This audiobook is incredible...I'm sober 2.5years and although I have maintained that sobriety something major has been missing....and Veronica Valli has just explained to me CLEARLY what it is...and most importantly, what to do about it. She is utterly inspiring and when you listen to her an alcohol free life is one you want rather than bawk at. She has explained so many things that I've heard in sobriety but couldn't understand or accept, but it in a way that finally makes sense to me. She makes this whole difficult messy topic of addiction SO accessible and easy to understand. To be honest I was blown away by this book...you could hear a pin drop when I was listening to it. It makes SO MUCH SENSE. It helps that voice and accent are a dream to listen to, but it's the genuine enthusiasm and love in it that makes this work so wonderful to listen to. You feel as though she is talking directly to YOU. And actually...she is. I have ordered the paper back because I want to go back and underline so many parts of it so I can refer back to it again and again. And I've also ordered her work book Get Sober Get Free, and I honestly am so excited to start working through it. Veronica Valli has shown me there is a huge light at the end of the tunnel now, authentic living, and I'm heading there without delay.

I've read/heard many books on this topic and I can say that this one is the most complete and effective one, as it covers the whole range of factors that affect dependency on alcohol. I've read/heard books that provide "easy" solutions that really do not last. Unfortunately, to fix alcoholism, there is no single "silver bullet" which was my initial thought when I first encountered this problem. The key is not just on one thing, it's MANY things, and is not a single battle, it's a war. A war in which all fronts must be constantly conditioned: your body, your mind, and your spirit. This book can unlock the key, it did for me.

What made the experience of listening to Why You Drink and How to Stop the most enjoyable?
Veronica absolutely captures the raw emotions and heart wrenching struggles experienced by alcoholics. She weaves a story while educating the reader on the destruction of the disease. I appreciate her honesty, creativity, and her ability to relay a message of both despair and hope!
Any additional comments?
Many thanks Veronica for getting the word out about this disease that effects so many lives and for letting us know that the soul sickness can be stopped! Great Job!!
