Is someone you love drinking too much? Dealing with a loved one’s alcohol abuse or alcoholism
can be painful and challenging for the whole family, but there is help available.
Witnessing your loved one’s drinking and the deterioration of your relationship can trigger many
distressing emotions, including shame, fear, anger, and self-blame. Your loved one’s addiction
may even be so overwhelming that it seems easier to ignore it and pretend that nothing is wrong.
But in the long run denying it will only bring more harm to you, your loved one with the problem,
and the rest of your family.
It’s not easy to talk to someone about their drinking. You may be worried that if you bring up
your concerns the person will get angry, defensive, lash out, or simply deny that they have a
problem. In fact, these are all common reactions. But that’s not a reason to avoid saying anything.
Your loved one’s drinking isn’t likely to get better on its own; it’s more likely to get worse until
you speak up.
In this empowering book, Lena Holfve will assist you to learn how you can help and be a positive
influence in an alcoholic addict’s journey.
Readers Reviews ?????
"A book I recommend that is about alcoholism and denial, both in the alcoholic and the
relatives is called Bottoms up by Lena Holfve." Carina Bang Co-dependency info
"I have read a book called Bottoms up by Lena Holfve, if you have not read it, I recommend it
to you! It is about saving people from their own responsibility. We take care of things like the
other adult the person should take care of themselves. We protect them from the consequences
of their own abuse. And when we protect them from the consequences of their abuse, we
facilitate the abuse. The Villervalla of Life"
"Bottoms up. A book about living near to alcohol problems. Very good book, a classic that is
now available as an e-book. Needed even more today because we drink twice as much alcohol
as in the 1960s..." Author Sanna Edin
