About me

Gender MALE
Location New England
Introduction In 2012, I published, "The Privileged Addict". The story tracks my descent into chronic drug addiction and the crippling depressions that ensued during periods of sobriety. I wrote this book to detail the specific set of spiritual actions that changed me forever. I felt compelled to illuminate the truth about addiction, the flaws in conventional treatment programs, and how AA has split into two different programs. More importantly, I wanted to describe exactly what I did to become recovered. Achieving physical sobriety alone is essentially useless. No offense, but what is the point of getting sober only to fight and struggle through each day, chained inside our twisted, self-absorbed minds? An addict must change from deep within, ridding himself of the poison that has brought him down, warped his mind, and destroyed all things precious in life. In the end, he or she may need spiritual help beyond the scope of human aid.
