Excerpt from the eBookOne of the biggest challenges an addict faces is denial.
No-one can get clean when they don’t believe they have a problem and they don’t need help.
In treatment for addiction one of the big focuses is what they call “powerlessness and damages”.
It is what helps an addict to see that they have a problem.
This eBook is not intended to be a collection of war stories. It is actually a collection of some of my worst cases of powerlessness and damages.
If you are not an addict or an alcoholic know that I have written this book with as much honesty as I can and I have tried to convey exactly how I was feeling at the time.
So let’s play a game while you read my book, ok?
Pretend you are in a fantasy world where any craziness is possible, even someone being in complete denial when the truth is smacking them on the head with a sledge hammer.
Try and put yourself into my shoes as you read my story.
Try and believe that my helplessness and confusion is not only possible, but completely true.
Imagine feeling that level of fear or humiliation.
If you are an addict in recovery, or in active addiction I am sure you will relate to everything in this eBook in some way.
If you are an addict in active addiction, know that I am clean for 8 years now.
I am living a life in recovery and it is a beautiful life with so much joy.
When you are finished reading this book know that if I could go through all this and get clean there is only one thing standing in your way.
That is yourself. Make your decision to change your life and get help.
If you want this but you feel helpless and overwhelmed, it starts with a simple step.
Reaching out for help.
