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.
Highly recommended. It sidesteps jargon, avoids the medicalisation of addictive behaviour, explodes the lies that maintain addiction and offers realistic, practical solutions.Nursing Standard
