Drug Dependency & Recovery

‘Giving up’ alcohol might sound daunting… But what are you actually giving up when you’re hungover on the sofa all day? Cutting out the booze can transform your life in unexpected ways.
We live in a culture that celebrates alcohol use as if it were somehow different from the drugs we place legal restrictions on.

We mark every occasion with alcohol, whether it’s a good day, bad day, new job, old job, divorce, wedding, funeral, birthday, holiday and the list goes on and on…you can always guarantee that someone, somewhere, is getting drunk… and it’s ‘normal’ to get drunk right?

Alcohol is the one drug, that if we have too much of it we are shamed for our behaviour, but if we decide not to drink, we are classed as boring. We live on a drunk planet.

Our love of alcohol is holding us back. Think about the last time you had a drink – even if you weren’t conscious of a hangover, you probably felt some effects.

Private Investigator Mysteries
The fully dimensional world of a long-running series is harder to find in a first mystery. There’s nothing tentative, though, about Vincent H. O’Neil’s debut novel, MURDER IN EXILE, which drops an engaging young sleuth into a sleepy little burg in the Florida Panhandle and hands him a tough case to cut his teeth on. Frank Cole landed in the coyly named town of Exile when his computer company up North went bankrupt and a nasty judge attached his future earnings. Frank is keeping his head down doing background checks for an insurance company when his investigation of a hit-and-run accident uncovers evidence of corporate corruption. Although you’d never guess it from the silly jacket art that makes his book look like an absurdist Carl Hiaasen knockoff, O’Neil is a polished storyteller with a breezy style and some interesting things to say about abandoned sons and their surrogate fathers.
