By Earnie Larsen, with Carol Larsen Hegarty
The risk of relapse for alcoholics and other addicts in early recovery is high. Aftercare can help, but many people find such programs incompatible with their work and family life. Serving as a recovery coach, renowned author and lecturer Earnie Larsen brings those countless people an affordable program they can easily integrate into their personal lives…and take with them anywhere they go.
This book is an all-purpose, year-long compendium of recovery wisdom and inspiration to help those who are newly sober focus on practical applications of Twelve Step principles.
Like a traditional aftercare program, it is designed to keep the basics of recovery front and center in one’s consciousness, as it is the loss of this awareness that causes relapse at any point along the way.
Readers who are feeling vulnerable in their sobriety are guided and inspired to move past common stumbling blocks and flourish in their daily lives.
Each of the 52 entries includes a motivational essay, or pep talk, centered on a key element of recovery followed by personal, practical, actionable steps to help readers refocus on the concepts and behaviors that are essential in a recovering person’s life.
