one hundred men and women who have recovered from a seemingly
hopeless state of mind and body have contributed to this
book. The stories of these individuals in their struggles
physically and mentally to overcome alcoholic addiction
are gripping. A physician writes in the introduction that
the action of alcohol in chronic alcoholism is a manifestation
of allergy. Therefore, hospitalization and proper treatment
is often necessary to free the patient from his craving
for liquor. When the mind is clear he is a candidate for
psychological measures. This book deals principally with
such measures as exemplified in the stories of alcoholics.
