Review of “Overcome Any Personal Obstacle, Including Alcoholism, By Understanding Your Ego”
Overcome Any Personal Obstacle… by Lee A. Eide is a wise book that taps into philosophies about the seven sins and the ego in relation to beating alcoholism and becoming happier. It is a unique approach to healing an addiction or any ego-related issue by looking within and determining how your ego is getting in the way of living your life serenely.
Eide shares his profound experiences as a recovered alcoholic and his knowledge gained over the years. Enough experience turns a person into an expert, and Eide is no exception. He discovered what allowed him to understand his illness and conquer alcoholism…and it wasn’t just the 12 steps of “Alcoholics Anonymous.” It involved understanding how the ego plays a part in keeping an alcoholic in the throes of addiction.
In this book, Eide covers the topic of the ego, shares his personal experiences and expertise of recovering from alcohol addiction, and shows how faith and religion come into play in understanding how to find serenity.
I recommend this book to anyone who is unhappy with their current state of being, because it will help free you from the hold of your ego. And if you suffer from alcoholism, this book may be the key that unlocks the door to your new life of sobriety.
You can get your copy in paperback format at Amazon. It’s a great read!
