    1. No excuses for remaining a victim of addiction!This book is a pleasant and insightful read. It is ideal for anyone who is struggling with the "GOD TALK" of recovery because it encourages an honest look at ones spiritual nature rather than religious dogma to aid in recovery. This book gives workable "tools" for those seeking an escape from self a destruction which is something we could all use.@WLIngramAuthor
