It's funny how certain books come to you at specific points in your life. I just finished reading Dry by Augusten Burroughs - the author of Running with Scissors. This memoir chronicles the author's life during his early twenties when he was working for an advertising agency and being an alcoholic. I really like the author's writing style as well as his humor. This memoir details how Burroughs handled his alcoholism and eventually became in control of his sobriety. During my three months of sobriety (which ends tomorrow!) I've had a lot of new feelings and thoughts and have tried to understand where they come from and how I can handle them better in future situations. I know that my personal alcohol-free challenge does not compare to a serious alcoholic's struggle, but I was glad to read this book at this time. I don't have many alcoholic friends, but if I ever do, I hope I can view their circumstance with more care than I probably would have in the past.
