I’m an Army (Nam) Vet. I read the book 1 and 1/2 times. Cindy Turner has written one of the finest books on the subject of drinking problems I have ever read. Not only does she touch base about this SICKNESS, but she puts u right in her clinic, and also makes u feel good about yourself again. Like the trauma GI’S face after a tour in a combat zone, some of us wind up with P.T.S.D., which is a strong cause of “why” one “drinks”. It is to try a way to bury the past, instead of trying to deal with a “TRAUMATIC” event. And I, an X G.I. with PTSD, booze just made it worse.
The therapy that I received, is very much the same as for Alcoholics. The 12 step program, and “Group Brow Beating” is tough and doesn’t get to the real problem, only the drinking part.
I highly recommend she should market her BOOK to the “VETERANS ADMINISTRATION”. Even If the V.A. “Shrinks”, have copies, they might even learn something from an unbiased Writer about the very core of why these “G.I.”s are there.
