30 Years of Heavy Recovery

Welcome to my autiobiographical novel with a long working title I won’t repeat again.

This is my story, based on primary sources, mostly my journal, some paperwork, and the calendar. I call it a novel because I remember what happened to James Frey and A Million Little Pieces. I’m also fictionalizing enough to protect other people’s privacy. For instance, when it comes to my wife, the character won’t be anything like my wife.

This will be a long work, covering from 1992 to 2022, though the book will end narrative around 2014, when some serious shit hit the fan. I figured out that most of what I saw and experienced up to that point was incorrect, but you’ll have to read to the end to figure out what I mean.

It’s gonna be rough reading, in the sense that when I post each chapter, it will be a second-draft, at best. If this project works out, I’ll re-edit and re-write as needed, but that’s a ways off from now.

I do promise that everything I describe in this actually happened. But places/names/dates will be altered, again to protect both the innocent. And the guilty…

Recovery and treatment can tend to protect newcomers…
