Picture of LifeRing Secular Recovery Book: Humanly Possible

Share Your Story!

Call for story submissions!

Our most recent book, Humanly Possible, published  in 2019, is filled with stories written by people who have recovered from addiction in a secular way. Some of the stories are up to 5000 words long and go into great detail about the personal history of their authors. 

It has been suggested that we should publish a second volume - this time with mini stories - that could easily be read in a few minutes. Stories of this size could accommodate the needs of people who have a short time for reading, but can nonetheless be inspired by learning about other people's experience in secular recovery.

I would like to suggest that authors of these mini stories focus on the  turning point in their stories: that  moment when there was a change of direction in their paths -- from addiction to recovery. I have included the story of a turning point of mine here  as an example. But this is merely a suggestion. If you have a story about a different time in your recovery that was important to you, please submit it.

To  make a book-sized collection, we will need at least 150 stories of one  or two pages each: between 250 and 300 words per page.
