Product Details
Whether addicted or not, we all have stories to tell

The stories of tragedy and redemption
found within Tales of Addiction are not about the well known celebrities you
find in the usual tabloids. Rather, these stories are true-grit tales told by people you will
never meet but whose words will haunt you for months, years maybe. The author collected
the stories for over two years through a "call for stories" she put in journals, workshops
and lectures. Interwoven throughout, Barbara and her son share their own story of pain
and struggle. In this book, you'll learn:

  • How an addict's life begins
  • Understand the difficulties in taking initial steps to uncover denial
  • Intimate details of how many stay straight and sober
  • Gain a new perspective about our national addiction population
  • Learn why that Something More means so much to so many
  • What happens when the addict or alcoholic loses their battle
  • How you can help
