Writer/Alcoholic/Recovering –

April 5, 2019 – From the last drop to the daily struggle to keep sober, my sobriety was a gradual leveling off of emotions over time. It took a few years, not to mention a lot of support group meetings, therapy, drugs (the legal, prescription kind), religion, and good ol’ rock and roll. It took work, but it also took learning self-love. But not everyone is so lucky. There are many lives that alcoholism has utterly destroyed, or damaged beyond repair. Leslie Jamison’s “The Recovering: Intoxication and Its Aftermath” is the story of her own battle with alcoholism, and how close her life came to a miserable end because of it.
