The Happy Addict made it to the Best Drug Addiction Books of All Time


I'm delighted to announce that my book, "The Happy Addict: How to be Happy in Recovery from Alcoholism or Drug Addiction", has just won an award!

It was named one of BookAuthority's Best Drug Addiction Books of All

Books by Russell Brand, Noah Levine, Dr Gabor Mate, James Frey, Carlton Erickson Ph.D and Mackenzie Phillips joined mine on the list of the 42 Best Drug Addiction Books of All Time, so I'm in pretty good company!

And it's not one of those "fake awards" that you pay to enter or receive your award. I didn't even know I'd won until I was notified.

BookAuthority collects and ranks the best books in the world, based on dozens of different signals, including public mentions, recommendations, ratings, sentiment, popularity and sales history. The website has been featured on CNN, Forbes and Inc.

People who recommended books for the list included Demi Lovato and James Altucher.

It really is humbling to get this kind of recognition. After all, I'm just a recovering alcoholic who wanted to help others find a recovery as happy as mine has been.


But it's also an honour to know that my book has touched and helped so many people.Happy Addict_front_cover
