Lisa Smith was a bright, young lawyer at a prestigious firm in NYC in the early nineties when alcoholism started to take over her life. What was once a way of escaping her insecurity and negativity became a means of coping with the anxiety and stress of an impossible workload. Girl Walks Out of a Bar is Smith's darkly comic and wrenchingly honest story of her formative years, the decade of alcohol and drug abuse, divorce, and her road to recovery. Smith describes how her spiraling circumstances conspired with her predisposition to depression and self-medication, nurturing an environment ripe for addiction to flourish. Girl Walks Out of a Bar is a candid portrait of alcoholism through the lens of gritty New York realism. Beneath the façade of success lies the reality of addiction.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had to be at work in two hours, so I had to get some wine. I inched out of bed and walked naked toward the kitchen, my stomach lurched with the undeniable rumble of rising vomit, and I dashed to the bathroom with my hand pressed against my mouth. I vomited violently and then sprawled out across the cold tile floor. #2 I felt sicker than usual. My head was heavier and murkier. I could feel the anxiety in my guts and bones. I was going to die, I thought. I had killed myself. I called my ex-boyfriend, Mark, and asked for help. #3 I was finally going to do something about my life. I needed to go to detox or rehab for alcohol or something, but I didn’t know what to do or where to go. I called my doctor and explained that I was drinking all the time and getting sick. He suggested two hospitals that would accept my insurance for detoxification treatment. #4 I had to tell my parents that I was an alcoholic, and I was afraid they would not support me if they knew the truth. I was afraid that if they knew I was an alcoholic, they would view me as weak and untrustworthy.

Narratives of Addiction: Savage Usury is the first book to argue, in the face of more than a century’s received wisdom, that drug addiction and alcoholism are undoubtedly evidence of individual moral flaws. However, the sense of morality that underlies this book is completely severed from Christianity. Instead, it is influenced in particular by the writings of the nineteenth-century German philosophers Arthur Schopenhauer and Frederick Nietzsche, both of whom insisted that a genuine morality was actually incompatible with Christianity. The sequence of chapters moves from addictions on the streets, into rehab clinics, and finally into the meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. This is the first book to argue that the search for pleasure drives alcoholism and drug addiction and not the “numbing of pain”. Throughout the book I reject the claims of the medical profession, as embodied by the American Medical Association, that drug addiction and alcoholism are diseases, and further argue that they do not have the authority to tell hundreds of millions of Americans that addiction is not a moral failing. I also query throughout the book the claims of neuroscience, psychology, and the social sciences that addictions to alcohol and drugs are attributable to causes that their specific disciplines are best suited to understand. I argue that there is nothing complex about addiction: it is a simple behavioural disorder. The language routinely employed to discuss addiction is similarly not complex, just confused, and so it is also the rhetoric of addiction discourse, especially its use of simile, metaphor and euphemism, that this book evaluates.

From bus rides to bars, to encounters with friends and family and most importantly with strangers, Larry Gross lives his life out loud by drawing on the small slices of life, the little things most people don’t notice. “There is no artifice in Gross’s art. What distinguishes his writing is his knack for seeing and hearing things worth remembering. His pastiche draws on the commonality of urban life, with many of his stories set in downtown bars or on the buses that take him there. The main character is No One Special, a person who appears in various guises, capable of both unfettered generosity and burdensome peevishness.” Gregory Flannery, Managing Editor, Streetvibes
