A Year Without Substance is a unique book, written from the perspective of a recovering addict as he battles with the ups and downs of the first year clean. Andrew Sullivan provides the reader with an achingly honest and detailed analysis of the inner workings of an addict’s mind, and the changes that take place when the addict begins to recover.
A Year Without Substance has one overarching goal, and that is to explain the day-to-day issues and opportunities as they are confronted during recovery so that addicts, people in recovery, family and friends of addicts, and indeed-those just interested in understanding more about the disease of addiction can gain invaluable insight.
Recovery is a lifelong journey, but the first year throws up a multitude of seemingly imponderable problems. But there are ways to confront these problems, and there is also great reward to be had, and A Year Without Substance provides a map to help navigate the twists and turns.
