There have been many bestsellers written about healing through the power of positive thinking—You Can Heal Yourself, The Secret, The Law of Attraction—all suggesting that what you put out into the universe is what you receive in return. This simple theory took the world by storm when it was first introduced and continues to connect with millions. Now, psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Sherry Gaba, the Life Coach on VH1′s Celebrity Rehab, offers a method for putting this theory into action for addiction recovery. The Law of SobrietyTM: Attracting Positive Energy for a Powerful Recovery (HCI $14.95) combines the power of positive thinking with real action steps; you will transform your life by shifting your focus from addiction to behaviors that align with sobriety.
While working at the high-profile Malibu Treatment Center in California, Gaba began to develop a working model for combining the spiritual focus of the Law of Attraction with the real work necessary to help anyone suffering from addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, or other addictions. In The Law of SobrietyTM, she shows how anyone in recovery can connect with a universal life force to create a life filled with harmony and peace. By using the seven action steps that Gaba details, recovery from addiction becomes about the new life to be embraced instead of about the addiction itself, and gives anyone in recovery the real tools necessary to create and maintain sobriety through purpose and a meaningful life.
The Law of SobrietyTM focuses on embracing the power of being in recovery and defining a new vision for one’s sober life. It combines the theories behind the popular Law of Attraction with specific action step to create and maintain sobriety, including:
- Living a life on purpose and with intention
- Finding life’s value
- Learning to live in appreciation and with compassion
- Living a life of authenticity
- Deciding how to best create right action
- Living with profound awareness and mindfulness
- Letting go of resistance and attachments
As the author describes it, this book is a marriage of the Law of Attraction and the actions a person must take to recover from their addiction – whether the addiction is to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, shopping, nicotine, eating, or anything else. Hence, she calls it, “the law of sobriety.”

No Matter Where You Go, There You Are
I remember hearing that phrase a lot and never really understanding what it meant. After all it just makes sense that where you go is going to be where you are, that seems obvious. However, if you stop to really analyze this old saying you will find that there is more wisdom in it that what you see on the surface. Let’s take relationships...
