I am a recovering alcoholic, 14 months sober. I just finished reading 2 of Sarno's books and amazed to see that the most common root cause of TMS and Alcoholism are very similar. Self-Centered fear is what it is commonly referred to in AA. Wondering if other AAs have had success with TMS as a result of the 12 Steps or from Sarno's program. I have recurring lower back pain and no structural damage. Tony D.
