Here’s what people are saying about it:
This book has what it takes for me. Kim’s story from addiction to freedom is compelling and touching. From the intimate details of how addiction had grabbed onto her life through the steps she took to first loosen the grip it had over her and then to find a new freedom in her life, Numb No More has given me the ability to see that I can do the same. I have been through 12 step programs and struggled at times with guilt and negative emotions around the addiction. Kim Pottle’s book has taken away those negative stigmatisms and shined light on a new way to view and find power over your addiction. Her unique transformations from addiction to freedom are written in terms that I had no problem understanding and working into my life, she has written this book from a layman’s perspective and made it so simple and uplifting. If you are in need of a book that will help you live your life free from addiction without beating yourself up through the ups and downs of the process, this is the one. – R. Hancock
First let me tell you I’m not a fan of the whole self help section of book stores. But I know I needed something and the title is what led me to buying this book. I have been numb for several years now, not due to gambling or being an alcoholic but living with my own personal addictions that have led me to chasing down temporary highs to satisfy me. I knew there was more to life than secretly spending money and lying about my purchases. I knew that when I binged on food just to purge it out of me later was killing me, not just physically but mentally and spiritually as well. I hated myself, hated what I saw when I looked in the mirror and I knew that it was time to start the healing process. So I started here…
I devoured this book in less than two hours because on every page I was able to relate to what Ms. Pottle was describing as she was dealing with her own personal demons. By using the stepping stones each day I can take a step back, breathe and know that I am going to be just fine. – S. Boatman
I purchased this book several weeks ago for something to read. I didn’t consider myself as having any Addictions. I don’t gamble, don’t drink, and didn’t have any negative habits that I could think of. But, as I read the book, I realized that I have many Addictions. I have the addition of taking several naps a day and tell myself that it is just resting. As I read more, I thought about my life over the years and how WORK in television was a very big addiction for me. I have spent as many as 130 hours in a week at the TV station – and did this many times. The family came second, or third, or forth. This book has made me to look more at me and what I am now doing every day and to see the additions I have in all areas of my life. It is a book that I have purchased several copies to send to people that I know that have additions in their life – like gambling.
This book and information should be in everyone’s collection of “have read ” books. It is not only for the gambler with an addiction, but everyone who has any type of addiction to something. It is also a book to have extra copies of to pass on to friends and family that need help.
