Eric Thompson – Author of Addiction Studies

My name is Eric. I’m 27 years old, and I am a recovering addict. My journey with drugs and alcohol began when I was 15. When I was 25, I had a nearly fatal overdose of cocaine. I knew something had to change in my life. So I woke up the next day and checked myself into a rehab program. That program completely changed my life. It changed my perspective, it changed my outlook, and it changed the way I related to other people and myself.

Ever since then, I have been involved in 12-step meetings, and now I even have three sponsees in Alcoholics Anonymous. Now that I am sober, I want to dedicate my life to helping other addicts and alcoholics achieve sobriety as well. That is why I started this website.

On this website, I intend to provide valuable information for all of our visitors. If you are an addict or alcoholic, do not despair. There is a way out. And I promise you, you are strong enough to make it.
