Martin Nicolaus, author of Empowering Your Sober Self and Recovery by Choice, has an article in the recent edition of the “Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery.” Nicolaus, the founding leader of LifeRing who retired in 2010, still makes regular speaking engagements drawing on his knowledge and experience in the recovery field.

The article, which can be accessed through Nicolaus’s website,, is entitled “Empowering Your Sober Self.” Nicolaus writes:

An article I wrote late last year about the LifeRing recovery group has now been published in the Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery, Vol. 7, 2012.  This is a special double issue on the theme “Broadening the Base of Addiction Mutual Support Groups: Bringing Theory and Science to Contemporary Trends.”

    I really like the LifeRing program. I am now sober almost 14 years and have followed the 12-Step way for as long as I could stand it. LifeRing is so much better and simpler. I’m a HUGE fan!
