This book describes in detail the dark places where my addiction took me and how, with the willingness and desire to change, I was able to rise from the ashes and find that somewhat and every elusive peace of mind. It tells the story of addiction and just how cunning and powerful the disease is, and the path of destruction that follows. It tells the story of how addiction is a family disease and how so many lives are affected, not just the life of the addict. It is my hope that people reading or listening to this book will come to see that anything is possible in life, once you stop living your life based on others expectations for you - nothing good ever comes from this.
