Free Through Friday

The eBook versions of these Greenbriar publications are free through Friday, January 13th:

My Plan to Ruin Your Life: 
The first recovery workbook written by your Addiction
In this workbook Addiction explains exactly how he plans to destroy the lives of people who don't take him seriously. For example, he will change his appearance to look like a powdery line of success to the lawyer, a can of solidarity to the mill worker, a fine glass of sophisticated relaxation to the single mom executive, and a big cloud of acceptance to the lonely fourteen year-old.

Addiction himself describes how he plans to use the reader’s strengths and weaknesses against him.  He will convince the arrogant person she is too smart to be addicted, the strong person she need only apply a little more willpower, and the dependent person that finding the right mate will eliminate all her problems. 

My Favorite Character Defects: The next workbook written by your Addiction
Addiction himself best describes this workbook: “Now I’m going to show you how I use your character defects to keep you from Recovery, and hand you over to Death in the worst condition possible.  I left space for you to write your thoughts, plans, and tactics for staying clean and sober." Although the book is written to help people overcome substance abuse, its message can applied to any bad habit.

Forgiveness in Recovery
Written for people new to recovery, this workbook helps the reader develop a realistic outlook on forgiveness. Basic, and sometimes difficult, truths discussed in Forgiveness include:
  • ·         The people we hope will forgive us don’t have to.  They get to set their own criteria for forgiveness.
  • ·         Seeing the other person’s point of view isn’t always easy.  We may not understand their experiences and expectations.
  • ·         Our point of view may not be easy for them to see. They may not understand our experiences and expectations
  • ·         We do well to practice the AA slogan “clean your side of the street.”
  • ·         Forgiveness is a wonderful gift, but one we may have to give judiciously.  We may not want to forgive someone who shows no remorse and continues to do things that hurt us.
  • ·         Part of recovery is learning to forgive ourselves, once we’ve put up ‘roadblocks’ to repeating past behavior.

All three are available through: http://www.amazon.com/Ken-Montrose/e/B001K8MG0S
