Summary
  • "Those in recovery learn to "rein in their brain," ending compulsive behaviors while fostering a more thoughtful lifestyle that ensures long term emotional sobriety. Addiction--whether to mood-altering substances, gambling, sex, or food-- stems in part from an over-reliance on the reward system of a primitive part of the brain that can push us to make poor choices based on an expectation of immediate gratification. Those of us in recovery often struggle with the compulsive thoughts and behaviors that are still programmed in our addictive brains well after the drinking and drugging has stopped. These often play out thoughtlessly in our interactions with others, damaging our relationships and growth as balanced human beings. Rein in Your Brain, by addiction expert Cynthia Moreno Tuohy, offers ten tools for breaking the cycle of impulsivity. These time-tested self-interventions include standing still in the moment, giving up control, not assuming the other person's intent, tolerating differences, accepting emotions without giving them free reign, and differentiating between immediate fear-driven reactions and measured thoughts. By incorporating these tools in your daily interactions, your relationships can move from those of conflict to mutual respect and understanding. "--
  • "Written for people in recovery from substance abuse, Rein In Your Brain includes guidance, recovery stories, and exercises that help readers calm the mind, reduce reactive behavior patterns, and get in touch with true feelings and goals"--
