Mind On Fire: A Case Of Successful Addic
A Case of Successful Addiction Recovery
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Addicts in recovery have to navigate a minefield of existential doubts and imperfect thinking. It is even worse for people who identify completely with their ego-mind. They have an addiction to drinking, to be sure, but they also have an addiction to thinking. When they learn to set this Mind on Fire, they can find a second perspective by watching the thinker in themselves.
Readers of Mind on Fire will see themselves as if in a mirror, and get confirmation that they are not alone with their angst and fears when they stop drinking. They will find out that when we love ourselves, there is no longer a need to drink.
Recensioner i media
“Mind on Fire is an intelligently written account of a successful businessman’s struggle toward abstinence. His relentless search for a new meaning and identity in a life without alcohol pushes him way out of his comfort zone. Philip Muls takes the reader with him on a truly authentic journey full of ups and downs. I can therefore recommend Mind on Fire to anyone in search of a guide on the way to sobriety.”

Philip Muls is a senior business executive in a global corporation, who has been traveling on the job through Asia for the last twenty-plus years. He holds an MBA from Leuven University and has been granted various sales and management awards in the software industry.
After quitting alcohol in his mid-forties, Philip started to research and experiment with a variety of recovery treatments on the level of mind and body and also on the level of his deeper self.
This book blends his amazing travel stories with an authentic account of how alcohol affects the brain and how recovery from addiction can be like navigating a minefield of existential fears and obsolete beliefs.
