This is a hugely important work that I believewill empower individuals to break free from thetyranny of addiction and the Stockholm Syndromeof trauma-bond relationshipsHilary Betts MSc – Addictions and trauma therapistAlso...I cant tell you how excited I was to hear and read your work. Your talentfor language and words and nuance is thrilling and disturbing in equal measure - but disturbing only for its exceptional quality! Whatever you do, and however proud you dare to become of yourself...promise me youll never pretend that damage is what got you to here. I spent years thinking precisely this, before coming to terms with the fact that this chronic deception is actually just another form of self-inflicted abuse. The talent belongs to no-one but you. Its its own thing. Paul Abbott
