9781781804094: Who Says I'm An Addict: A Book For Anyone Who Is Partial To Food, Sex, Booze Or Drugs

Do you worry that you drink too much? Or perhaps you fear that your dependence on drugs, food, sex, or some other vice is spiralling out of control, and taking your quality of life with it? In Who Says I'm an Addict?, David Smallwood looks at the issue of addiction with compassion, clarity, and wisdom that comes not only from his own difficult journey with addiction, but from his considerable experience overseeing treatment programmes in rehabilitation clinics. David looks in detail at all areas of addiction, from denial, hitting rock bottom, and dealing with shame and guilt, to how our family of origin and the traumas we go through in childhood influence us in later life. He then explores the road to long-term recovery, guiding the reader on how to do the emotional work necessary to ensure that they avoid relapse and can finally lay their demons to rest and get on with re-building their life.

Review:

This offering by David Smallwood contains a wealth of insight, wisdom and help for anyone who wants information about addictions and recovery. I found this book to be a beeezy read as David has been able to simplify a rather complicated subject. Pia Mellody This book provides an excellent overview to the topic of addiction. It's honesty gives the reader true insight into what it is like to have an addiction, and it is through this integrity that it highlights the need for more clinicians and treatment services to combat addiction. -- Kathryn Roberts & Dr. Henrietta Bowden-Jones, National Problem Gambling Clinic, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust
