Mo Murray's workbook 'Just Snap your Fingers and... Bingo you're Sober' is a comprehensive guide on helping people face and deal with their addiction to alcohol. It is a compilation of a lifetime of experiences and perspectives that shaped his own understanding of his battle with alcoholism. As Mo states, "the book is written by the recovery community for the recovery community."
Mo explains that alcoholism is a disease that is like any other disease such as diabetes. He provides an analysis of how alcohol works on the brain. A large part of the book focuses on one's thoughts and perceptions. He says "Alcoholics are master self manipulators." He explains how one's perceptions become their reality. That is, one has to learn to recognize self-defeating thoughts. Our attitude is more important than facts, education, and money.
At the end of each chapter, Mo provides exercises for readers that are designed to help them tap into their thoughts and perceptions. As he states, "discovery requires conscious, continuous, positive actions." As well, he says, "life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." We are in charge of our attitude. Mo expands on the chapter of self hypnosis as part of subconsciously internalizing positive reinforcement messages to help one change negative perceptions and attitudes into positive ones.
The guidebook is very positive with humorous and philosophical anecdotes designed to provide one with the motivation, encouragement, and techniques to conquer a disease that can be very powerful to overcome. One's relationship with God is an important part of the book. Mo details how one's relationship with God is an important source of strength and internal peace.
