“And acceptance is the answer to all my problems…” You may already know of Dr. Paul’s wisdom through the often-quoted passage from page 449 of his story in the 3rd of edition of A.A.’s big book, Alcoholics Anonymous.
Dr. Paul continues sharing his astute insight and gentle humor in “There’s More To Quitting Drinking Than Quitting Drinking” with discussions of the physical, mental, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual aspects of sobriety.
“Acceptance,” Dr. Paul writes, “has to be repeated over and over and over again with every new situation and circumstance. It isn’t a destination; it’s a continuous process, a journey, a philosophy, a way of life.”
This book is for the person who has achieved his or her initial goal in a Twelve Step program and now wants more – more of everything the program has to offer, more of everything they can get by expanding their thinking and extending themselves.
