This is the story of the life struggles, joy and hope of KJ Nivin (pseudonym), author of the 12 Step workbook recovery series, that range from alcoholism to compulsive debting and sexual addiction. Nivin was born into a family system riddled with alcoholism, prescription drug addiction, sexual addiction, and compulsive pauperism. This is about the making of a sex addict / alcoholic and how growing up in his family plagued by drinking, codependency, womanizing, and atheism shaped the life of a child to relive what he had witnessed. His genetic predisposition to addiction and his out of control environment assured he would follow the foot steps of his father. He almost followed them to the grave. Nivin shares his 12 Step program as it developed and where he is w in recovery. He explains his 12 Step philosophy and how he integrated them into his daily life that led him to becoming a world published author and sought after speaker about addiction. He speaks about sponsorship and the importance of being sponsored as well and becoming a sponsor for those still suffering form the affects of addiction. In the beginning of his autobiography KJ Nivin presents a story of The Master and the Camel that illustrates the process of recovery and what recovery is about. This heart felt confession is an example to all who learn that: We do t regret the past r wish to shut the door on it.
