No social problem today causes greater confusion than addiction. Whatever form it takes - alcohol, heroin, cocaine, nicotine, etc.- it tears apart homes and relationships, destroys careers and futures and leaves loved ones asking: Why couldn't they stop once and for all? Or 'get better'? Or control themselves? Despite everything that's been said and written, many people remain deeply confused about these problems. The addiction-treatment field itself is in a state of civil war because there is no consensus on what addiction is, much less what to do about it. Based on years of hard-won experience by a pre-eminent specialist in addictive behaviour, THINKING SIMPLY ABOUT ADDICTION explains the core truth of addiction: It is not a neurosis, a physical malady, a behavioural choice or, in the narrowest sense, a moral failure. It is an 'automatism', an involuntary, non-stoppable behaviour that once triggered leaves the addict powerless. It is a human problem and a part of human nature. As such, it is something that we all experience. In four to-the-point chapters, THINKING SIMPLY ABOUT ADDICTION rises above the noise level and provides real-world help and new ways of thinking for addicts and those who care for them. Its insights are so profoundly clear and sensible that many readers will be able to say: Finally, someone gets it.
