My book is only a few weeks away from final edit and publication. My hope is, if you are battling this insidious disease, somewhere in the pages, you will find something to which you can relate. Remember you are not alone in battling these demons. Not everyone will succeed but you can, if you are ready to do so. There are no half steps. I urge you to spend some time with the people at Alcoholics Anonymous if for no other reason than to get a good foundation on which to base your recovery. You will hear many slogans such as: “keep the plug in the jug”, “one day at a time”, “don’t enter the lion’s den unless you are a lion tamer” and my favorite “keep it simple”.  These are more than slogans. Let them be warning signs as you struggle to contain and control the constant search for euphoria you will endure in the early going. This disease is insidious and will never relax its attempt to lure you back, but you must remain strong if you ever hope to enjoy everything life has to offer. It worked for me and it can work for you if you are truly tired of being sick and tired”.
