Bottled Memories is a collection of poetry by David Ritter chronicling the journey of an alcoholic from addiction to early recovery.
While the poems are stand-alone pieces, written and collected over the years drawing from the author’s experiences, both shared and personal, all together they form a tapestry of an alcoholic’s journey from addictiction through to recovery and salvation..
There’s the one more drink that leads to another, there’s the promises boozers make, the lonesome Christmases, the love lost and the plans cut short by Mr Booze, and then there’s the finding your way back, twelve steps small steps for man and the joy of recovery….
Bottled Memories is funny, tragic, quirky and inspiration delivered in rhyme.
It’s a very quick read, 42 pages of just over 30 short poems which took me under an hour to read, but the message lingers long after. If you or someone you know is battling addiction this could be the signal that you are not alone.
