Inspiring stories from those who encountered life-changing blessings from seemingly unimportant events.

"Why try?" we sometimes ask ourselves when faced with the uncertainties and hard work of recovery. But the answers are all around us, in the rich and spirited lives of those who have made the journey before us, each one a member of the joyful possibilities that await. These possibilities come alive in Gifts of Sobriety, a book that gives immediate meaning to the Big Book's promise: "We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness." In this book, Gifts of Sobriety, those who have freed themselves of alcohol or drug addiction share the gifts that sobriety has given them. Their stories are, in turn, a gift--for those who have made the journey and for those who, just embarking, seek gladdening news of the good life to come

Cole is currently working on two books and completing her doctorate work in psychology.

Review:

"Barbara S. Cole has a beautiful, at times poetic, way of describing the gifts held within the promises of sobriety. This is a book to read when hope and gratitude have been distant friends."
--Craig Nakken, MSW, author, The Addictive Personality

"Living a life of spiritual principles has its rewards, as described in Gifts of Sobriety. Barbara Cole shows readers how to recognize the miracle of recovery as it unfolds in their lives. This book can be a great catalyst for spiritual progress."
--Allen A. Tighe, MS, CCDCR, Hazelden clinical supervisor and author of Stop the Chaos

"Gifts of Sobriety is beautifully written, gentle, profoundly human, and utterly positive. Barbara S. Cole illuminates the journey of recovery as full of hope and promises kept. This is a must read for those in early recovery, their families, and those ready for a deeper understanding of the journey they have begun."
--Patricia A. O'Gorman, PhD, author, Dancing Backwards in High Heels and Parenting and Addiction

"Barbara Cole has given the Twelve Promises found in the Big Book the emphasis that they truly deserve. Her book will serve the newcomer as well as the old-timer with a hefty measure of insight and sustenance. I especially appreciated how she interwove the Twelve Promises with the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous."
--Karen Casey, author, Each Day a New Beginning
