Welcome to Out of the Woods! This blog accompanies my new book about long-term recovery and the joy, humor, ongoing growth and of course, even new struggles that come with recovery after years ten, 20, 30 and more.
What you’ll find here and in the book Out of the Woods—published by Central Recovery Press—is something very different in the world of recovery. There have been many books written about how to begin recovery and what early recovery is like. But what I have found –and maybe you too—is that something really are different after 10 or twenty or thirty years.
Please join me here for an ongoing discussion on my book. I guarantee you’ll laugh, think, nod your head and sure, sometimes disagree. But we’ll be talking about things you may not hear in the rooms. For example, in “Out of the Woods,” I write about sponsorship after twenty years, what service means in and out of the rooms, and how does long-term recovery manifest in dating, relationships, marriage and your sex life.
So join me here starting tomorrow for a peek inside. We’ll have fun. (And if you are an over-achiever, or just impatient—go ahead and order the book from CPR or your local bookstore. But come back here for some bonus content and many surprises.)
All the best,
