    Story

    At a high point in his career, Artie Lange performed a sold-out show in Carnegie Hall-and he did it with a pocketful of heroin. In the midst of a deep, self-destructive depression, addicted to heroin, cocaine, and prescription drugs, he lashed out at everyone around him-from his cohosts on The Howard Stern Show to celebrity guests and even his longtime friends. Then came his legendary meltdown on-air, with 6 million people listening, after which Lange pulled himself together enough to go to a buddy's bachelor party in Amsterdam.

    Story
    Where does Crash and Burn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely written by an addict. All our stories are the same. Its the bottom that's different. For pain is relevant to the individual.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crash and Burn?

    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.

    In February 2005, more than 10,000 people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian “Head” Welch—the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn—was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.

    Excellent account of an addict finding their way out of the hopeless and nothingness of addiction. Not your "conventional" recovery story. Well worth reading.

    Story

    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.

    Trouble is a Gift is the story of a recovered alcoholic who humbly asked for help in finding a purpose and meaning in his life, whose prayer was answered, and who then turned his dream into a reality devoted to the care and treatment of millions of sick and suffering addicts and alcoholics. James S. Cusack, alcoholic, caregiver, and astute businessman, recounts his inner struggles and self-doubt, the stages of his recovery from alcohol addiction, and the moment of clarity when his mission came to light and he saw how, with the help of God and a Twelve-Step program, he could fulfill his purpose.

  • Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption

    Story
    (27)

    In Broken, William Cope Moyers tells the story of a love affair with alcohol and crack cocaine that led him to the brink of death over and over again. A harrowing account, it paints a picture of a young man with every advantage who found himself spiraling into a dark abyss. Battling shame and self-doubt at every turn, the author finally emerges into the clear light of recovery as he dedicates his life to changing the politics of addiction.

    Jason says: "Average story with a lot of introspection"
    "Just like being there."

    Story
    Would you listen to Broken again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Broken to and why?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Very sincere addict.
