About the Book

So Who Is This Con Anyway? You’ve made the sobriety priority. Now lets get practical. Let’s get real.

Deep within the recesses of your mind lies the inner Con! Your Con specializes in seduction and self-sabotaging behavior. Your negative mind-set that caused your life to go out of control chasing addictions is very crafty. It is exacting, greedy and never satisfied, always wanting more and more alcohol or drugs.

The Con is a group of fear-based characters who hound you until you weaken and give in and go back into those self-destructive behaviors. The Con is made up of the Big Lies that you tell yourself! It is your worst enemy who acts like your best buddy to get you to use.

Cravings happen. Temptations to use again are always there. Get the ammunition you can get to live a life of sobriety.

Catch your Con! Learn to:

  • Identify when you are doing Con talk
  • Break into your negative mind games
  • Interrupt you denial, excuses, justifications, rationalizations, and lying to yourself
  • Talk to yourself in positive ways to keep from going back to your addiction
  • Take control of your life and create a happy future!
