For you Australians who’ve just come to visit this site, thanks for your interest! I’ve taken about a three-week break from blogging, but I’ll post again very soon. Meanwhile, you might want to catch up with some of the topics we’ve tossed back and forth on the blog. We’ve had some excellent dialogues, but will be moving on to new territory. Also, check out the Guest Memoirs page, and feel free to send me yours if you feel like contributing.
The site was first launched as publicity for my book. But now the blog has taken on a life of its own. Our main topic is addiction, obviously, and recovery, and the variety of paths to recovery. But there’s also a science undercurrent, and I try to touch on a neuroscience perspective in most of my posts. The neuroscience of addiction is a key interest of mine (having been both an addict and a neuroscientist), and the blog has been invaluable for me to link it up with real life.
For all readers, Happy New Year!!! I’m looking forward to more posts and more of the in-depth dialogues we’ve had in the past. More soon…
