SOS Sobriety :
"The Proven Alternative to 12-Step Programes"

as well as the drink industry and AA’s insistence that alcoholism is a behavioural problem. 
Shows the truth that addiction is rooted in physiology and genetics. 
Focuses on the limitations of AA/NA recovery programmes and the success of 
the SOS alternative, which is documented by two scientific studies, 
backed up by interviews with addiction experts and 
legal professionals and separate moving, individual, recovery stories.

Escape from Nicotine County
How to Stop Smoking Painlessly

Although Jim Christopher fervently asserts that alcohol or drug addiction cannot be slowly reduced 
and has to be stopped abruptly, in this new book on nicotine addiction, 
Certified Addictions Specialist, James Christopher explains one possible gradual method 
of quitting cigarettes, which worked for him.
