I read this book in exchange for honest review from Litfuse. chose this book because my family has dealt with addiction. From drug addiction, pain pill addiction, sex addiction, and alcohol addiction. I personally have dealt with pain pill and sex addiction. I do have an addictive personality--from books to online games to phone apps. I can go overboard until I get bored and move on to something else.

The book provides spiritual support to help someone going through addiction. The book is a 90 day devotional, based on a Christian perspective. The chapters are also short (3 pages long). Each chapter has a bible verse, story, prayer and reflection. The reflection poses a question and has space to respond to the question. One of the first reflections, which stood out was What is the difference between discipline and punishment?(p. 39).

The book teaches people how to deal with the pain, redirect behavior, incorporating accountability, not giving up, and having a good spiritual foundation. Chapter 3, Release your fears, stood out first. The author said she handled fear by bottling it up. I hold it close like a security blanket. It's tattered and worn, but it's comfortable....I learned that fear will eat me alive if if unchecked. Most of what I feared never came to past. (p. 24). This describes me very well. I hold on to things. I bottle things up. I don't want people knowing what's really going on. I don't want to let people in. I don't trust too many people. Sometimes I feel that if I let them in, then they will share my thoughts, issues, and secrets, with everyone else. How would people feel if I was more open and honest? I have things I have been through and thought of that no one still knows about because I don't know how they will react or think or do.

Anyway, the book is a good, great read
