    1. It is an important tenet of your sobriety to remember always and forever that you are marked, that there is no cure for your affliction One drink triggers the craving, and once the craving is on you re off and running next stop the dope man s house Beating the physical part of addiction is a cake walk compared to silencing that voice in your head, the one that never goes away, telling you it s okay to have a drink, a line or a pill, because you ve been clean and sober for a while Because you can [...]

    4. At first glance I thought this book was going to be a bit out of my ordinary reading material, however as I began reading it I realized I had read quite a few other books like this one, not all true stories as in this one, but about similar issues This book and its numerous stories did catch my attention and draw it in Some of the stories really pulled me in and I found myself intrigued and yet wondering how addiction really works How people continue to do these things to themselves, well the fa [...]


    5. Writers On The Edge is filled with emotional and eye opening stories from people in first person First person is when they write about themselves, which is often hard to do, especially when it deals with addictions As with any addiction, one can never be 100% recovered There is going to be a little demon or often real life demon people who try to break ones strength After reading quite a few of the various authors stories, I understand how difficult it was for them to sit down and write One way [...]


    6. Writers on the Edge 22 Writers Speak About Addiction and Dependency edited by Diana M Raab and James Brown is a collection of essays, memories, poems, and stories about addiction and dependency, but than that they are harrowing experiences of surviving with addiction and dependency and the continuous struggle that dogs these writers throughout their lives Most, if not all, of these essays are frank and honest about the vacillation between lying about an addiction and being honest about it and c [...]

    8. I would recommend this to anybody who has ever had to deal with an addiction of any kind, even those who were ever a part of an addicts life This book will open your eyes and really start to make some sense as to why, how, what, and who I believe we all have an addiction of some sort, and whether you want to accept how it takes a part of your life, and affects others around you, it really does Of course, not everybody has a drug addiction, neither do the people in this book I am fascinated by th [...]


    9. Addictions come in so many varied and frightening forms, but at heart there is such a sad sameness to them There are some really strong pieces in this collection, a few of which I m going to remember for a very long time.





    10. It s always hard to rate an anthology there are some five star contributions in this book Definitely worth reading.
