Definitely written by an addict. All our stories are the same. Its the bottom that's different. For pain is relevant to the individual.
The conclusion. For here is where he shows us just how much recovery he has and how much more healing is required. Resentment is our number 1 enemy. Addiction is a disease that will and must be treated daily. Just for Today.
Excellent account of an addict finding their way out of the hopeless and nothingness of addiction. Not your "conventional" recovery story. Well worth reading.
I am hard to please when it comes to this subject. Having been in active addiction for over 30 yrs, I know who is real or not. I only learned to recognize this through the past 14 yrs of living a program of recovery.
This is more of an "event in the life of " kind of book. It doesn't speak of how this disease affects every area of our lives as well as the ones around us. Just kept getting the vibe that this guy is not serious and not giving his disease and his program of recovery the attention it requires to recover. Seem to go off on tangents about famous people who have had a drinking problem.
It's very mild. No doubt that is what the author was looking to do. A decent story of an event that happened in one mans life.
But then again, I am very hard to please.
Good story from an old timer that proves and shows that a commitment to recovery never stops and Never stops rewarding a day at a time.
I wouldn't. But that's just me. This is an exceptional book, however, there seems to be many more that I haven't read. Its a "time and Newness thing" for me.
Crash and Burn. The story of how it was, what happened and what its like now from high profile (actors, in the news celebrities) Which I have found out the only difference between them and me is money. Take away the money and we addicts are all the same on the inside, where we are sick.
Very sincere addict.
