A practical guide to letting go of the character defects that get in the way of true and joyful recovery.
Resentment. Fear. Self-Pity. Intolerance. Anger. This cast of character defects will undermine the best-laid plans for recovery from addiction. It’s not uncommon for individuals in recovery to hang on to negative, self-defeating behaviors after they’ve given up their addiction. These are the “rocks” that can sink recovery-or, at the least, block further progress. With more than 100,000 copies sold, Drop the Rock is the definitive guide to removing character defects that can prevent gratifying, long-standing recovery. Based on the Twelve Step program, particularly the principles behind Steps Six and Seven, Drop the Rock combines personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help readers move forward in recovery. The second edition features additional stories, a reference section, and information about starting a Drop the Rock study group.
Second Edition features more stories and an even deeper look at Steps 6 and 7, as well as an appendix on how to start a Drop the Rock study group and a reference section.
Bill P.’s Drop the Rock workshops are well attended in the recovery community. Bill is already spreading the word about this book and will continue to do so for a very long time.
Builds on an already popular title as well as the success Hazelden has experienced with titles that build on classics such as Little Red Book and 12 Step Prayer Book.
