From Scribd: About the Book

When it comes to recovering from addiction there are many troubles along the path that can trip you up. Fear, resentment, self pity, intolerance, anger are just a few of the defects that will undermine even the best designed plans for recovery, and it is no uncommon for individuals try to recover from addiction to get hung up on negative, self defeating behaviors. Those are the "rocks" that will sink recovery, or last least block further progress, without a doubt unless they are dealt with.

With over 100,000 copies sold, Drop the Rock is the go-to definitive guide for addressing and conquering character defects that can prevent gratifying, long-term recovery. This concept is based on the Twelve Step program, with huge emphasis on the principles that define steps Six and Seven. Drop the Rock is an inspiring combination of personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help readers move forward down their path to recovery.

In this new edition, there are additional stories, an extensive reference section, and never before released information about how to start a Drop the Rock study group. Addiction is hard, but with this practical guide you can find your way to a true and joyful recovery.

  • Absolutely crucial book that helped me in my recovery from addiction. I had gone through AA for many years, but with the focus being on the 12 steps they just weren't cutting it for me. After reading Drop the Rock, and reading Bill's unique emphasis on steps six and seven, it really struck home the things that I needed to change in my life. I cannot stress enough that recovery from addiction, at least in my personal case, was just about getting off my butt and committing to a program, committing to recovery. It is easy to read book after book after pamphlet and think to yourself that you'll do it tomorrow, or later. With Bill's commanding language and direct, no BS approach I was able to get my butt into gear and get on the bandwagon of recovery.

  • Although, in the traditional 12 steps of AA steps six and seven are more heavily focused on seeking help from God, I really, really enjoy what the author has done with this book. I've struggled with recovery for...too long. A friend turned me onto this book with a kind heart, knowing that I struggled with placing my future and recovery into the hands of a power I could not comprehend. What the author does in this book is change the steps up a tad, or at least make them more accessible for someone like me, someone who isn't quite ready to give their entire hand over to some higher power. Hearing the different ways to take ownership of my own life, my own decisions, and be responsible for what I have done was life changing, and I think all I needed was to hear it from someone else to know I had it right.

    Although it might be easy to dismiss this book, saying there's little new here, my experience was more a case of recognition, as it, "well, of course, know why didn't I see that before?" I double-digit years in recovery and wish I'd found this book when I was doing the 6th and 7th steps (although they're the sorts of steps one never quite stops doing as life's path takes new twists and turns) and I now recommend it to people who ask my advice on how to identify what might be holding them back on their spiritual journey. It's a straight-forward, clearly written examination of possible character defects, with highly useful suggestions as to how to free one's self. I am particularly pleased to see Joe McQ quoted so much, as he was influential in my own understanding of sobriety, and spiritual growth, and a man I much admired. Not only is this an extremely helpful book for those working "The Steps" for the first time, but it's a wonderful refresher course for those of us who've been around for a while and want to keep things green. Recommended.
