Unhooked by Susan Shapiro,Frederick Woolverton Book Summary:

Is smoking, alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, the Internet, or sex addiction holding you back from getting what you want most—in work and in love? We’re all addicted to something—but when the crutch gets in the way of living a happy and productive life, it must stop. Over the past twenty-five years, renowned addiction therapist Dr. Frederick Woolverton has used his dynamic, empathetic approach to help thousands of addicts achieve long-term recovery—including himself. He sees the specific habit as less important than the underlying chaos and fear that motivate the urge to sooth ourselves with bad habits. The solution, he has found, requires only a better understanding of yourself and a change in attitude. Unhooked: How To Quit Anything is an intelligent, readable, and actionable guide to conquering any addictive habit. Using real patient examples as well as research and his own experience, Dr. Woolverton and coauthor (and former patient) Susan Shapiro show how to thrive without self-medicating. The approach involves an unorthodox blend of straightforward changes to behavior and open and honest conversation with another person. Woolverton’s specific instructions do not require an expensive therapist, rehab, 12-step program, or a higher power (but he does make readers aware of those viable options). Let him help you kick your addiction and find what’s missing in your world. When you conquer a toxic habit, you are leaving room for something more beautiful to take its place.

Unhooked Generation

Unhooked Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Unhooked Generation by Jillian Straus Book Summary:

"If every man and woman under 40 who is not in a happy, committed relationship reads Jillian Straus's shocking, heartbreaking, and persuasive exploration of love among the Unhooked Generation, far fewer romances will end in tears. This book will give readers the aha! of recognition they have been waiting for. Unmissable." --Naomi Wolf Unhooked Generation is about single men and women in their 20s and 30s who are having unprecedented difficulties finding love. Based on 100 in-depth interviews, Jillian Straus examines the obstacles facing unattached women and men in an age when all the choices we have, somehow, manage to decrease our chances of finding a mate. While cell phones, text messages, e-mail, BlackBerries, speed dating, and internet dating all conspire to create a sense that there are endless options, a culture of "consumer sex" and casual hook-ups make settling down feel like settling. And as the age of first marriage goes up, the level of expectation climbs right along with it, and we start subjecting prospective mates to "the checklist." From the collapse of courtship and the death of romance to the overriding media message that single life is sexy and married life is boring, we have a culture of mixed emotions about the very concept of marriage. Confronted by a host of factors that other generations never considered in their search for love and commitment, the "unhooked generation" faces a potholed road to romance. Rich with compelling personal stories, and leavened with wit and sharp observation, this is a book that clarifies this confusing, compelling issue as no other book has--and in its final chapter offers concrete advice for addressing the problem.

Unhooked! 7 Steps to Emotional Freedom

Unhooked Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Unhooked! 7 Steps to Emotional Freedom by Karen Wells M. Book Summary:

UnHooked! tackles the struggles of self-hate, fear, unhealthy thinking, emotional pain, grief, and unforgiveness. Karen shares 7 practical steps that will help set women free, based on the principles and truths of God's Word. Step 1. Acknowledge Past Experience. The first step is to acknowledge past experience. We often do not recognize the impact of our stories because we haven't stepped out of denial, accepted our full stories and started talking about them. Step 2. Recognize and Feel Feelings. We need to recognize and feel emotions. We're often afraid of our emotions. We're afraid to let them stay with us. We find unhealthy ways to run from them. Feelings aren't good or bad. They just are. Feelings aren't the issue. The issue is how we deal with feelings. Step 3. Name the Loss. When we experience something tragic, or we've done something we regret, we experience loss. Along with the primary loss of the specific experience or choice, there are many secondary losses we might not be aware of, acknowledge, or take time to figure out. As you explore and define these secondary losses, you'll begin to feel unhooked and start experiencing freedom in your life. Step 4. Understand the Grief Cycle. Everyone grieves, whether it involves a small loss or a big loss. As you name the loss, you'll become aware of the grief cycle. Women often feel there's something wrong with them or that they're not handling things well. They can feel as if they're going crazy. Often times, they're experiencing common components of grief. Understanding the grief cycle can help normalize struggles. Grieving isn't the problem. The problem comes when you get stuck in a particular aspect of the grief cycle. Sometimes you move through the grief cycle quickly, and sometimes you creep through it. As we later explore the specifics of the grief cycle, keep in mind that the pace of moving through it isn't as important as the process of moving. We'll also look at what's normal and what's unhealthy in the grief cycle. Step 5. Challenge Your Beliefs. You have beliefs you've brought from your childhood into your present life, even if you think you haven't or aren't aware of what you've brought along. Your childhood experiences are part of your story. Some beliefs are faulty, including the unhealthy ones that continually pull you back into the past. You'll learn how to recognize faulty beliefs, so you can challenge lies and embrace truths. As we dig deeply into Step 5, you'll get specific tools for recognizing truth from lies. The problem is that lies can look truthful, so you can be deceived. The great thing is that John 8:32 promises, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Step 6. Choose To Forgive. Forgiveness is very hard for many people, and we'll address various reasons. You'll identify what reasons best fit you. The forgiveness process is often the area where the most significant changes take place in women's lives. Forgiveness has powerful spiritual and emotional components that can redirect your life. Harboring unforgiveness can destroy you, but forgiveness is amazing. Step 7. Let Go and Live In Today. The final step in Unhooked! 7 Steps To Emotional Freedom is letting go and living in today, not yesterday or tomorrow. You must learn to recognize when you're slipping back into the past and find strategies for living in the present. You can look into your past to learn from it, but it is your present that builds the future.

