"Speaking to all American Indians about the challenges and rewards of living sober, this book blends Ojibwe and Twelve Step spiritual principles and practices. Whatever our culture, we can apply the traditional virtues of honesty, sharing, kindness, and strength to our lives. By relying on the Creator, Elders' wisdom, and sober community support, we find hope. Each week offers a meditation, seven daily prayers, and real stories 'from the rooms' of Alcoholics Anonymous."--Back cover.

"A social history of alcoholism in the United States, from the seventeenth century to the present day Today, millions of Americans are struggling with alcoholism, but millions are also in long-term recovery. Alcoholics Anonymous and a growing number of recovery organizations are providing support for alcoholics who will face the danger of relapse for the rest of their lives. We have finally come to understand alcoholism as a treatable illness, rather than a moral failure. Today's advocates can draw inspiration from the victories of sober drunks throughout American history. Christopher Finan recounts the nation's history with alcohol and its search for sobriety, which began among Native Americans in the colonial period, when liquor was used to cheat them of their property. He introduces us to the first of a colorful cast of characters, a remarkable Iroquois leader named Handsome Lake, who dedicated his life to helping his people renounce hard liquor. And we meet Carrie Nation, the wife of an alcoholic who destroyed bars with an ax in her anger over what alcohol had done to her family, as well as the idealistic and energetic Washingtonians, reformed drunks who led the first national movement to save men like themselves. Finan also tells the dramatic story of Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, the two drunks who helped each other stay sober and then created AA, which survived its tumultuous early years and has made it possible for millions of men and women to quit drinking. This is narrative history at its best: entertaining and authoritative, an important portrait of one of America's great liberation movements"--

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol. Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery. This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie's own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks. This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for. "You have given me my live back." --Katy F., Albuquerque, New Mexico "This is an inspiring and groundbreaking must-read. I am forever inspired and changed." --Kate S., Los Angeles, California "The most selfless and amazing book that I have ever read." --Bernie M., Dublin, Ireland

Religion was once the primary way to understand human behavior. That was certainly true when the book Alcoholics Anonymous was written in 1939. Be we have learned much over the past 75 years. The author of Common Sense Recovery: An Atheist's Guide to Alcoholics Anonymous describes in a gentle and enriching fashion how the key ingredients of recovery are better understood today via science and secularism. The book takes a close look at the 12 Steps and how and why they can be of help to the suffering alcoholic, and it does this from a modern, uplifting and secular perspective. This remarkable book is long overdue and contains important insights for the future of the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.
