1st draft April 7, 2011 1133

I’m writing the book in three phases for two reasons. I’m writing the book to focus my thoughts as I think and explore my reasons for addiction and recovery. I’ve found that for me writing about what’s on my mind helps me to learn about myself and move forward in my life.

As much as anyone involved with addiction whether because of personal addiction, a family member in addiction or a professional that is in contact with addiction would wish for one thing. A way to help an addict realize their addiction and recovery from that active addiction. However we’ve all realized that this is probably not possible. So I hope eventually I might write a book that could offer comfort, insight and anecdotes to the recovering addict, their families, friends and anyone interested in learning about addiction.
