Mark Holmes has completed his new book “Alcohol: The Slow Kill”: a captivating memoir detailing the author’s struggles with alcohol addiction and his new lease on life discovered after becoming sober and living without substances.

“I appreciate you taking time out of your life to read about the craziness that was mine,” writes Holmes. “I can’t describe it as exciting or wild, and to use the expression ‘those were the days’ could be taken the wrong way because that expression is usually said when people are reminded of events, or situations with a smile, and would use the full expression ‘Those were the good old days.’

“However, my life back then, the decisions I made, and actions I took were not ones that made me smile, nor do I consider them ‘the good old days.’ If I were to sum up my life and lifestyle back then, the word would be sad; therefore, ‘those were sad old days.’”

Holmes continues, “I love my life now. There is no feeling better than this freedom from alcohol and marijuana; to wake up and go to sleep in my right mind, to spend my money on food and clothes; going out listening to music, festivals, and just being out—this feeling, living in this type of freedom, instead of the box or cage addictions keep you in is a feeling, such a difference. I mean, wow, it’s just a beautiful thing. Please, do not die from that without experiencing this.”

Published by Page Publishing, Mark Holmes’s enlightening tale follows Holmes as he recounts his darkest days, and the light at the end of the tunnel as he fought for sobriety. Originally written as a private testimonial for his loved ones to explain the struggles he’s faced that affected his relationships with others, Holmes shares his story with the world to help readers who find themselves in similar positions that need the encouragement to heal and grow.

Readers who wish to experience this poignant work can purchase “Alcohol: The Slow Kill” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
