From time to time we like to share some of the response we receive in the mail. This recent letter (with some personal info deleted) sent to us from Larry N (Venice, CA) was a “colorful” and much appreciated addition to our day!
Dear Mr. Herzanek,
I just finished reading your amazing book “Why Don’t They Just Quit?” I have a son that is abusing alcohol, pot and perhaps other substances. . .
. . . This has been a frustrating journey, but your book gives me guidance regarding my behavior toward him, and regarding what I can and can’t do to change his behavior. Hopefully, his path toward recovery will begin today when he gets up.
One more thing—I don’t think that I have read a more effectively-written book. Your straightforward approach, with no frills and fluff, make every sentence informative. This is the Gettysburg Address of how to help with substance abuse. I will be ordering more copies to pass around. Best wishes with your continued work in this field.
