Finally Actually in Recovery
You guys must be talking about Dr. Drew Pinsky? His book "Cracked" is one of the best books I've ever read.
I've been an out of control alcoholic for a good 10 years. I was a full-fledged alcoholic at 22, but didn't know it. I've been going to A.A. meetings on and off for a long time, and a couple of stints in rehab, not to mention the DUI's. Nothing could get me sober, and I got up to a fifth of whiskey a day sometimes. I remember many times pouring a tumbler of whiskey at 7:00 a.m. to keep from getting sick.
After all the crap I've been through, I finally started getting sober about 8 months ago, without really trying that hard. I was using an ebook called How I Stopped Drinking by Max Fisher, and that book put me over the top. I hope the Admin doesn't mind me mentioning this, but I wanted to because nothing, and I mean nothing was working for me. It's pretty bad when you're a failure in AA! And they all know at the meetings - its like they're a bunch of mind readers.
So thats how I got sober, and I'm staying that way it looks like. A simple plan, that just worked, which was nothing less than a miracle for this hard case.
