A PAINTING MOM, by Jane Loedding (April 26, 2012)
Having read a few books over the years relating to addiction in adults as well as teens I understand and appreciate that it's very difficult to get clean and stay clean. Plus I've watched several TV shows where the subject matter focused on the addict prior to coming clean. Most of these books and TV shows leave me feeling somewhat disheartened. However, this book was a pleasant surprise for me more so than any I've read or TV show I've watched.
DK'S BOOK REVIEWS (May 6, 2010)
"I have to admit that when I got this book I thought it was just geared for the person that has an addiction but it ended up being so much more for me and I was just a person wanting to learn about it. I honestly have to say I have learned something from every chapter of this book..."
Graceful Chronicle of Interdependent Recovery, October 9, 2009
Robert Boich's "Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting! A Bridge from Addiction to Early Recovery" chronicals the author's decision to stop using drugs and alcohol for his family, and unique way of beginning his recovery: one last solo blast to Amsterdam. Going well beyond the usual therapy-talk and twelve-step substitute for chemical dependence, Boich's book reveals a personal path to interdependent recovery through the love of family, friends, and intensive out patient treatment.
This entertaining little biography shows everyone's ability to mend their own ways, if they can accept a little grace.
SIMPLY STACIE (May 13, 2010)
"The book will give you a more personal insight on things and helpful information; it's not your normal book. It is straight up information that truly will change your life for the better if you allow it to."
CHEW & DIGEST BOOKS (May 7, 2010)
"Robert Boich has written a great introduction to the world of living clean and sober. What many don't realize, is that being sober has very little to do with just not drinking. It is about living and creating a totally different way to deal with life and all it entails with an ever growing set of tools and new outlooks. Boich realized that really early on in his sobriety, bares quite a lot of himself in this book and shares what he has learned."
"I wish that this book had been around when I first got the hint that maybe I needed to stop drinking. Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting! would have been a godsend."
CHRISSY'S WORLD OF BOOKS (May 27, 2010)
"I grew up in an alcoholic home so I really wanted to read this book. I thought this book was going to be just for those with the problem. However I found this is also for anyone who has had to deal with someone with addictions. This book has helped me understand addiction better."
Carol Hoyer, PhD (10/09)
"As a Psychologist and former substance abuse counselor, I have witnessed many attempting recovery from drugs and alcohol."
"Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting! by Robert Boich certainly is a book that I will recommend to my college Psychology students as it gives an honest point of view on recovery."
