This book was a tremendous help to me during a very troubling time. I have recommended this book to others who have problems living with an alcoholic. The author is such a love and even took the time to respond to me personally. I still get her newsletters, which helps me to stay on the right track.

I think this book was based on my life. I've heard most of the quotes listed. A great read for the wife of an alcoholic.
