   Very helpful book
As with all literary from Al-anon, this book is sympathetic to the dilemma of the codependent spouse, dealing with an alcoholic addict, but provides much more than compassion. It is also very firm in telling us what we need to do to put the focus on taking care of ourselves, no matter what the spouse is doing. The book is a short read that should be referred to again and again, especially by a beginner. It is also a must read for those of us who grew up in alcoholic family systems and have married other addictive and compulsive types, such as crackers, food addicts, ragers, compulsive shoppers, gamblers, sex addicts, etc. This book can be an eye-opener for those who feel that their spouses would not be using or drinking, because the book constantly reinforces that recovery has to start first with us, no matter what our spouses might be doing.
   Skip it. Look to other literature.
I am a 35 year old woman and felt that this book was extremely outdated and had sexist undertones. I could not relate to my experiences or feelings anywhere in the book, and I did not read it, unlike other Alanon resources and literature. I do not recommend this book at all. For support and recovery, look to other literature.
   Take the best. Leave the rest.
A little dated so be open to this. I recommend it. Used in meetings w : title of the book. Provokes has good discussions and support.
After reading this book, I understand why Al-Anon no longer publishes it. It is super obsolete and promotes behaviors and attitudes that Al-Anon no longer encourages or condones.
   Outdated and not evidence-based
This book is based and not in any way outdated, based on the latest scientific evidence-based research on substance use. And it is deeply sexist. I found this more harmful than helpful ''.
   Lots of stories from people dealing with alcoholism
The different perspectives helped me with my alcoholic through a different time. This is highly recommended and attends meetings.
   This book changed my life!
This book is mighty but small. It has changed my perspective completely and I live a much more peaceful life.
