In his latest book "Just Snap Your Fingers and... Bingo You're Sober!" author Maurice "Mo" Murray, B.A., M.Div., enhances and expands on the spiritual and faith based principles introduced in his first book "God Fixes Cracked Pots!" This Breakout Book empowers substance abusers, especially recovering alcoholics with an extensive guide to overcoming their addiction by tapping into their thought processes and spirituality.
The book is peppered with spiritual and philosophical anecdotes intended to provide positive reinforcement and hope. Murray draws on a lifetime of experience to present relevant stories in the form of thoughtful and sometimes comical anecdotes meant to inspire those in recovery to stay on the healing path.
The following brief unsolicited review by Riki Frahmann [Riki's Reviews] captures the empowering spirit of this short (100 pages) book:
"Completely and utterly amazing, this champion for alcoholic recovery was a trip and a delight to review all at the same time. I fell deeply in love with the author's hopeful and light-hearted approach to such a painful and deadly disease. I found this great workbook filled with everything needed to help those with addictive personalities to find a way out. I liked the personal stories, and the many suggestions the author made available to us, and I do feel that this charismatic charmer will help many. I would recommend it to anyne wanting a more indepth and very straight up approach to this spiritual malady. Thanks, Mo for sharing your ES & H."
"Bingo" is arranged in six chapters: Recovery Your Way (how alcohol works on the mind, accepting responsibility, and understanding the meaning of love as it applies to objects, people, and God,) God Fixes Cracked Pots (relationships between the thought process and attitude,) Swat That Bee on Your Recovery Doorknob (how feelings are connected to our thought processes and behavior, learning to listen, feel, and visualize to achieve a new emotional balance,) Bingo You're Sober (self meditation as a tool for instilling spiritual and mental recovery skills,) and A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to Recovery (Mo's Recovery Humor).
Written from a heartfelt struggle with alcoholism, Murray candidly shares his wisdom on recovering from the disease.
All copies of "Just Snap Your Fingers and... Bingo You're Sober!" are personally signed by the author and contain a complimentary "Bingo Recovery" book marker from Mo.

Recovery your way!
To borrow an expression from Saint Augustine, your "Ordo del Amoris" is changing! That is, your "Order of Loves" is changing! Alcohol or your substance of choice is no longer the love of your life... God, who has been there all along is!
