What is the power of alcohol?  Are you caught up in its power and allure?  Do you know when drinking is enough but you can't stop?  Is it a genetic disposition, a need for drink to live each day or to be socially acceptable?  How can you exist in this world of alcohol on every corner and served at every event when you know that you are not able to stop drinking but you must to save your life?  Even after you do all the right things to help yourself, is there a stigma that just won't leave your history?  What then?

Scott Stevens, journalist and author of Adding Fire to the Fuel, which tells how to live through the stigma of alcoholism and have the life you can create.  There are many challenges, but when these challenges present, it is further healing to let others know and share how to become a wave of healthy people rising above any shame that drinking may have had in the past.  Life is meant to be lived for what is going on today and not judged by the events of the past.  You can survive and thrive after decades of alcohol use in excess and get back to the life you dreamed of.
