First Steps Out of Problem Drinking
'In First Steps out of Problem Drinking, John McMahon draws on extensive experience, both professionally as a university lecturer in substance abuse, and personally as a former alcoholic. He explains what makes drinking 'a problem', how this can affect your life and your health, and how you can change things for the better.'

'Hazardous drinking' in the UK is widespread: 1 in 4 according to a recent government survey. More severe 'alcohol dependence' affects nearly 6% of the UK population - that's 1.8 million people. But for each alcoholic there is usually a family - estimates suggest that at least 3 people per alcohol abuser suffer on this account. The loved ones of alcohol abusers are a neglected group, and this book is aimed at equipping them to care for themselves so that they can survive the difficulty before them. Written by a husband-and-wife team of an alcohol abuse expert and former alcoholic (John) and a former carer for an alcoholic (Lou), this helpful book is not only academically sound but also written with an empathy that flows from experience.'
