    Description

    Do you use substances or engage in compulsive activities to regulate your mood? Do you reach for something sweet, a couple of drinks, or a pack of cigarettes after a difficult day because you can't unwind without them? Do you race to the stores to spend away the day's frustrations or run around in circles taking more time to get less done? If these self-defeating habits sound familiar, Emotional Sobriety will shed light on why and how these coping mechanisms threaten your health and impact resilience. When we manage the stresses of the day by turning to outside 'mood managers' such as food, sex, work, shopping, gambling, drugs, and alcohol rather than healthier forms of 'self-soothing,' it is because we lack emotional sobriety - the state of processing our thoughts efficiently to bring our emotions into balance, says best-selling author and renowned addictions psychologist Tian Dayton, Ph.D. In her latest book, Emotional Sobriety, Dr. Dayton shares compelling, honest tales of her life experiences and case studies of those she has counseled. Illustrating that emotional sobriety is a mind/body phenomenon, Dr. Dayton includes ideas on how to attain emotional literacy - the skill of translating feelings into words so that we can use our thought processes to understand and bring our emotions into balance - and how to calm the limbic system so that we can actually experience what we're feeling. The limbic system processes our emotions and governs our mood, appetite, and sleep cycles. Repeated painful experiences, in childhood or adulthood, over which we have no ability or sense of control or escape can over sensitize us to stress and deregulate our limbic system. Dr. Dayton shows you through concrete examples how to bring your emotions and thoughts into balance and learn healthy ways of 'self-soothing' to relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety, rage, and the desire to self-medicate.

    Almost...

    If you could sum up Emotional Sobriety in three words, what would they be?

    Parenting, Defining, Frustrating.

    What about Elizabeth Hanley’s performance did you like?

    Good performance. Steady and even.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely not...needed time in between to process.

    Any additional comments?

    I was really hoping that we would eventually get to the "solution" for emotional sobriety. Instead, the book delved into the parenting aspects and the childhood trauma that creates emotional sobriety.

    Great Book for those from Dysfunction

    If you had completely abismal parents with severe mental illness or addiction this book is for you. I can't praise this book enough for those who had completely incompetent people as parents. Now if you had slightly selfish parents who were meaningfully employed but were too controlling or manipulative, then Toxic Parents would be a better book for you. It depends on your situation. I like both books but this one was more applicable to me.

    Grateful recovering ACA

    I am at a point that if it isn’t growing me or helping me develop compassion and genuine human connection I don’t let my senses interact with it. This book is full of insight and tools to help understand your trauma and to take the steps you need to to heal from it. The narrator has a welcoming and soothing voice and I will revisit this book often. I am grateful to have found it and recommend it to anyone ready to do the work!

    Amazing

    I am so happy this book is in print. This book represents a well-articulated map of the recovery journey - from relational trauma to resilience and balance. This is a valuable resource for anyone making their way back to wholeness or helping someone to do so.

    This is THE book !!

    If you've any pain in your past...parents, spouses, anyone that made you feel bad... then you MUST read this! Regardless of the catalyst, pain is pain. Don't allow it to hold you back !

    This book gave me the insight into my 'woes' and inspiration to become a balanced happier person.

    The tools she uncovered were within me all along.

    I'm 58 now, twice married (if I knew then...) at least my second husband will not have to bare the burden of my unresolved childhood issues.

    I'd love to have the opportunity to thank you in person someday but for now... I hope you can my gratitude.

    An absolute must read

    This is the best book I've encountered on learning internal emotional regulation. I'm a trauma/addiction therapist and I give this book to every client I work with.

    A Must Listen And Read!!!

    I was introduced to Tian Dayton and her material a few months back while searching for material on trauma and addiction. I am so glad to have found her. This book runneth over with the truth, power and revelations of what I have experienced as a survivor of trauma!!! You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to listen to and read "Emotional Sobriety"!!!
