My name is Bill H., and I'm, well...complicated! Clinically, I'm a recovering drug addict-with Attention Deficit Disorder to boot-who, after twenty-two years of consuming a plethora of mind-bending toxins, Is very much grateful to be alive. In 1996, Bill recognized a problem with drugs and alcohol, and subsequently checked himself into a treatment center. As a result, Bill, In a volunteer capacity, taught weekly classes on recovery for ten years at the rehab center that helped him to help himself. Having personally worked with approximately eight thousand patients in recovery, he provided Twelve-Step based support and teachings to those in need. One of the objectives of this book is to incorporate into the mainstream the author's understanding of the Twelve-Step Program of Recovery. Although this book was written from the perspective of a recovering addict, The reality is that you don't have to be a drug addict or alcoholic to benefit from a spiritual pilgrimage that has led millions to peace of mind-from desperation and despair, To hope and then Serenity. After all, The only difference between the people of 'mainstream America' and those with addiction(s) are the ways in which they handle their problems. Peace of mind resides within these pages. This book is Bill's effort to reach out and, through lessons learned from his own experiences, help those in need find their way to Sobriety, Sanity and Serenity. Through his teachings and stories (some funny, some not so funny), The author hopes to touch every emotion, and perhaps feelings you didn't know you had.
