Freedom From addiction

The secret behind successful addiction busting

by Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell

Exploding many myths, this book represents a major leap forward in the way we view and treat addictions – the new science-based insights it contains have already helped countless people to overcome a wide range of compulsive behaviours and take back control of their lives.

We are all vulnerable to becoming addicted to any activity or substance that gives us pleasure – but it is Griffin’s new understanding of why this is so that has revealed the best ways to beat addiction.

If you want to overcome your own addictive behaviour – whatever it is – or are interested in helping others to overcome theirs, this down-to-earth, easy-to-read book gives the clear guidance and practical steps you need to do so. And the encouraging case histories, covering all kinds of addictive behaviours, show you how others have successfully stopped the behaviours that were harming them.

Vital new information to help you beat your addiction:

— Why withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful or difficult
— How addiction stops us getting our emotional needs met
— Why addiction is not a biological disease – or something that you have to live with for the rest of your life
— How to make cravings painless and get rid of them permanently
— How to see through the illusions addiction offers us
— Why relapse is not a problem – and how to use what it teaches you to ensure success
— How to enjoy natural ‘highs’ and get more satisfaction out of life as a consequence
— How to protect yourself in the future and avoid switching from one addiction to another.

"An easy-to-read, empowering self-help guide..."

The Psychologist


Customers who bought this also bought

Customers who bought this title also bought the following products:



“An easy-to-read, empowering self-help guide for those considering themselves ‘addicted’ to anything... It breaks down simply the self-assessment needed for discerning problem areas and their development, adding relevant research in a jargon-free manner; with a fascinating explanation for how neurophysiology and ‘pattern-matching’ underpin symptoms like craving.”
The Psychologist

“Following How to Lift this second title is highly recommended. It sidesteps jargon, avoids the medicalisation of addictive behaviour, explodes the lies that maintain addiction and offers realistic, practical solutions.”
Nursing Standard

“So many books promise so much, and then fail to deliver. This book is of an entirely different quality. If you have an addiction/compulsive behaviour, do yourself a big favour, buy it — it gives answers ... a big thank you to the authors.”
Amazon Review

“Full of insights, this book is truly superb, not just in the area of understanding and managing addictions but also in providing a broader, clear, coherent and wholly convincing insight into human thought processes and behaviours. A great book, even if you don’t suffer from, or work professionally with, addictive behaviour.”
Amazon Review

“Here is another excellent book from that groundbreaking team, Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell. This time the focus is on addiction, how it comes about, and a highly effective way of dealing with it — whether it be a life threatening addiction (and many are) or an annoying habit which one would like to be rid of... There are techniques and ways of looking at problems which we can assimilate and pass on to our clients. Freedom from Addiction is easy to read, gives clear guidance and is an ideal book to have to hand to enable you to help yourself, your family, your friends and your clients.”
Ruth Morrozo

“I purchased this book primarily to help me stop smoking. After a
one-day read I applied the principles in it and have not had a cigarette for three weeks. Freedom from Addiction is amazing in that it takes you through the chemical process behind addiction and reveals the tricks the mind plays to trap one into performing addictive behaviours. The advice contained in it for defusing the addictive process and handling cravings is first class. It also contains information on human needs and the tools nature has provided one with to meet them. The authors explore these needs in depth and this explanation of the way things are meant to work makes it easier to see how things go wrong. I fully recommend this book.”
