The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.—Mark Twain
In my first year of recovery I read 22 books. The list of books was given to a new comer in hopes of offering to him, what was so freely given to me. Today, I almost wish I still had that list, but many of those books are listed here, along with some of my thoughts. The ODAAT Chat Podcast will be covering all these books and adding many as we go along.
To this day, 22 years later, I always have a stack of books by my bedside along with a journal, a pen and a pair of glasses. 😉 As we fill our minds and inspire our hearts with the wisdom of those who come before us, we give ourselves a fighting chance to overcome addiction by healing the unseen wounds.
I hope this these books bring you as much healing and happiness that they have brought me.
Peace & Love,
