I wrote it to help others avoid the pain and misery caused by addiction and relapse that I lived through until I finally learned how to recover. I will help you understand addiction and show you the road to recovery. Once you read my story and see what I lived through because of my addiction to drugs and alcohol and then see how I was able to recover from it and remain clean and sober, then you will see that you can do it, too. This book will show you how. Addiction to drugs and alcohol can have devastating effects on life, family, and relationships, and in many cases leads to incarceration or death. If you have family or friends that are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, then this book will help you understand them and what they are going through so you can formulate a plan to help them get treatment. Most addicts hate drugs and don't want to use them, but have feelings of worthlessness that have them feeling trapped with no way out. This book will show them how to break the cycle and get their life back.
