Julie: Thanks for your reply. I found a link to Rational Recovery the other day and have made myself familiar with that. Will get Susan Powter's book as well. I had a copy of Seven Weeks before and bought all of the supplements and did not stick with it. However, the thought processes were not being looked at alongside this. Hopefully this will be the answer. If you are free most evenings to discuss. How do I get in touch? Through healthboards? Thanks again.
: Joan - I feel your pain because I was right where you are. Here are the options that I know about:
: 1. AA with a 7-12% recovery rate and it's associated guilt-shame based ways, not to mention the "meetings until you puke."
: 2. Rational Recovery (they even have a web site). If you don't search much, go to the bookstore and get the book "Rational Recovery."
: 3. Susan Powter's book "Sober... And Staying that Way" along with the book "Seven Weeks to Sobriety" use the rational recover method joined with nutritional therapy. The nutritional therapy is nothing more than getting the sugar, white flour, and of course alcohol, out of your diet. Also, you take vitamins to restore your broken body.
: I choose item 3. It works great for me. I hope this helps.... and I have my evenings free for real social get togethers. ;-)
