A personal account of one man's struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. The writer tells this story in the narrative form, using references from literature and statistics to compound his story. After a brief introduction, the paper tells of the experience of becoming an addict and the aftermath and consequences of this time period. The writer includes reflective observations on those around him experiencing similar pains and then offers an insight into the treatment and recovery program.

From the Paper:

"I can sometimes tell which people are going to accept the AA program most readily and make good use of it. Certainly people who are at the very bottom are likely candidates, like a friend of mine whose wife left him with the children. He had nothing and he was willing to try anything to put his life back together. At the same time, I am not infallible. There are people I would never have thought would obtain sobriety who have now been sober for many years."
