Can I Keep Drinking?

How You Can Decide When Enough is Enough

Morgan James’s new release, Can I Keep Drinking? How You Can Decide When Enough is Enough by Cyndi Turner sheds new light on recovery for those struggling with alcohol.


Everyone knows the Alcoholics Anonymous scene made cliché by Hollywood. Failure seems to be just as systematic as folding chairs and circle-sitting in a community center gymnasium. In reality, ninety percent of treatment programs that address alcohol use disorders require total abstinence. This is only necessary for six percent of the population.


Alcohol is a part of life and is a large component of merrymaking in society. This, coupled with the inundation of its dangers has created a lot of confusion leading a lot of people to ask, “Do I have a problem?” The spectrum of alcohol use isn’t as black and white as it may seem. There are ninety million drinkers experiencing problems in America, but they are not all alcoholics who need to give up drinking completely. Cyndi Turner provides a refreshingly moderate look at alcohol use. Can I Keep Drinking? helps many craft a healthier relationship with alcohol.
