Taking a self-help approach, Levy... has produced a fine resource for those willing to take a look at their relationship with the bottle. -- Paul Efthim, PhD New England Psychologist As someone who has been in recovery for many years, i was skeptical of even the thought of trying to take control of my drinking. By using a couple of simple tests, Levy does a great job of walking you through the processes of analyzing whether you have a drinking problem... The book is an easy read and was an enjoyable and informative read for me. This is a great book for anyone in recovery or a person contemplating whether he or she has a drinking issue or not.
