Omar Manejwala, M.D. discusses Craving: Why We Can’t Seem to Get Enough

June 12, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

A nationally recognized addiction psychiatrist, former Hazelden medical director and expert on compulsive behaviors will speak on his new book, Craving: Why We Can’t Seem to Get Enough and take questions on the phenomenon of craving at Flyleaf Books

“The author lucidly explains the neurological changes that occur when cravings give way to addiction, and he offers practical ways to deal with and resist temptation…”
-Publishers Weekly

“This compassionate book is highly recommended for anyone struggling with cravings or addictions of any type, as a first step on the road to recovery…5 stars”
-San Francisco Book Review

When we find ourselves wanting something strong enough, we’ll do just about anything to get it–sometimes at the expense of our bodies, brains, bank accounts, and relationships. So why do we sometimes have the irrepressible feeling that we need something–such as food, cigarettes, alcohol, or sex– that we really just want? And how do we satiate that feeling without indulging it?

In Craving, Omar Manejwala, M.D., translates the neurobiology of this phenomenon into real and accessible terms, explaining why we just can’t seem to get enough. He then gives us tools and guidance to find satisfaction without giving in to our cravings. Dr. Manejwala explains:

  • how and why our brain drives behavior
  • how to change the part of our brain that fuels our cravings
  • the warning signs that craving is evolving into addiction
  • why craving is the most difficult component of addiction to address
  • why certain groups are so effective at changing behaviors, receiving encouragement, and remaining accountable
