In an age of tell-all addiction memoirs and reality television programs, we gulp down the stories of others in the hope that we, too, can be overcomersa€“even as we continue to love a person, substance, activity, or ideology too much. As Sharon Hersh writes, a€œWe all suffer from the same condition.a€ In The Last Addiction, she explores why we are prone to addictiona€“to make one thing in our lives more central than it should bea€“and how we can break free of our compulsions. This is not a book of a€œself-helpa€ answers or a€œhow-toa€ steps. It is a book about falling down and getting up again, about realizing that we need more than ourselves to be saved. The truth is, wea€™re not as bad as we think we area€“and we are worse than we ever dreamed. When we live between those two realities, we are ready to let go of the last idol: the belief that we can save ourselves. The Last Addiction invites you to see your own story more clearly as you better understand your longing for intimacy. It invites you to love boldly and receive love in return. It invites you to the freedom of redemption. From the Trade Paperback edition.... a D that my son received on an essay in language arts, an essay that I wrote! I had to tell my audience that counseling is always hard work, and it was a difficult season at that time. I had recently lost two of my dear young clients to cancer.
