Lee A. Eide, lost his wife of 19+ years to alcoholism, and who nearly died when he quit drinking cold-turkey, uses the tragic fall of Walter White in “Breaking Bad” as inspiration and to provide insight about the nature of addiction and recovery
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, September 10, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Author Lee A. Eide will be releasing “The (Breaking) Bad Path to Enlightenment and Sobriety”, a sequel to his first self-help book, on November 24, 2017, via Smashwords, Inc. Pre-orders for the eBook, which will sell for $1.99, can be made on Apple iBooks, B & N, Gardners, Kobo, OverDrive, and Scribd.
Author Eide says, “The Bad Path to Enlightenment and Sobriety” is a compilation of all the Breaking Bad-related blog posts published on my “Join the Spiritual Evolution: Live Beyond Your Ego” blog at http://sobrietybytamingyourego.wordpress.com. That is my favorite regular TV series ever although Archer is an incredibly close second.
I streamed every “Bad” episode of the series on my old iPhone over the course of about 2 1/2 months. In each post, after recapping the plot, I show how Walter White’s actions illustrate the theme and principles in my first self-help book. About two years after publishing my last “bad” post, it occurred to me that I probably had a book’s worth of material. So I compiled all the posts and sure enough, there were around 345 pages.”
In a nutshell, the book is a how-to guide to stay or get sober by learning from Walter White’s mistakes throughout the epic “Breaking Bad” series. A Shakespearean tragedy framed in modern terms is used to promote sobriety and a clean lifestyle. Entertainment, inspiration and enlightenment all in one book.
Praise for the author’s other books:
“Overcome Any Personal Obstacle…” is a wise book that taps into philosophies about the seven sins and the ego in relation to beating alcoholism and becoming happier. It is a unique approach to healing an addiction or any ego-related issue by looking within and determining how your ego is getting in the way of living your life serenely.
Eide shares his profound experiences as a recovered alcoholic and his knowledge gained over the years. Enough experience turns a person into an expert, and Eide is no exception. He discovered what allowed him to understand his illness and conquer alcoholism…and it wasn’t just the 12 steps of “Alcoholics Anonymous.” It involved understanding how the ego plays a part in keeping an alcoholic in the throes of addiction.
In this book, Eide covers the topic of the ego, shares his personal experiences and expertise of recovering from alcohol addiction, and shows how faith and religion come into play in understanding how to find serenity.
I recommend this book to anyone who is unhappy with their current state of being, because it will help free you from the hold of your ego. And if you suffer from alcoholism, this book may be the key that unlocks the door to your new life of sobriety.
