Switching Addictions reveals snapshots of Marilyn Lancelot's life before she realizes it is possible to switch one addiction for another. Her first book, Gripped by Gambling, chronicles her descent into compulsive gambling, followed by years of recovery. This book builds on that material, following Lancelot as she so easily slips into new addictive behavior patterns.
Including helpful articles from Lancelot's friends and counselors, Switching Addictions aims to offer hope and strength to the addict, to their family members, and to those who have questions regarding their own behavior. Lancelot has included meaningful Bible verses, inspirational quotes, and a glossary of terms frequently used in recovery programs.
Ultimately, Lancelot realizes that the roots of her different addictions are connected. This realization has allowed her to make many positive changes in her life in recent years. Anyone can change, and it's never too late to find recovery and begin a new life.
