Description : Addiction is multi-faceted and each facet must be addressed. Breaking the Octopus Grip of Addiction came through revelation of an octopus. The head represents the spirit of bondage, the tentacles represent: rejection, iniquity, rebellion, python, fragmentation, trauma and imprinting. This book equips addicts and their mentors to address a plethora of issues leading to the truth that will set them free. Addictions have become one of the top problems in today’s North America. Almost every family has at least one addicted member. How do we as believers assist true seekers in finding freedom? Dr. Douglas and Pamela Carr not only layout the problem but describe in detail the steps to freedom. They noted the characteristics of the octopus and used it to frame the addiction challenges, outlining each issue and the route to freedom. I know both Doug and Pam well. I have watched them blossom over the years we have been in relationship. They started with healing and delivering themselves of their own issues and broke through into helping others. Now they are flourishing. I highly recommend both them and this book. —Barbara J Yoder Lead Apostle Shekinah Regional Apostolic Center Breakthrough Apostolic Ministries Network www.shekinahchurch.org www.barbaraYODERblog.com

Description : 'Exquisite' - Fearne Cotton 'The kind of book that changes lives, and very possibly saves them' - The Lancet Psychiatry 'A reflective, raw and riveting read. A beautiful book on what it takes to root for yourself' - Emma Gannon, Ctrl Alt Delete 'Stone cold sober.' Sounds horrible, doesn't it? Hard, icy. Brrrrr. No bloody ta. However, as the millions who choose to stay sober now know, the propaganda around drinking and sobriety is wonky. Sober doesn't feel stony, or cold. Retired wreckhead Catherine Gray, author of surprise bestseller The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, is now in her eighth sober year and has learnt a damn sight more. This hotly anticipated sequel enlists the help of experts and case studies, turning a curious, playful gaze onto provocative questions. Is alcohol a parenting aid? Why are booze and cocaine such a horse and carriage? Once an addict, always an addict? How do you feel safe - from alcohol, others and yourself - in sobriety? Whether you're a dedicated boozehound, flirting with teetotalling, or already sober, this witty, gritty read may just change how you think about alcohol forever. Praise for The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober: 'Fascinating' - Bryony Gordon 'Truthful, modern and real' - Stylist 'Brave, witty and brilliantly written' - Marie Claire 'Gray's tale of going sober is uplifting and inspiring' - Evening Standard 'Not remotely preachy' - Sunday Times 'Jaunty, shrewd and convincing' - Sunday Telegraph 'Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying' - Guardian 'An empathetic, warm and hilarious tale from a hugely likeable human' - The Lancet Psychiatry

Description : THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Not remotely preachy' - The Times 'Jaunty, shrewd and convincing' - Sunday Telegraph 'Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying.' - Alice O'Keeffe, Guardian 'Truthful, modern and real' - Stylist 'Brave, witty and brilliantly written' - Marie Claire Ever sworn off alcohol for a month and found yourself drinking by the 7th? Think there's 'no point' in just one drink? Welcome! There are millions of us. 64% of Brits want to drink less. Catherine Gray was stuck in a hellish whirligig of Drink, Make horrible decisions, Hangover, Repeat. She had her fair share of 'drunk tank' jail cells and topless-in-a-hot-tub misadventures. But this book goes beyond the binges and blackouts to deep-dive into uncharted territory: What happens after you quit drinking? This gripping, heart-breaking and witty book takes us down the rabbit-hole of an alternative reality. A life with zero hangovers, through sober weddings, sex, Christmases and breakups. In The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, Catherine Gray shines a light on society's drink-pushing and talks to top neuroscientists and psychologists about why we drink, delving into the science behind what it does to our brains and bodies. Much more than a tale from the netherworld of addicted drinking, this book is about the escape, and why a sober life can be more intoxicating than you ever imagined. Whether you're a hopelessly devoted drinker, merely sober-curious, or you've already ditched the drink, you will love this book. 'Haunting, admirable and enlightening' - The Pool 'A riveting, raw, yet humorous memoir with actionable advice.' - Annie Grace, author of This Naked Mind 'Like listening to your best friend teach you to be sober. Lighthearted but serious, it's packed with ideas, tools, tips and, most importantly, reasons for living a sober life.'- Eric Zimmer, host of podcast The One You Feed 'Gray's fizzy writing succeeds in making this potentially boring-as-hell subject both engaging and highly seductive' - The Bookseller 'Her exquisitely crafted thoughts on the joys of being sober are not only deeply honest and pragmatic, but she manages to infuse tons of humor. This is a delightful, informative, and compelling read for all those who are sober or seeking sobriety.' - Sasha Tozzi, Huffington Post

