Working a 12-step program helps keep many recovering addicts and alcoholics sober, but not necessarily happy. They are often left with unresolved feelings of fear, anger, and grief about their lives.
"Addiction and Grief" looks at the emotional "bottom" of recovery. Just as one needs to hit bottom with drinking or using in order to begin recovery, eventually one will also hit an emotional bottom of fear, anger, and grief.
Recovery author Barb Rogers challenges readers in recovery to investigate the unresolved grief and loss in their lives; negative emotions that can lead back to using if not resolved.
She begins with a "Grief" list, that helps readers understand where, when, and how fear and anger took control of their lives; then she asks a set of questions to identify how these negative emotions continue to hold them back in recovery.
"Addiction and Grief" shows that authentic recovery is more than an attitude; it is based on emotional work that involves an honest appraisal of one's life, and the willingness to change.

Barb Rogers is one book in a series of three about simple life fixes. This book shows readers how to pray simply and honestly.
Clutter means different things to different people. To the people Barb Rogers works with in the growing Clutterers Anonymous movement, clutter is what prevents them from getting ahead in life. This book helps readers identify symptoms and provides solutions that are modeled on the 12 Steps and traditions of AA.
Inspired by the 12-step saying, 'Life is simple, it's people who are complicated', Barb Rogers points out in "Keep It Simple and Sane" that it's pretty easy to tell ourselves lie upon lie as we explain away bad behaviour associated with drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work whatever, in an attempt to feel better about our complicated lies. And of course, we can't do anything to simplify our lives because we're too busy keeping up with our complicated lives, so we drink, smoke, or shoot, to seek release in inappropriate ways to relieve the complications. But we never do. Through the telling of her own story and those of fellow travellers, Rogers encourages readers to wait, stop, and hold the phone!Start with Mentally Simple (the opposite of Stinking Thinking) and just do it. Start small. 'Grab a mental flashlight' and follow her lead to discover what you were thinking and how you might think differently. Offering 24 simple ideas in four sections (mind, emotions, spirituality, physicality), along with strategies and exercises to introduce them into your daily life, this book is for people on the simple path to wellness, for people who simply want to take charge - to change the things they can change, accept the things they cannot change, and learn to know the difference without an operatic, addictive song and dance.
Barb Rogers has been clean and sober for a long time. And she knows that doesn't make a difference. What makes a difference is that she's clean and sober today. Much of Barb's time goes to conducting meetings and to writing about a simple programme that she and countless men and women around the world credit with not only saving their lives, but helping them reclaim or claim for the first time peace, serenity, and happiness. So what is this programme that people love and praise or loathe and fear? That they avoid or come back to time and time again? Rogers begins by asking, rhetorically: a cult? a curse? a cure? None of the above, though it may feel like it to the addict and his or her family and friends. Rogers speculates that the programme works, at least in part, because it applies to anyone with any kind of addiction problem - pointing out that it's only in Step 1 that people name what they are powerless over - alcohol, marijuana, food, etc. It works because it's ongoing. It works because of its dual focus inward and outward. It works because people recognize that their lives are better for it. It is, as the saying goes, simple, but not always easy. There is no perfection, there is no process, there is only walking the talk, one day at a time.
