until we were totally broken we didn't ask for help


The Courage to Surrender


...Do not go where the path may lead...Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.            Ralph Waldo Emerson

One book review from Bookplex explained that my story is more than a memoir of an alocholic and drug addict when she said in part:
...If you have a dependency on alcohol and/or drugs or if you have a family member or friend who needs a guiding hand, this book is recommended reading... it puts a new light of perspective on the reason an alcoholic would hesitate to seek help. After the book, I felt a different compassion for those who are fighting daily to stay sober...
