These words, familiar to recovering people everywhere, describe the challenging realities we must face when we begin recovering from an addiction. And as life goes on there is a tremendous need for meaningful recovery support. Learning to deal with the different stages of growth and the new emotions that surface during the recovery process requires new living skills.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sales of the Random House edition of Hockney's Alphabet will go to the American Friends of AIDS Crisis Trust for AIDS research and services to people with AIDS. Sir Stephen Spender invited a number of distinguished writers in Britain and America to contribute original texts for an alphabet to be specially drawn by David Hockney, the proceeds of which would benefit AIDS research and services to people with AIDS. The result is this stunning volume of ABCs for grown-ups, a unique anthology of art and literature. Here are the letters of the alphabet, in David Hockney's inimitable style -- created in a variety of media, including collage and laser copier -- with brief accompanying texts by a dazzling array of world-class writers. Each was assigned to his or her letter by Stephen Spender, who himself contributed the Preface and a poem for the letter A. Those who love words will delight in the texts, which include, among others: -- Joyce Carol Oates on B, for birth, the "most profound" of all the Bs. -- Iris Murdoch on C, a "warm, comforting, friendly" letter. -- Paul Theroux on D, for death: "An endless night so awful to contemplate that it can make us love life and value it with such passion that it may be the ultimate cause of all joy and all art." -- Gore Vidal on E: "So very like a comb." -- Norman Mailer on F: "What a compliment you are paying me with that letter." -- Martin Amis on H, for homosexual: "It asks for courage. It demands courage." -- Erica Jong on I, a poem, "To the Letter I." -- Margaret Drabble on L, for laughter: "Do we not, in looking back on friendships, holidays, parties, good times, remember the laughter even when the jokes are forgotten?" -- Doris Lessing on P, for pumpkin: "One of the joys of autumn." -- Kazuo Ishiguro on T, for T-bone steak: "A dish renowned for its directness and simplicity." -- Julian Barnes on U, for unless: "The most sinister word in the English language." -- John Updike on V, for venereal, but also for victory. -- Susan Sontag on W, for weather. -- Anthony Burgess on X, a poem, "An Elegy for X." Along the way, there is a previously unpublished letter, donated to the project by Mrs. Valerie Eliot, from T. S. Eliot to a young, aspiring writer, and a short essay by Arthur Miller comparing contemporary prejudice against AIDS to the prejudice against tuberculosis he remembers from his childhood. "The world's Alphabets -- Alpha to Omega," says Stephen Spender in the Preface, "are drums and trumpets, clarion calls, State Funerals, Massed Choirs, Burial and Redemption." Hockney's Alphabet is all that, as well as an enchanting and thought-provoking gift book that will help end the AIDS crisis here and all over the world. From the Paperback edition.

It is only in the past 20 years that the concept of 'recovery' from mental health has been more widely considered and researched. Before then, it was generally considered that 'stability' was the best that anyone suffering from a mental disorder could hope for. But now it is recognised that, throughout their mental illness, many patients develop new beliefs, feelings, values, attitudes, and ways of dealing with their disorder. The notion of recovery from mental illness is thus rapidly being accepted and is inserting more hope into mainstream psychiatry and other parts of the mental health care system around the world. Yet, in spite of conceptual and other challenges that this notion raises, including a variety of interpretations, there is scarcely any systematic philosophical discussion of it. This book is unique in addressing philosophical issues - including conceptual challenges and opportunities - raised by the notion of recovery of people with mental illness. Such recovery - particularly in relation to serious mental illness such as schizophrenia - is often not about cure and can mean different things to different people. For example, it can mean symptom alleviation, ability to work, or the striving toward mental well-being (with or without symptoms). The book addresses these different meanings and their philosophical grounds, bringing to the fore perspectives of people with mental illness and their families as well as perspectives of philosophers, mental health care providers and researchers, among others. The important new work will contribute to further research, reflective practice and policy making in relation to the recovery of people with mental illness.It is essential reading for philosophers of health, psychiatrists, and other mental care providers, as well as policy makers.

Twelve Steps. Twelve Traditions. And yes, Twelve Principles. The Steps outline the actions that lead to extraordinary healing. The Traditions exist as guides to the functioning of the Fellowship. Embedded in both is a series of Principles by which to measure your progress. Anyone who lives a Twelve Step way of life will recognize the principles passed on in A Gentle Path through the Twelve Principles. They have existed among fellowships as a hidden curriculum of fundamental truths about recovery for decades, but never before have they been distilled into a succinct set of values that, when practiced, help each of us to develop an essential skill set for life. The principles--such universal touchstones for human self-realization as acceptance, awareness, responsibility, openness, honesty, courage, commitment, and meaning--are concepts that enable a deep inner study and focus to make a new life happen in recovery. Recovery means reengineering your life with a focus on renewal. The Twelve Principles are designed to help you get there.

For most of church history, hospitality was central to Christian identity. Yet our generation knows little about this rich, life-giving practice. In Making Room, Christine Pohl revisits the discipline of welcoming strangers and provides the foundation for renewed commitment to recovering hospitality as a Christian tradition. Combining biblical and historical research with extensive interviewing of people in contemporary communities of hospitality--the Catholic Worker, L'Abri, L'Arche, Good Works, Jubilee Partners, St. John's Abbey, and others--Pohl explores the necessity, difficulty, and blessing of practicing hospitality today.
