Nine out of ten people who quit drinking relapse at least once. The 2013 Indie Book Awards self-help finalist, “Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud” shows why it’s not just once… without pithy slogans or trademarked solutions. From the author of “What the Early Worm Gets,” a startling book defining Alcoholism, here’s a book explaining how and why relapse happens, how to hold it at bay and why every non-alcoholic should care. Sobriety is a state of illness and its symptoms, left untreated, lead directly to lapse. Addressing the Symptoms of Sobriety is essential.

The narrative dashes along peaks of anger, joy, desperation, relief, and hope interspersed with solid data on the disease and guidance for avoiding relapse traps.
It’s not enough to just stop drinking
