    Typically addicts are ashamed Society acuaintances friends and family criticize their behavior They should be ashamed one might say Really though we all do unhealthy things to our bodies To do so is to be human except for those lucky yogis who can exceed human limitations Chopra’s perspective is refreshing He argues that addicts are simply searching for joy in all the wrong places They began their addiction because they were looking for bliss Moreover those who have rarely or never experienced joy often those in lower economic brackets are inclined to turn to drugs or other addictions as substitutes Instead of using guilt or fear as ammunition against addiction Chopra concludes that the real solution is to find true honest to good joy in the addict’s lifeAt 128 pages this book won’t suck up your whole weekend You’ll leap up from the couch mere hours later inspired to change your ways The bags of potato chips you ate while reading will have to go You should probably consider eliminating the fifth of gin and pack of smokes as well The best thing about this book is its universality Chopra tackles the usual suspects alcohol tobacco illegal drugs and covers some unexpected areas as well TV food work Unless you’re one of those yogis you’ll find something that applies to your life and hopefully your joy will overflow Enjoy Get it? En JOY?

    I'm not ashamed to admit it I have an addictive personality It's been shopping booze TV CandyCrush food and social media This book is great It's short It's to the point It's all about mindfulness You're spirit Your memories I loved it Basically it's finding an old happy place diet meditation exercise mindfulness joy and laughter being by yourself being uiet and observing and enjoying what surrounds you

    pretty good book it's for people who already know that true joy is a possibility I find it highly unlikely that people will just blindly believe what chopra says about joy vs addiction without some prior knowledge that life without addiction is infinitely pleasurable however for those of you who have experienced true joy this book reconfirms that it is better than any addiction much better what chopra has to offer those in the know is invaluable and can be used as a guide and handy reference tool to continue finding and experiencing true joy also and this is VERY important one does NOT have to be spiritual at all to glean the benefits from eating right exercise meditating being mindful expressingreceiving love laughing and all the other things chopra suggests one engage in to experience joy our bodies and brains are magnificent instruments that respond really well and really uickly to being treated with excellent care beliefs in higher powergodsspirituality non withstanding for those of you who DO have a feeling of spirituality you will enjoy that chopra believes that attending to the mind and body helps the soul and that all are inextricably linked

    Deepak Chopra MD sees the addicted individual as one having potential and one who is just a misguided seeker The true object that we are all seeking he tells us is transcendence and he wants to show us how to reach this condition in his book “Overcoming Addiction The Spiritual Solution” He suggests that addiction is manifest in a variety of mood altering substances and that they can include alcohol coffee cigarettes drugs and even just food Traditional approaches in dealing with addiction are negative instilling fear as a motivator Chopra guides the reader to replacing addiction with lasting sources of joy and spiritual fulfillment The spiritual is explained as being mystical an advanced sense of self beyond our normal self and reaching a point where we abandon the self To do this we need according to Chopra a new medicine one in which mind consciousness meaning and intelligence work together to conuer self He believes that a person may attain perfect health He further develops this theme in another book “Ageless Body Timeless Mind The uantum Alternative to Growing Old” The ideas in the book are interesting but didn’t really address what the human spirit is in this reviewer’s opinion For on this book and author see

    The only really insightful thing I got from this thin little book on addiction is the idea that people who become addicted to things are really seeking a higher spiritual experience but are looking for it in the wrong places I really like this idea and it does ring true to me based on my own and others' experiences I do think there is an aspect to addiction that is about trying to reach something greater than your current reality If people who are susceptible to addiction are actually just very sensitive people who seek self improvement and higher levels of spirituality then in a way the addiction can be seen as a kind of struggle that must be overcome on the path to spirituality Aside from the above point though I don't think anything else in this book was really all that helpful or informative Its short chapters covering various addictions including alcohol drugs food etc were pretty basic in terms of the information it presented on each addiction and wasn't anything new The advice given on how to deal with these addictions is based on Deepak Chopra's Ayurveda practice which categorizes people into 3 basic types based on body metabolism etc and gives a little bit of information on how different addictions might manifest in these 3 types Ultimately though I don't think knowing your type was all that important plus I am pretty skeptical of labeling people as one type or another since the way to overcoming addiction as stated by the book all boiled down to meditation eating right exercise and trying to find joy in your life Not bad advice but nothing most people haven't already heard before and contained little practical advice on how to integrate it into daily life

    People who are addicted are sapiring to get to a deeper level of life We seek addiction because we need esctasy in our lives and cannot find it another way This reminds me of the blood type book I read years ago that has people in categories of what when and why they crave That was not a part of the book I liked

    Nice

    I'm sure this will be a book I will go back to again It makes sense to look at a problem usually considered a disease from a spiritual perspective

    Let me say I love Deepak and this book had some helpful insights However overall I felt like it had too much of a little of everything It seemed to jump all over the place and lack focus for me
