Author: Denise Cloughley    Publisher: Denise Cloghley: Seeking Solace

Caught in the clutches of addiction, Denise Cloughley knows what it's like to visit the depths of hell and stay for a while. From blackouts to forced institutionalization, her life was a maze of twists and turns that cost her nearly everything and sent her on the run from police, family, and the shady rehab facility that hunted her like a dog. With her business, family, and friends gone, there was nothing left but her addiction that threatened to permanently extinguish the light in her eyes. How can anyone survive the grip of its tentacles that pulls its victims back to the very behaviour that destroyed their happiness? Her addiction seized it all: work, families, and health. Then it threatened to take the last of what was left of her shattered life. Hundreds of millions of people are currently battling addiction worldwide. "Poured Me a Glass of Life" is an explosive expose of the ugly side of addiction rehab. In a perfect blend, she shares her life story, offers analysis of the fatal flaws of rehab, and offers inspiration and real-world advice about overcoming adversity. Whether you have suffered from addiction or love someone who has, this raw and authentic look will have you on the edge of your seat. It is painfully honest without ever been depressing, far from it. Although it describes moments of crushing desolation it is extremely engaging and beautifully written read with a direct and personable style that quite often provides laugh out loud moments. Most importantly, you will walk away from this powerful read challenged and changed. The inspiration it offers is priceless and will last long after you read it.
