"I have read "All Drinking Aside" twice now, and look for different excerpts and meditations daily. Jim's clever conception of alter egos, as if anyone or alcoholic knows, an alcoholic has many, is genius at least. Some of the heart felt stories and the great lengths Jim has gone for recovery, shows what sobriety means to him. Substitute any vice for alcohol, out of the book, and anyone can apply some of the principles Jim has to offer, in their daily lives. This book has helped me in many ways, to help maintain my own sobriety, and how to continue to grow as a person. I related to many of Jim's character flaws and the depth he went to go to climb out of the pit of despair. I do not look at this book as just a recovery book, but a self help book for all to benefit from. Very well written and composed !!"
