REVIEW for Getting Sober

A thank you goes out to author Kelly Madigan Erlandson for sending this wonderful book to me.

TITLE: Getting Sober
AUTHOR: Kelly Madigan Erlandson
GENRE: Self-Help

RATING: 4 Stars
Getting Sober is one of the best, down to the nitty gritty books, I have read on alcoholism. Finding sobriety is scary and baffling for many and reading a book such as Getting Sober will make the understanding of the process easier.
What I liked most about this book is that it does NOT talk down to anyone. Rather, it takes an honest look at what sobriety really is and then helps guide the reader towards the first 30 days of sobriety. It takes a detailed look at AA and manages to remove some of the "mystery" and "stigma" that sometimes can be associated with the program. It also gives some wonderful tips on how to deal with emotions, fears and judgment that may come.
Getting Sober is a compassionate and inspiring road map for all those on the road to sobriety, especially those who might feel extremely shaky or scared.
By the way, Getting Sober is also excellent for those who are already in recovery - it always helps to remember what those first 30 days were like! Buy this book

Ok do you want to know something funny, I'm a Virgo too! I think my books used to be more organized when I had enough room LOL! I'm definitely messy when it comes my desk and etc but I think I have the organized mind of a Virgo if that makes any sense? Haha! Oh and for the most part my DVDs are in alphabetical order!
