What Others Are Saying About This Course:
"This book provides specific examples of how to handle an addict who is also a loved one. Many other books are "pep talks", but this book by Dr. Lyn Kelley explains the why behind behaviors, motivates for new behaviors, and gives a play by play handbook of how to free yourself from a variety of sticky situations. This is the layman's book of wisdom from someone whose been there. Your cup will be filled after reading her materials. I'm very thankful to you for sharing."
--Connie Sheehan, BCC
"I am at the point of having a better understanding of what the author speaks about because I have been journeying for a while in the field of psychology and self improvement as well as quite a bit of experience interacting with people. This is very good writing. Nothing is black and white. Yet this book is filled with formulas that I do intend to use to ease my journey called life. I thank the author because I was using a lot of those methods unconsciously now I can be more conscious in their use. One thing is clear though we cannot do it for others since our life is our primary focus. Each must take responsibility for him or herself."
--Bella, Amazon Review
"Thank you for giving me the gift of your words in this book. I COULDN'T PUT it down all week and have gained so many empowering tools that have stayed in my thoughts daily. I RECOMMENDED IT TO A FRIEND. Having read so many books over the years I found this one very relevant and down to earth. You were obviously writing from experience and kept it real and workable. THANKS again. Look forward to reading more."
