"Hi, my name is David and I'm an alcoholic. I wasn't always an alcoholic. I'm not even sure when I became an alcoholic. I didn’t have a full understanding of what an alcoholic was until I was in my late twenties. I was always under the impression that an alcoholic was a homeless person who slept on park benches covered with newspaper or a person who had to go to those silly meetings. There was absolutely no way in the world that I could be an alcoholic. Sure, I drank a lot, but I just liked to have a good time. Doesn’t everybody?
"Not everyone who drinks alcohol is, or will become, an alcoholic. Although, the only difference between a “normal” drunk person and an alcoholic is that an alcoholic is unable to control their drinking. The same negative results from drunkenness can happen to anyone, alcoholic or not. A drunken person is still a drunken person. Knowing this, I have put together 20 good reasons to stay sober (even if you don’t have a drinking problem)."
Note: This book consists of concepts relating to the dangers of alcohol use in correlation with our pursuit of peace and pleasure. It is specifically tailored for the teenage/young adult listener.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narration was SO bad I could not continue.
Has 20 Good Reasons to Stay Sober, Even If You Don't Have a Drinking Problem turned you off from other books in this genre?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Adashefski?
any one but this guy
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 20 Good Reasons to Stay Sober, Even If You Don't Have a Drinking Problem?
First and foremost the narrator
