About the Author

Taite Adams is a successful marketer and published author who has traded in the high cost of low living for a much more peaceful, and rewarding, life. Free of alcohol and drugs for over a decade and an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous, Taite (not her real name) enjoys living a sober life and sharing those joys with her family, friends and people looking for a better way to live.

Her first book, "Kickstart Your Recovery - The Road Less Traveled to Freedom From Addiction", is already climbing the Kindle charts in the Recovery Section. Taite's second book deals with answering the much-asked question of How to "Safely Detox from Alcohol and Drugs at Home". Her third book tackles a subject close to home for both herself and many others - that of "Opiate Addiction". Taite's fourth book is about renewal and making new beginnings in recovery - called "Restart Your Recovery". Her latest book seeks to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the popular drug "Molly". Called "Who is Molly?", the book examines misconceptions about this drug, its dangers, effects and much more. All of these are available in both Kindle format and in paperback.

Taite is an avid boater, licensed Coast Guard Captain and prolific traveler. While her bucket list remains long, each day brings a shining new opportunity to cross something off the list or discover something new - and for that she remains forever grateful.

Standard AA and treatment talk. AA and other xa programs are imbued with strong elements of christianity. A belief in a higher power is not necessary to achieve lengthy time in recovery. Atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers might do better to check out the aaagnostica website and books published by the aaagnostica publishing company-- some of those books are found at B&N. The writing is so-so in this book. A waste of time.

She pads in, looking for the leader. "Where is the leader of this clan?"

No. We win. We all win. You know why? We didn't create the utopia here that we wanted. True. However, we have sparked a movement amongst the Warriors clans. Lok at the Erin Hunter books, and you'll see ads for several Clans who talk about patrols, non-endless food, and other realistic stuff. So in a sense, we have left our mark on the world. And I have just finished being philosophical.
