The Addiction Manifesto by J R Weaver was published by Palmetto Publishing on 6 July 2021.
Today I have a short extract to share with you.
My story is filled with ugly memories of times when I tried to fight back but ended up in the same place. Addiction knows that all it had to do is wait patiently for us to do that next “hit,” and we are right back to doing its ugly bidding. I am a guy who needed help but didn’t know how to ask for help. Being a veteran, I wasn’t accustomed to showing weakness, so I bottled up everything, and my life soon revolved around alcohol and drugs. I lost control and was stuck in a never-ending, self-destructive cycle that was going to kill me if I didn’t change.
