Your Quit Addiction Story

I am the wasted guy on the right. This is how I got every night – with friends or alone – 16 years blacked out. Click picture to see the book.

Most of my life I have ran into distractions from my true self which later formed into addictions.

When I was 8 I started rocking back and forth on the floor while watching the Muppets with my parents – 37 years later I am still looking to stopping it.

When I was 17, I discovered the illusory power of alcohol.

After 80 lost jobs, 8 girlfriends, and a heart-attack at 32, I finally quit drinking 10 years ago.

I am looking for original, personal, raw stories of how people overcome their addiction.

I am looking for your story. . .
