Book Review :
Addiction is a disease that often doesn't present itself in a form that onlookers notice; it's often hidden by the addict to a point even the closest friends and family don't know about it. And, at other times the family of the addict cover it up so well that closest friends don't even realize there is a problem. As I read each story in "Tales of Addiction" by Dr. Barbara Sinor I felt the pain, dismay, denial, and hopelessness of each writer. Some stories are just down-right difficult to read and offered much contemplation as I reflected back on my own life and experiences.
Yet, every one of the stories offers hope. We get the distinct guidance that a shift happens in us and we begin to accept the addiction as real and seek recovery. This goes for both - the addict and the family member. Just because we don't have a substance addiction, it doesn't mean we aren't susceptible to enabling, which ends up being an addiction in itself.
Poignant, reflective, and offering the knowing there is hope and recovery, "Tales of Addiction" gives the reader the sense they are not alone. But most of all, the stories reflect compassion and in the end the true identity of each person.
