First Steps out of Problem Drinking


First Steps


Have you ever wondered at what stage drinking becomes a problem? Whether you’ve just asked the question for the first time or it’s an issue with which you have been struggling for some time, this book will help.

Unlike many books that take a clinical approach, First Steps out of Problem Drinking is written by an empathetic expert who was once dependent on alcohol himself. He explores the way alcohol works-how it affects your brain, your body, and your life-and what you can do to take steps towards a happier, healthier future.

I recommend this and ‘Bottled up’. This is the companion to ‘bottled up’ which is excellent. there is a web site for each. They have a coherent explanation of understanding the nature of the problem and taking a positive path to improve the situation.

Having read this book I then used it to help support and signpost a colleague with a serious drink problem. I persuaded our organisation to order a quantity of books which we now loan to any staff interested in helping themselves (or others) to overcome their drink problems.

The various website resources are very useful too.
