Product Overview

Once it was normal for author Mark E to drink and take drugs. Now it is normal for him not to drink or take drugs. In this book, the concept of ''normal'' is not simply a comparison between extremes, but of the personal and evolving understanding and acceptance of normal as it applies to the individual and his or her changing relationship with alcohol and drug. The individual''s new normal involves adopting the habit of not drinking or drugging by stopping to think about potential actions and then to choose rationally rather than react due to force of habit. A refreshing examination of the human condition and how one man was able to beat the odds by redefining the meaning of normal.
