How To Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Sobriety isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey, one with which J.P. Willson is all too familiar. In How to Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic, Willson is eager to offer whatever insights he can for those embarking on the same road. This memoir examines how his addiction contributed to and informed some of the choices and behaviours that ultimately led him to Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.
Make no mistake, however; though it contains its fair share of hard truths and regrets, this is not a sob story and does not wallow in what might have been. Instead this is a story of success and redemption through hard work.
His first book, Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery, was about getting sober. This book is about something much harder: staying there.
Written while working as a chef at the Salvation Army Harbour Light Addiction and Recovery Rehabilitation Centre, it is a testament both to what is possible with the right mindset—and what is all too probable without it.
