The face of addiction and alcoholism is a face that many have seen before -- it may be a celebrity, a colleague, or even a family member. And though the 12-step program by itself can often bring initial success, many addicts find themselves relapsing back into old ways and old patterns, or replacing one addiction with another. Author Darren Littlejohn has been there and back, and presents a complimentary guide for recovery to the traditional twelve-step program, out of his own struggles and successes through the study of Zen and Tibetan Buddhism. Working with the traditional 12-Step philosophy, the author first shares his own life path, and how he came to find the spiritual solace that has greatly enhanced his life in recovery. Then, he details out how his work integrating Buddhism into the traditional twelve-step programs validates both aspects of the recovery process. While being careful not to present himself as a Tibetan lama or Zen master, the author shows how each step -- such as admitting there is a problem, seeking help, engaging in a thorough self-examination, making amends for harm done, and helping other drug addicts who want to recover -- fits into the Bodhisattva path. This integration makes Buddhism accessible for addicts, and the 12 Steps understandable for Buddhists who may otherwise be at a loss to help those in need. The 12-Step Buddhist is designed to be a complimentary practice to the traditional 12-step journey, not a replacement. While traditional twelve-step programs help addicts become sober by removing the drug of choice and providing a spiritual path, they rarely delve deep into what causes people to suffer in the first place. The integration of Buddhism with the traditional process provides the wisdom and meditations that can help addicts truly find a deep, spiritual liberation from all causes and conditions of suffering -- for good.

Sucht ist der Versuch, ein erfülltes Leben zu führen und Suchtverhalten nicht die Ausnahme, sondern die Regel. Materie und Medien offerieren allenthalben kurzfristige Befriedigungen, die Egoismus und Hedonismus zärteln. Aber: Der Rausch geht einher mit Selbstaufgabe. Langfristig regiert der Frust. Der vergeblichen Hast nach Bedeutung bei übermäßiger Beschäftigung mit sich selbst entledigt sich die »Buddha-Therapie« anhand alltagstauglicher Techniken und Methoden. Schädliche Gewohnheitsmuster werden entsorgt und Selbstbestimmung und Lebensfreude rehabilitiert. Weniger ist eben doch mehr!

Dies ist die Geschichte von Noah Levine, eines jungen Mannes, der gegen seine Eltern und die unerfüllten Versprechen der 60er Jahre rebelliert. Seine Suche nach Sinn endet in Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol. Am Rand des Suizids beginnt er zu meditieren. Erfüllt von Wut versucht er seinem Widerstand gegen eine verlogene Gesellschaft ein konstruktives Gesicht zu geben. Es ist ein steiniger Weg, geprägt von Verzweiflung, Rückschlägen und Enttäuschungen. Doch schließlich findet er zu der inneren Freiheit, nach der er gesucht hat. Dies ist ein provokanter, ehrlicher Bericht, der uns tief in die Punk Szene führt. Eine Geschichte von Wut, Rebellion und Selbstzerstörung, aber auch von Heilung, Selbstlosigkeit und spirituellem Wachstum.
