Product Information


Much of Mark Mehigan's twenties read like a how-to manual: How to get very drunk without raising people's suspicions you might be an alcoholic. Outwardly successful, inside he was drowning.

Nearing 30, he was hurtling towards a nervous breakdown and using payday loans to fund a burgeoning cocaine habit. His only choice was to finally relinquish control and ask for help. In doing so he discovered a life beyond his wildest dreams.

This new way of life embraced letting stuff go. Giving things up. He discovered the power of rigorous honesty, how to live without relying on destructive behavioural patterns and the joy of letting people in instead of keeping them out.

Mark's story is one of recovery and sobriety. It brilliantly articulates the societal pressures that can leave people feeling isolated and lost, and offers a path to finding your own sense of 'good enough'. Perhaps Mark's story can be the spark that ignites that journey for you, or at the very least a guide on how not to mess up your life. Either way, it's definitely not a self-help book.
