Follow John’s voyage of recovery as he navigates a myriad of adversities - some would stop people in their tracks - in efforts to become the person he always wanted to be but didn’t know how...
Beginning with a brief history of his life before recovery, he introduces the reader to a troubled man whose life is in a downward spiral. From his early use of alcohol while a sophomore in high school through his marriage to Monica, and the subsequent deterioration and failure of that relationship, he reveals all the pitfalls he ran full tilt in to.
Describing his introduction to AA, finding a sponsor, and forming relationships with others in the program, John holds nothing back. Courageously exposing his weaknesses he outlines the struggles he faced in often painful detail. Just when it seems he has made it over a bump in the road of life he is thrown an obstacle that could be his complete undoing.
Digging deeply into his soul John brings forth the thoughts and emotions that carried him forward. He concludes his story on a positive note, leaving the reader with a sense of hope. Shining a light on the sometimes unrecognized issues faced by addicts, his honesty makes this book a must read. A useful addition for any caregiver or anyone facing the battles of addiction of any kind, “What’s in it for Me? A Personal Journey of Recovery … and Hope” is a gift from one brave man. His honesty and humanity are compelling. The writing is clear and easy to understand. The story is inspiring.
