Hello I’m Jerry, recovering addict, I wrote this book to help me stay sober but realized if it could help a hopeless addict like me then it could help others too. I have been blessed with another chance at life and so can you. I have tried to break down the addiction matrix, how addiction affects your mind and the common tricks it uses to keep you in active addiction. We all know how dangerous that sweet voice of addiction can be, we have listened to it over and over again with the same disastrous results. For me, the hardest step was to admit I was a addict and powerless once my body tasted a drug. I have broke down things that are helping me stay sober but we are all wired differently so you must find what works for you. Addiction wants your soul and it will destroy your life if you let it. Thank you for reading this and I really hope it helps on your own path to recovery. It will also shed some light on addiction if you have a friend or family member suffering from addiction.

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am new to Smashwords but I am hoping it helps me get my book, The Addiction Manifesto, out to the masses where it can help people find the way!!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Helping others!! I write in my spare time as part of my own personal recovery plan, so helping others actually helps me stay sober, thank you!!
This book is dedicated to the still suffering addicts struggling to find a way to beat their substance abuse addictions. This is my story on how I learned to resist the sweet, seductive voice of addiction and remain sober. I have bounced between the streets and jails for the last 20 years trying to control something that will not be controlled. I try to break down the addiction 'matrix' for you
