the first recovery book that emphasizes the importance of taking care of one’s emotional health. The thirty-four chapters contain the kind of simple advice a recovering drug addict might encounter in a recovery group. The book has real-life experiences of dozens of recovering addicts. Readers will not only learn from these experiences but can benefit from the success stories of many of these individuals.

Lifelong Sobriety covers various topics: depression, stress, anxiety, loneliness, impulsivity, impatience, anger, pro-crastination, negative attitudes, self-centredness, low self-esteem and more.
Most people know the importance of taking care of their physical health, but there are many who don’t know how to take care of their emotional health.
They tend to ignore it until they are overwhelmed. Your physical and emotional health are interconnected; if you continue to ignore your emotional health, it will affect your physical health and vice versa.
Individuals who suffer from addiction need encouragement and proper guidance to make well informed decisions to sustain long term sobriety. Life is all about balance and choices. This book helps them find the answers that they need.

  1. My oldest sister was a psychologist and I know how much counseling someone can help them. When she passed, so many of her former patients let us, her family and friends, know how much she helped them and was a Blessing to them.
