This book is a great resource for anyone who has struggled with a long-term HABIT, which is/has created alot of grief and frustration. The author makes several suggestions on what a person should do in order to break the chains which entangle a person addicted to "_______" fill in the blank; drugs, food, a person,etc.
I have found it to be very helpful thus far although I have not completed the book as of yet. I must add, that the author's advice and wisdom, is Christian-based. He (author)emphasizes using scripture, prayers, and turning to other believers who can support the addicted person, break free from bondage. Thus, if you aren't a believer in Jesus, and God, you will find it very difficult to relate to this book.
I will add, that I participated in a 12 step program for over 13 years, yet didn't experience full freedom, hence why I purchased the book. For me, the book's suggestions is what is making the difference. With God all things are possible, and HE wants us free from bondage, once and for all. I knew that I still had more work to do, to break completely from my addiction, and with God on my side, the rest is history!
