The production of this book represents a culmination for me of some 25 years of interest in the field of personality and substance use and abuse. In choosing the field of substanceuse and abuse for the focus of our research, all of the investi- tors collaborating in this research have been sustained by the awareness that the work we are doing has an important purpose. Substance abuse continues to have enormous impacts on individuals and families,and prevention and treatment - proaches developed to date have not always been as successful as we would hope to see. New advances in our fundamental understanding of the causal mec- nisms involved in the development ofaddiction may be necessary to advance our success in developing new forms of prevention and treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. The work in this book builds on the work of numerous previous investi- tors who have been drawn to investigate this topic. As you will notice in the extensive reference list, there have been hundreds of articles published on this topic. Although each of these references has added a small piece to our und- standing of the relationship between personality and alcohol abuse, the majority of these studies have been done on clinical samples and often involved no control groups or poorly matched control groups. Several important previous longitu- nal investigations have been conducted,but these investigations have usually not included general population samples or comprehensivepersonality test batteries.
Alcoholism addiction : A step by step cure guide

You may not realize it at first, but when your sips of wine or vodka happens too often, such as when you drink even if you are eating lunch, or you have become accustomed to drinking whenever you have problems, that may already be trouble. People oftentimes realize that they are addicted to alcohol when it is already too late. Alcoholism is a chronic and often progressive disease that includes problems controlling your drinking, being preoccupied with alcohol, continuing to use alcohol even when it causes problems, having to drink more to get the same effect (physical dependence),or having withdrawal symptoms when you rapidly decrease or stop drinking.

[This] is a comprehensive, integrative text -- an invaluable resource for clinicians and patients and a great contribution to the field." -Dr. Stephanie Brown, author of Treating Adult Children of Alcoholics "I particularly appreciated Fetting's emphasis on the importance of creating a relational space wherein the overwhelming emotional pain that the addiction has served to numb and keep hidden can be felt and brought into therapeutic dialogue. This reader-friendly book is highly recommended to students, teachers, practitioners, and anyone who wishes to gain an understanding of addiction to substances."-Robert D. Stolorow, Ph.D., psychoanalyst, author, Trauma and Human Existence
Addiction: A Behavioral Economic Perspective focuses on the behavioral economics of addiction to explain why someone decides and act against her own well-being. It answers the questions of what accounts for self-defeating behavior patterns and how do we best motivate individuals to act according with their long-term goals. A better understanding of decision processes will lead to an improved knowledge of why people engage in self-destructive behaviors and better policy interventions in areas of addiction and obesity. The approach also promises to be valuable as a framework for understanding decisions for an addict's professional and business life. This book will be of particular use to clinicians, students, and researchers in the fields of addiction, public health, and behavior therapy.
