My new memoir 'Blotto: Adventures in Alcoholism / Ruin to Recovery' chronicles my life as an alcoholic; growing up in an alcoholic home in Chicago, trying to make it as a writer/director in Hollywood, and my struggles to get and stay sober. I wrote the book because I had to. For over thirty years I have been telling these stories to family, friends, and at AA meetings. So many people have suggested that I write the stories down. I have been dying to do just that, and now, finally, with some time on my hands, I've been able to accomplish that.
I will be blogging some excerpts from the book. I believe it's quite entertaining, but my main mission was to create a work that would be helpful and encouraging to those dealing with alcoholism/addiction. It's a monstrous affliction, and we need all the help we can get.
