A Dog-Eared Review of All Drinking Aside!


 on April 24, 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase


So I probably wouldn't need my high-lighter, right? WRONG!!! The book was so good that I found myself starting to bend the corners of certain pages and finally broke down and started high-lighting many passages. Much of the book is now high-lighted in yellow.

Jim Anders tells the journey inside the mind of an alcoholic/addict from the beginnings through recovery. Whether or not you are an addict/alcoholic, we all know someone who is (often in our family). This book clears away the mystery of much that is going on.

I highly recommend it and am already thinking of people to whom I might gift it.

"Alcohol Replaced Me, Cell by Cell... "


Alcohol replaced me, cell by cell.
Until none of me was left.
Or so it seemed.
My life,
A dream within a dream within a dream.
Merrily,
Then not so merrily,
Now merrily again.

Row, Row, Row your boat
Until you can no longer float.

That's how it went.
That's how it was.
But I have lived to tell the tale.

Adjust your sail.

Without fail, 
Recovery will replace your fall from grace,
Cell by cell, alcohol will be replaced.
Your place at the table is set.

Welcome back to the Human Race.

This verse is not from All Drinking Aside, but I hope that it will serve 
as a bridge, a window and a door to what you will find there....

What Matters More?


"Nothing matters more than that we remain sober because when we remain sober everything matters more."

Tomorrow is the Apple Seed of Now


... Tomorrow is a storm coming over South Mountain.
The lightning's light will quickly reach us.
The thunder's rumble: an old man shuffling our way.
I thirst for rain, the hope for change.
I hold hope and turn it in my hand
like a hand holding and turning an apple.
Tomorrow is the apple seed of now....
