I first learned of this book within my first year of sobriety. I was living in a halfway house and there was a group meeting every week there that centered around the 'Living Sober' book - we read a different chapter each week and discussed how we could apply the suggestions to our daily lives. It is a simple book that relays practical tips on staying sober. I don't have the book anymore but I know it helped me so much esp. in beginning and first four years. I now have 24+ years of continuous sobriety... I think applying the suggestions helped me learn to handle situations sober esp. when situations where others are drinking alcohol.

This book is a must have for anyone who is newly sober. It explains AA and offers many practical suggestions for situations that may compromise sobriety.

A simplistic, possibly too much so, quick & easy read on living sober. It gives a lot of good advice, is broken up logically & often. Probably a good book for many to start with & it really isn't limited to alcoholics. I think anyone who has an addiction or even issues in their life could get a lot out of it.

This is a primer for basics living without alcohol in your life and put together by committee. No committee work has, does, or will obtain a five star rating (no. hot even the king james version of the Bible). But as an instruction manual on how to handle various topics pertinent to sobriety, it is a winner. Especially the advice about carrying around a ginger ale at parties and keeping sugar in your body to replace the full cup of sugar myou poured down your throat while drinking.

Great tips for great back to the business of living following alcoholism and recovery. Great to keep on hand for anyone feeling a little "shaky" (who doesn't want to drink any longer of course...)

This book is a life saver for anyone in early sobriety. During this time, life is confusing, uncertain, hopeless, and trying to live without taking a drink - or 20 - is all but impossible, as well as unimaginable. This book has simple, short suggestions on how to get through many of the early sober life issues, events, fears, and answers questions most alcoholics have upon trying to get sober. What should I do if I am invited to go out for happy hour with my office mates? Why can't I sleep? How do I get through the holidays? I am craving sugar. I am afraid to talk to people. These and many other common concerns are addressed in a plain, useful manner and suggestions are offered as to options to these problems. This book is invaluable to anyone who wants to get sober or is in early sobriety.

A practical guide with specific suggestions you can actually use in everyday life to help get through those early, shakey days of sobriety. While the AA Big Book undoubtedly has its place in maintaining and deepening one's long-term sobriety and quality of life, it is a moot point if one can not get sober and stay sober in the first place. It is not an exageration to say this book is a life-saver.