Description : **From the Sunday Times Bestselling Author** Life-affirming - THE TELEGRAPH Wonderful - INDEPENDENT She made it her mission to learn how to be default happy rather than default disgruntled - RADIO 4 - WOMAN'S HOUR Take a leaf out of Gray's book and be kinder to yourself by appreciating life just as it is - IRISH TIMES This book came to me in an hour of need - during lockdown when I had to focus on the positive, appreciate simple things, not lose my shit, and value each day. It was a pure joy for me and held my hand - SADIE FROST Interesting and joyful. Lights a path that could help us to build resilience against society's urging to compare life milestones with peers - LANCET PSYCHIATRY Underwhelmed by your ordinary existence? Disillusioned with your middlin' wage, average body, 'bijou' living situation and imperfect loved ones? Welcome to the club. There are billions of us. The 'default disenchanted'. But, it's not us being brats. Two deeply inconvenient psychological phenomenons conspire against our satisfaction. We have negatively-biased brains, which zoom like doom-drones in on what's wrong with our day, rather than what's right. (Back in the mists of time, this negative bias saved our skins, but now it just makes us anxious). Also, something called the 'hedonic treadmill' means we eternally quest for better, faster, more, like someone stuck on a dystopian, never-ending treadmill. Thankfully, there are scientifically-proven ways in which we can train our brains to be more positive-seeking. And to take a rest from this tireless pursuit. Whew. Catherine Gray knits together illuminating science and hilarious storytelling, unveiling captivating research showing that big bucks don't mean big happiness, extraordinary experiences have a 'comedown' and budget weddings predict a lower chance of divorce. She reminds us what an average body actually is, reveals that exercising for weight loss means we do less exercise, and explores the modern tendency to not just try to keep up with the Murphys, but keep up with the Mega-Murphies (see: the social media elite). Come on in to this soulful and life-affirming read, to discover why an ordinary life may well be the most satisfying one of all. PRAISE FOR CATHERINE GRAY'S WRITING: "Uplifting and inspiring" The Evening Standard "Not remotely preachy" The Times "Jaunty, shrewd and convincing" The Telegraph "Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying" The Guardian "An empathetic, warm and hilarious tale from a hugely likeable human" The Lancet Psychiatry

Description : 'A brilliant cultural history.' Irish Examiner Girls behave badly. If they're not obscenity-shouting, pint-swigging ladettes, they're narcissistic, living dolls floating around in a cloud of self-obsession, far too busy twerking to care. And this is news. In this witty and wonderful book, Carol Dyhouse shows that where there's a social scandal or a wave of moral outrage, you can bet a girl is to blame. Whether it be stories of 'brazen flappers' staying out and up all night in the 1920s, inappropriate places for Mars bars in the 1960s or Courtney Love's mere existence in the 1990s, bad girls have been a mass-media staple for more than a century. And yet, despite the continued obsession with their perceived faults and blatant disobedience, girls are infinitely better off today than they were a century ago. This is the story of the challenges and opportunities faced by young women growing up in the swirl of the twentieth century, and the pop-hysteria that continues to accompany their progress.

Description : We are well aware of the Greek contribution 'Oedipus Complex'. However, the opposite of the same is seldom aired. The IT revolution has made countries like India fast developing, economically strong nations. This is coupled with self-imposed single child nuclear family norms, and the resulting social churning presents interesting situations. The story centers on the teen love of a fourteen year old girl in Tamizh Nadu, South Indian setting. The brutal killing of an innocent, buxom maid infuriates the mother, who turns protagonist. The over indulgent dad is caught between his lady love and young Princess! Teens, juveniles, parents, goons and police have role to play in this fiction. The unfolding events juxtapose the husband against his wife sublimely. The parents were lovers in college and married against their respective families' wishes. Their LOVE is still in tact. The question is about dodging the law and twisting the rule of law. The nuclear families are a sort of explosions in India for the past two decades or so. This social milieu offers interesting clashes and a fitting finale for the author to think of a serial! *** In just under seven decades since Independence [1947], the Indian population exploded almost four times to 1250 million. During the same period the USA might have accommodated just fewer than fifty million extra populations mostly due to immigrants! With one fourth of the US land area, very few can imagine the social milieu for the national pie. The land of elephants, snake charmers and, now, the IT techno-coolies is a veritable holy land for swamis, sanyasis, gurus, vagabonds, loafers, quitters, travelers and beggars [both professional and suddenly forced-out amateurs]. One evening, this author was unfortunate to look closely at a road side bearded, middle aged man [or little older, perhaps] gasping for breadth. His eyes were half closed and he seemed to be in a state of trance. Who's a 'true' saint on the wandering and who's a fraudulent one, no ordinary persons can gauge. He signaled for close attention. "I've just received a boon from the Supreme God, Lord Siva. Hence forth, no girl would attain puberty before the age of twenty one and no male would have erection of the phallus-es till twenty five and attain puberty before that. The Institution of Family would live longer peacefully with pride and dignity!" "Was teen love a night mare for you?" The inquiry elicited no response. The man moved his right thumb up, bent back to indicate need for water. Given a bottle of water, he took few gulps. It might have been the blessed nectar of the Gods, gotten when the milky ocean was churned. Lord Siva dared to drink the deadly poison that gushed, to prove his superiority over other competing Gods like Vishnu and Brahma. With renewed vigor, he narrated some events in short hand notation, so to say. Several youth of the age group fourteen to twenty one flashed through his venomous narration. "Which one was your offspring or grandchild?" The traveler cast a harsh look. Had he the third "EYE" of Lord Siva, the author would have been reduced to ashes instantly. "Now you heard the chaos. Find out yourself if you're worth the education you received!" The author was besieged with a mundane question, "Which youth?" He set out to locate the families and its members in his imagination. *** The teen girl is the blue eyed babe of the father. The mother as strict disciplinarian and as protagonist rushes to track down the criminals. The father languishes under the octopus like grip of his darling Princess. The 'love of the teen girl', she proclaims as unconditional, divine and unbreakable. The protagonist is not against love but for justice. The agony of the teen girl in love is indescribable. The angst of the protagonist erupts as volcano between motherly instinct and justice for the slain maid with two orphaned kids. The self-imposed page restriction has given ample room for the author to think of a chronicle
