“To co-create a green and harmonious world, through laughter and love, bringing a better quality of life to others”.

The book reads in 5 parts:

  • ADDICTION – the early years
  • ADDICTION – the later years
  • ADDICTION – the dying years
  • RECOVERY – Rehab & the early years
  • RECOVERY – Onwards & Upwards

Which, very briefly can be summarised in 3 stages:

  • my story into and along through my addiction
  • what I did to stop and more importantly, how I stayed stopped
  • the magical results that have occurred in my life since I got sober and begun helping others

There is a formal explanation of the 12 step programme at the end of the book as a reference tool and resource for those looking for a deeper understanding of the process I underwent and recovered through.

If any of the topics I’ve discussed within my book have affected you and you want some sort of help for yourself or a family member, first of all visit www.sober-services.com and then Contact Me

So if you’re in a place of hopelessness or you know of someone unable to break their debilitating patterns of behaviour, you could get some significant help and ideas towards recovery from this book, whilst having a good laugh at my expense along the way.

Please remember that although the book has a serious life story, with some horrific moments, I have also shared many of the more heart warming moments and positive experiences which I’ve experienced, and told them with laughter and love.

So if you’ve decided you want to hear more, and you’re serious about improving the quality of your own life, please have a good look around this site, or, if you have an addiction specific situation, visit www.soberservices.co.uk and make contact.

Ian does have a 'special' if somewhat 'mad' story to tell. I believe he is right with his hope that he will inspire others to 'get clean' as well as give support to people who may care for an addicted loved one. His style is easy and unpretentious, as if he is chatting to you in a room. He gives enormous insight into his mind and why drugs and alcohol became such an important part of his life-many will identify with his thought processes. For all the extensive descriptions about the 'colourful', 'crazy' and 'chaotic' episodes during his addictive years, I found the sections on 'realization' and 'recovery' the most interesting and compelling. He knew when the 'game was finally over' and he had to choose between life and death. But the recognition, recovery and reformation took enormous courage,struggle and time - the heart of the inspiration in the book. Knowing that there are strategies, help and guidance available, will give strength to others determined to follow a similar positive route to Ian. A book well worth reading.

I know Ian personally and this book doesn't begin to tell half the story. A helpless, hopeless addict that has found redemption by taking simple suggestions, following a new spiritual path and attempting to help others. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince, you'll shake your head in disbelief but I guarantee that you'll be rooting for Ian to clean up. A wonderful story with a very happy ending. Read it - more will be revealed... Spencer (One of "the tribe") x

Love this book! I liked it so much I've got another 2 copies to give to Friends.

Mary Moss

Wonderful book which gives an great insight into the mind of how addictions affect all parts of the mind body and spirit. This book is great for anyone, even those people who do not think they have addictions, because the information is also for people who may have bad habits and are trying to break them, like eating too much sugar - big macs etc. Also found Ian openness of how he found his spirtual guidance to change his life 360 degrees, is a message we all need.

Well written, easy to read and I should imagine very helpful and inspiring to anyone who's suffering
