‘Mindfulness is an integral part of my recovery for which I am externally grateful’
‘It’s a real understanding of the perilous challenges facing an addict, that shines through in Catherine G. Lucas’ new book Alcohol Recovery: The Mindful Way.’
Steve Toppel, The Canary.
Descended from a long line of alcoholics, and close to becoming one herself, Catherine G. Lucas knows only too well the devastating impact that alcohol and its abuse can have on our lives and our relationships. Sharing her story, along with the story of others who have had similar experiences, Catherine shows how mindfulness helped her to overcome her demons and bring self-compassion and self-nurture to her life.
As well as addressing the roots of problem drinking; difficult emotions; coping with depression, shame and alienation; and why we need self-compassion, Lucas offers guided introductory, classic and tailor-made recovery practices, along with links to audio downloads that can be done at any time of day. A qualified mindfulness teacher since 2007, Lucas shows how it is possible to let go of the pain and make a healthy recovery.
