Who is B. Anna Marion and why should we read her approach to overcoming addictions? Primarily because Marion has been where you are perhaps finding yourself now. After several decades of self-abuse…and it is self-abuse…her alcohol and binge-eating were out of control. She had hit rock bottom. When her beloved husband threatened divorce, she suffered through rehab and has stayed “clean” ever since. And before you ask, did she attend AA which cites a success rate of 50%? No. She did it through hypnosis, EMDR, Bilateral Stimulation, Visualization, Meditation, Journaling, and much, much more.
If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that every new year, social and media outlets will bombard us with suggestions to “go dry” in January/February. Magazines will brim with articles on how to lose excess weight. The problem with short-term corrections for those who overindulge in harmful health habits is their impermanence. Too many return and succumb to that “toxic ex”; this is how B. Anna Marion describes this cycle in Less Will, More Power. Why do we go back to toxic lovers? Because of how we felt at the beginning. Those addicted to anything, including alcohol, food, and drugs, must divorce, not just break up with that toxic ex. Anyone loving themselves enough to choose themselves over that toxic ex will see this brilliant self-help book to be like filing divorce papers.
It only took the first few pages of B. Anna Marion’s book to realize I was in for an entertaining, life-changing read. She tells it like it is. I loved her direct approach. Her language occasionally borders on shocking, but sometimes, people need to be shocked into taking control of their addictions instead of being controlled by them. It is also clearly evident those who think they can do it alone are deluding themselves. As a personal development coach and clinical hypnotherapist, Marion becomes the friend and mentor you need to help you succeed. She encourages you to visit her website and take advantage of her self-hypnosis audios. After reading Less Will, More Power and exploring her website, one thing is abundantly clear: Marion sincerely believes that her approach will help you change your life today. If you are fighting an addiction, you owe it to yourself to read her story. I very highly recommend this to all readers.
