Hello  and Welcome Friends in Recovery,


So, where do I begin, as my last was Jan 2016, and so much has been going on. I had been writing articles for Addicted Minds treatment directory, but ended up giving that up because I was hired by a premier recovery magazine called; In Recovery Magazine - The Bookstand ... I write a column titled; "The Author's Cafe" and handle all the recovery author interviews. I also find great recovery books and authors who write them to advertise their book, films, and Apps into our mag. It has been a fun experience thus far and my first column debuted last month. AND? My first author, I interviewed and wrote about? It is Mr. Arnie Wexler and his New Book,  Arnie Wexler, All Bets Are OFF ...



It was an Honor to have Arnie as we all know he and Shelia have helped many from gambling addiction! I am also a new article writer for a fantastic recovery newspaper as well. Over at Keys To Recovery newspaper... It is a free publication for all recovery people to enjoy and has so much helpful info in it. I am also putting the finishing touch's on my second book, but I still am having a hard time with a working title still. My current book out, Addicted To Dimes, Confessions of a Liar and a Cheat is still selling 
really well. I am so happy as it really gives readers an in-depth look at how gambling addiction can devastate people's lives.

Here is my most recent Amazon 5-star review and this reader really "got" why I wrote my book.


Book
Review:

Brave and Honest"

on June 29, 2016
Addicted to Dimes was a very real and painful history of what it is like to lose yourself to an addiction. The hard road thru recovery and finding out what caused her to be broken in the first place. I felt sad for the criticized daughter that had lost her self-worth. The story is not a chance to blame other people for the addiction but a chance to explain that all of the internal and outer conflicts worked together to cause what she called the perfect storm.

Catherine is quick to offer helpful advice to those suffering from this type of addiction or any addiction at all.

I felt for Catherine and Tom, for their marriage that struggled during this time and for the strength they had to work through it.
The writing was obviously painful to rehash the history that led to the bad decisions and the hurtful deterioration of her family life. It is a brave thing to put this out there for strangers to read and hopefully not judge too harshly her honesty.

I give the writing a 5-star rating because the story does draw you in and allows you into the most private moments and feelings of a dysfunctional family and the lasting effects of that past. I am glad that when Catherine wrote this she was in a stable part of her recovery and is an outgoing champion for others that are on the road to recovery   "A much-needed book and highly suggest this one!"


I am very proud of this review. I am also "humbled and grateful" that I have not received anything lower than s 4-Stars. What an AWESOME Legacy to
leave behind for all those who suffer or will suffer from this cunning disease called: "Addicted Compulsive Gambling" ....  Please stop my recovery blog for MORE helpful advice and resources if you or a loved one struggles with gambling. "Gambling Addiction Is Real - Recovery Starts Here"
