Do you have a pesky habit you want to stop? Do you have an addiction, and nothing seems to enable you to get rid of it? Self-Help Sucks! by Tony Blankenship explains Tony’s struggle with the self-help methods and how they have failed him. He has tried them all and now shares with his readers the techniques that worked for him. Simply put, Tony believes in a new modification of the Twelve Step program approach. In Tony’s eyes, the influence of a Higher Power can be anything you want it to be. You make your own Higher Power. The point is that to overcome any addiction, you need strength from outside yourself. When one tries to reform on their own, they set themselves up for failure. When one learns to look outside themselves and lean on a Higher Power, they line up with success.
Tony Blankenship shares his lifelong struggle with addiction and how he finally found victory in his book Self-Help Sucks! Tony writes from vast experience; a life spent trying every form of self-help there is. He tried it all and failed miserably. When Tony decided to be honest and work a Twelve-Step Program, Tony learned that he could become successful with the help of a Higher Power. His writing is an inspiring, first-person testimony of how he overcame defeat and found victory over addiction. Tony does not preach: he shares his successes and his failures alike. Self-Help Sucks! teaches that the most important part of overcoming addictions is to depend on a Higher Power that is comfortable for you. When the addict is satisfied with their idea of a Higher Power, they are more likely to rely on it.
