Zen and the Art of Happiness is a perfect follow-up to The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure. We all know that one of the main reasons people turn to drugs and alcohol is for relief from their depression and stress. Staying happy is one of the most important aspects of staying sober. If you are not happy, there is a strong possibility that you will return to using drugs and alcohol again.
A lot of us are familiar with the term "dry drunk." A dry drunk is someone who is sober but unhappy and who still demonstrates alcoholic behavior. They have to white-knuckle it through sobriety. Day in and day out, they fight to stay sober because they are not happy. Sobriety should not be a fight. It should be as easy as breathing. If you don’t want to keep white-knuckling it through another day, this is the book for you. Zen and the Art of Happiness is the ultimate anti-depressant. Recovered people who have read this book say that it is the second best thing they have ever done for themselves. The first was to read The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure.
