About the Author
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.
A pale gold tabby she-cat with creamy stripes and yellow eyes padded in, "Hello? May i join?" she meowed...
The rules say that a moon is a week but I believe it is a month. :/ Pardon if I'm wrong.
She pads in, looking for the leader. "Where is the leader of this clan?"
Very sorry. My cat got attacked and is bleeding at the neck. Will not be on today...))
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.
