There is help Jun 28, 2006
Consider this book if you are in a marriage/deep relationship and you are seeking to learn more about the disease of alcoholism. Perhaps you are in a 12 step program, if so, that is great. Either way, this will help you begin to understand the disease or advance your knowledge. The chapters are organized in a way that are simple and easy to read, skip around.
Getting Them Sober Jun 1, 2005
I have been married to an alcoholic 28 years. My deceased father was an alcoholic and now my 37 yr old son is an alcoholic. After reading numerous books over the years I finally found one that made sense. This book gives practical advice to the person living with an alcoholic. I thank God for the insight provided by Toby Rice Drews! I strongly recommend this book for everyone that has been or will be involved in the life of an alcoholic!

Indespensible Feb 22, 1998
Toby Rice Drews is in a class by herself. She is an absolute sanity saver and a restorer of health and equlibrium. I have been blessed with knowing Toby, and she is in person as she appears in all of her books--warm, gentle, loving, and a true giver. I have given her books to friends and family and they have found them indespensible. One slept at night with her Bible on the pillow next to her and Toby's books on top.
A Life-Saver! Dec 31, 1997
Quite candidly, Toby Rice Drews has made this book an ongoingly useful tool to keep around. Each chapter is independent and helps one deal with the situation/crisis at hand, and yet I found it powerful to read the whole book in two days. I have tools now that truly help me regain control of my life with an alcoholic, both when he is drunk and also when he is moody between his drunken episodes. This author is excellent. I also wish she'd publish a book written for the alcoholic that addresses the psychological wounds he has inflicted on his family and gives him tools to accept what he has done and to change his actions. And please I hope someone does a comparison of all volumes by T.R. Drews. I am anxious to reap all her wonderful help.