Addiction

Unhooked Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Addiction by Jon Elster Book Summary:

Addiction focuses on the emergence, nature, and persistence of addictive behavior, as well as the efforts of addicts to overcome their condition. Do addicts act of their own free will, or are they driven by forces beyond their control? Do structured treatment programs offer more hope for recovery? What causes relapses to occur? Recent scholarship has focused attention on the voluntary aspects of addiction, particularly the role played by choice. Addiction draws upon this new research and the investigations of economists, psychiatrists, philosophers, neuropharmacologists, historians, and sociologists to offer an important new approach to our understanding of addictive behavior. The notion that addicts favor present rewards over future gains or penalties echoes throughout the chapters in Addiction. The effect of cultural values and beliefs on addicts, and on those who treat them, is also explored, particularly in chapters by Elster on alcoholism and by Acker on American heroin addicts in the 1920s and 1930s. Essays by Gardner and by Waal and Mørland discuss the neurobiological roots of addiction Among their findings are evidence that addictive drugs also have an important effect on areas of the central nervous system unrelated to euphoria or dysphoria, and that tolerance and withdrawal phenomena vary greatly from drug to drug. The plight of addicts struggling to regain control of their lives receives important consideration in Addiction. Elster, Skog, and O'Donoghue and Rabin look at self-administered therapies ranging from behavioral modifications to cognitive techniques, and discuss conditions under which various treatment strategies work. Drug-based forms of treatment are discussed by Gardner, drawing on work that suggests that parts of the population have low levels of dopamine, inducing a tendency toward sensation-seeking. There are many different explanations for the impulsive, self-destructive behavior that is addiction. By bringing the triple perspective of neurobiology, choice, and culture to bear on the phenomenon, Addiction offers a unique and valuable source of information and debate on a problem of world-wide proportions.

Hooked on Growth

Unhooked Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Hooked on Growth by Douglas E. Booth Book Summary:

Challenging conventional wisdom on the virtues of a consumer economy, this provocative book explores the nexus between growth and environment sustainability. The miracle of the modern affluent economy is an ever-swelling cornucopia of consumer goods, leading to expanding consumption as the essential underpinning of economic growth in more and more parts of the globe. Douglas Booth contends that expansion in this form amounts to an addiction. Are we as a society hooked on economic growth of a kind that carries with it significant threats to the natural environment? A critical dilemma for the modern economy is that growth is required to prevent the pain of unemployment. As growth continues, the environment declines, but if growth slows, unemployment rises. We seem trapped in a spiraling predicament like that of the addict. This accessible work explores whether getting "unhooked" from growth to meet the needs of the environment is possible. Giving the environment priority over growth may seem to some like a radical idea, yet the author argues that it can be accomplished using marketable emissions allowances, transferable development rights, and other tools popular with conventional economists. It can also be achieved by creating more interesting and environmentally friendly urban landscapes less beholden to the automobile. The key problem a less growth-oriented society will face is ensuring that everyone who wants employment can find it. This will require something that many people wish for anyway, a shorter workweek. More leisure, a higher-quality environment, and more attractive cities and towns are the potential rewards of a less consumption-oriented society. Yet powerful economic interests that benefit from a high-growth economy are arrayed against changes in the status quo. Under what circumstances can the power of special interests be overcome in the name of environmental conservation? This is the author's critical final question as he offers a clear path to a sustainable economic and environmental
