Overview

When we begin our lives over without drugs we begin a journey across an unfamiliar and sometimes frightening landscape - a drug and alcohol free landscape. Therefore we must learn new survival skills. Feelings and problems that were once masked by drugs and alcohol need to be faced and dealt with effectively.
In this basic survival guide, Dr. Scott Sheperd leads the newly recovering through the perils of:

the desert of low self-esteem

the swamp of boredom

the cold wind of loneliness

the smoldering heat of resentment

the mountains of depression

The stakes are high - the quality of your life and the lives of the people around you, and your life itself. High self-esteem, positive action, trust in others, forgiveness and joy are gifts which we give ourselves and which keep recovery on course.
