10+: Women With Long-Term Sobriety Talk About Life, Love, Family, Work, and Money by Sylvia Cary

There are a lot of perks to becoming sober, and even more for staying sober over the long haul. Wouldnt you like to know what it is like to have 10 years free of alcohol or drugs? 25 years. 50 years! The women in 10+ tell you in their own words what it will be like being sober for decades - and they tell you much more.

They have the insight of both experience and sobriety. 10+ divides the wise words of these women into chapters that dealwith seven important life areas: feelings, work, love, family, finances, troubles, and citizenship. Each chapter concludes with a Sober Tips List, summarizing the most important points and coping hints from the interviews, ins
