From the book: Living sober is against instinct. We've learned to live drunk, high, and wasted. The way you act in a crack house is t the way you act at the DMV. What we've learned in order to protect ourselves, our possessions, and our stash is t helpful to the rest of our lives; actually, acting these ways will ruin our lives. Stories heal, and Bucky Sinister, sober since February 19th, 2002, and a veteran of the punk rock and spoken word scene, brings the stories from the trenches about how to get sober, stay sober, and live sober. Still Standing is about the stories that heal you, and the hard times that don't kill you. Sinister goes beyond the 12-steps with stories from the misfits, freaks, and weirdos that have come to recovery from a variety of backgrounds--tattoo artists, bartenders, musicians to help answer the What Now? question of living sober. Topics include: 10 Things Every New Recovering Addict Should Have; Prayer and the Atheist; Job Interviews; and Ways Addicts Can Be of Service to Normies.
