Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 

OSCARS NIGHT "BEST-OF" REPLAY: Addiction treatment specialist Dr. Stanton Peele will lay out his groundbreaking thinking on the personal responsibility approach to addiction and kicking everyday bad habits.
Peele will talk about how to fight addiction without a 12-step program. He'll also bust many of the myths many people hold about addiction -- as well as the excuses they cling to for why they can't overcome their self-defeating, destructive behaviors. He'll offer practical thinking and steps for change. 
We'll be discussing unhealthy love and relationships as well as substance addiction and more minor and common bad habits.
Peele wrote a really fantastic book, co-authored with Archie Brodsky, called Love And Addiction, and more recently, and also very wise, the book, 7 Tools To Beat Addiction. He blogs at Psychology Today and The Huffington Post.
