Craving: Why We Can’t Seem to Get Enough
By Dr. Omar Manejwala
April Special price: $12.00
“When we find ourselves wanting something strong enough, we’ll do just about anything to get it – sometimes at the expense of our bodies, brains, bank accounts, and relationships. So why do we sometimes have the irrepressible feeling that we need something—such as food, cigarettes, alcohol, or sex-–that we really just want?”
Dr. Omar Manejwala is a nationally recognized expert on compulsive behaviors who explains the phenomenon of craving and gives us tools to achieve freedom from our seemingly insatiable desires by changing our actions to remap our brains. “A good working definition of ‘craving’ is a strong desire that, if unfulfilled, produces a powerful physical and mental suffering.” (p.2)
Craving is “A SOLID book. It’s filled with good science, which I find both illuminating and reassuring. It’s filled with concrete, positive suggestions for addressing the issues of craving. It’s also compassionate at its core. It’s like, give yourself a break. There are reasons you do this stuff, and it’s not your fault, but it’s not helping you, so here are some good tools that can give you a way out.” – online review (foodfoodbodybody.com).
Available all month long in our 12-step & Recovery Bookstore (located inside our Administration Office in Prescott Valley).
