The physical symptoms of withdrawal from a drug or alcohol addiction might last a month or two at most?but the psychological withdrawal can last years. Enter Philip Muls? Mind on Fire: A Case of Successful Addiction Recovery, a gripping, authentic account of an addict?s first eighteen months of sobriety.

Addicts in recovery have to navigate a minefield of existential doubts and imperfect thinking. It is even worse for people who identify completely with their ego-mind. They have an addiction to drinking, to be sure, but they also have an addiction to thinking. When they learn to set this Mind on Fire, they can find a second perspective by watching the thinker in themselves.

Readers of Mind on Fire will see themselves as if in a mirror, and get confirmation that they are not alone with their angst and fears when they stop drinking. They will find out that when we love ourselves, there is no longer a need to drink.

Mind on Fire is an intelligently written account of a successful businessman’s struggle toward abstinence. His relentless search for a new meaning and identity in a life without alcohol pushes him way out of his comfort zone. Philip Muls takes the reader with him on a truly authentic journey full of ups and downs. I can therefore recommend Mind on Fire to anyone in search of a guide on the way to sobriety.”
