"Recovery from addiction doesn't happen all at once -- it's something that must be practiced, day by day and moment to moment. In good moments -- when things are going well in your life -- your recovery may feel easy, like second nature. But in moments of stress, confusion, temptation, or pain, you need simple, go-to strategies to maintain your healthy recovery. [This book] offers fifty-two in-the-moment mindfulness skills to help you cope with daily stress and stay grounded in your recovery. You'll find powerful advice to help you navigate relationships, take time for self-care, and manage intense emotions that can get in the way of feeling better. Recovering from addiction is hard and sometimes lonely -- and it takes a lot of courage. This gentle, easy-to-use book will guide you as you continue to take steps toward your recovery." -- Back cover.
