Cool Waterby William Alexander
The key to ongoing freedom from alcoholism or any other kind of addiction is right before us, here and now, in the ordinary and perfect present moment. The problem is that addictions are often the result of our efforts to escape living in the present in the first place. Bill Alexander's unique approach uses mindfulness, story, and meditation to help alcoholics and others learn to come back to the moment and to find healing there.

This book provides the means of Recovery for those turned off by the cult-like mentality of AA. Not attempting to immerse the newly sober in either an all or nothing program, this book offers solutions not explored by AA and similar groups. A suitable companion to established AA literature. An extension and conclusion to the 12 Steps.
This book is undoubtedly the most thought provoking and helpful book I've read in my personal search for sobriety. Whenever I feel weak, I just pick up this book again and it gives me the strength to continue on.
