Overcoming Your Alcohol, Drug and Recovery Habits by James Desena; Jeffrey A. Schaler
Recognizing that an addiction to 12-step programs can be just as dangerous as an addiction to alcohol or drugs, this book provides techniques to counter the self-defeating beliefs that lead to addiction. It enables those who have gone through Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and formal 12-step addiction treatments to overcome the self-destructive beliefs and attitudes that these programs promote. Theseinclude the idea that addicts and alcoholics are powerless, the belief that addiction is an incurable disease, the assertion that people who slip inevitably lose control, and the notion that those who reject the 12-step approach are doomed. Devoted to helping individuals indoctrinated in 12-step dogma recognize their destructiveness, this book provides effective psychological techniques to vanquish negative thinking and help individuals regain control of their lives.

Overcoming Body Image Problems Including Body Dysmorphic Disorder by Alex Clarke; David Veale; Rob Willson
Many people occasionally suffer from a negative body self - image but, for an increasing number of people, this can turn into a more serious preoccupation. One per cent of the population will develop Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), a condition characterised by severe preoccupation with a perceived physical defect. Body image problems can cause significant distress and can lead to further problems such as anxiety, eating disorders and social phobia. It has long been recognised that negative body image problems are a factor in the onset and maintenance of many eating disorders. However, they can be successfully treated with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Praise for "Overcoming Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" and the "Overcoming" series: ' "Overcoming Obsessive Compulsive Disorder"] is an affordable and highly recommended read.' "The Psychologist" 'The best consumer - friendly CBT - based books...All are very thorough.' "Observer"
