Emotional Sobriety for Women
Borrow
Written as a resource for emotional healing for women newly sober, this book offers wisdom and a solid foundation for those of us whose recovery journey has also been touched and troubled by the coronavirus pandemic.
Beverly Conyers, a prominent voice in recovery, uses personal stories and informed insight to guide you in achieving emotional sobriety by addressing behaviors and feelings unique to the female recovery experience.

Your old, destructive lifestyle is fading into the past and now you are a woman in recovery. What an amazing gift you've given yourself. So why aren't you happier? As sobriety takes hold and your head starts to clear, a wide range of emotions can begin to emerge—feelings that until now you've "medicated" with chemicals. Yet to stay sober, and to grow and flourish as a person, you must engage in healing and take responsibility for these long-neglected emotions.

Beverly Conyers, a prominent voice in recovery, uses personal stories and informed insight to guide you in achieving emotional sobriety by addressing behaviors and feelings unique to the female experience. Learn how to develop the inner resiliency to face and process difficult, buried emotions—such as shame, grief, fear, and anger—while freeing the positive feelings of self-worth, independence, and integrity. Discover how to heal your "damaged self" by improving your communication skills, expanding your capacity for intimacy and trust, and reawakening a spiritual life. As you heal your wounded heart, you can free yourself to a life of self-acceptance and lay the foundation for a rewarding and relapse-free second stage of recovery.

    November 15, 2013

    These two titles from Hazelden, a well-known publisher of literature dealing with alcohol recovery, provide an expansion of the 12-step program advocated by Alcoholics Anonymous. Berger, a recognized expert in the field of recovery, focuses on the challenges that readers may encounter at steps eight, nine, and ten--the steps that require recovering alcoholics to hold themselves accountable for past actions and current behaviors. The incentives for going through this rather painful process, he points out, are restored trust and increased self-esteem, as well as the ability to recover and maintain integrity and to resolve unfinished business. Conyers (Addict in the Family) also delves into the recovery process, presenting guidelines for the unexpected pain and anger that many experience upon sobriety, as long-buried emotions are no longer medicated away. Both authors make use of case studies to demonstrate how others in recovery have developed inner resiliency. Targeting women in particular, Conyers offers counsel on improving communication skills, expanding the capacity for intimacy and trust, and reawakening one's spiritual life. VERDICT Both books are highly recommended for individuals in recovery, therapists who deal with these issues, and intergroup libraries.
