Product description

Review

Mind on Fire is an intelligently written account of a successful businessman’s struggle toward abstinence. His relentless search for a new meaning and identity in a life without alcohol pushes him way out of his comfort zone. Philip Muls takes the reader with him on a truly authentic journey full of ups and downs. I can therefore recommend Mind on Fire to anyone in search of a guide on the way to sobriety.”

— MYRIAM BRUYNINCKX, PSYCHOTHERAPIST & ALCOHOL EXPERT BY EXPERIENCE

Product Description

FINALIST 2018 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARD
2018 LIVING NOW BOOK AWARD FINALIST
          Philip Muls already had been through rehab three different times. If he didn't give up drinking this time, he surely would come face-to-face with death and lose the battle. In his mid-forties, with a wife, two children, and a high-powered job that kept him traveling the world, he was not ready for the inevitable. He wanted to live.
           Muls relates his arduous ascent to the apex of sobriety in his memoir MIND ON FIRE: A Case of Successful Addiction Recovery. His tale is told through Peter Baer, Muls' alter-ego who grapples with the existential angst that almost all recovering addicts experience. As Baer's journey unfolds, the reasons for his descent into alcoholism become apparent.  His relationship with his mother. His first experience with alcohol. His need for control. His life-threatening car crash in Bangkok. His unexpected encounter with a holy man in India. 
          After leaving rehab, Baer begins to resolve issues that have caused the incredible inner conflict only alcohol seems to mitigate. He works closely with a talented therapist, the second narrator of the book, whose support becomes essential during his trek to the summit. 
          MIND ON FIRE is an important book that offers hope, encouragement, and practical guidance to those ensnared in the grip of addiction. Whether the addiction involves alcohol, opioids, heroin, cocaine, or gambling, addicts, and their loved ones will glean understanding and strengthen their resolve as they pursue the path toward recovery.
