A Million Little Pieces

One thing that I can do now that I love is read. I love just sitting down in my chair and reading. I also like reading about addiction and what people went/are going though.

Right now I am reading A Million Little Pieces By James Frye.

Although I know that it is a true story but there are some parts that he "fibbed about" this book is a good read if you want to see into an addicts mind when they are going though recovery in the start.

Note: Not all addicts are alike. Some of these guys feelings that he shares might not be how another addict in recovery feels, but it some stuff does ring true to me.

One thing that I do not like about this book so far, I am only half way though it, his is view on 12 steps and a higher power. But that is only because I am where I am. I know that in the beginning I had more or less the same views on the 12 steps. NOT on my higher power, I always believed in him and had faith that he was real.

The more I read this book, they more I keep hoping that he "get's it" and figures out that the 12 steps really help and that he needs a higher power. I don't know if he will or not, I guess I won't find that out until the end. But I am still routing for him.

Anyways it is Friday and I am sooooooooooo very glad, I am ready for the weekend.

I hope everyone out there has a great weekend!

  1. I read that book a few years back... before my son's addiction to heroin. That was my only frame of reference when my son announced his addiction to us three years ago. It's one person's story... but it gave me an idea of what my son was up against. I didn't care if there were a few fibs, he got his story out... and that was important.
