Chasing Serenity: Married with Alcohol (Hardcover)
There is hope. It does get better. Living with an alcoholic spouse is perhaps the most difficult challenge any marriage partner can face. Louis Pretlow shares his firsthand experience with an honest, poignant style. Never boring, his notes tell about "Newbies, Monsters and Grandkids"; "Pet Store Theology"; and "Sober Insanity". There is a full chapter of his witty and thought-provoking parables of recovery. In this book Louis describes his first year of recovery in Al-Anon, a 12-step program for the family and friends of alcoholics. His notes share the pain, disappointments, and injustice he experienced in the first year of recovery. They also record the discovery, insight, and wonder Louis found learning how to watch for miracles. Louis defines "Al-Anon's Disease". If you too are chasing serenity this book is for you.
