Not because of the twenty felonies she鈥檇 committed, or the nature of her crimes, or even that she鈥檇 been captain of the high school cheerleading squad just a few years earlier, but because her boyfriend was a Deputy Sherriff, and his friends鈥攖heir friends鈥攚ere the ones who鈥檇 arrested her.<br />聽<br />A raw and twisty page-turning memoir that reads like fiction,聽<i>High Achiever聽</i>spans Tiffany鈥檚 life as an active opioid addict, her 120 days in a Florida jail where every officer despised what she鈥檇 done to their brother in blue, and her eventual recovery. With heart-racing urgency and unflinching honesty, Jenkins takes you inside the grips of addiction and the desperate decisions it breeds. She is a born storyteller who lived an incredible story, from blackmail by an ex-boyfriend to a soul-shattering deal with a drug dealer, and her telling brims with suspense and unexpected wit. But the true surprise is her path to recovery. Tiffany breaks through the stigma and silence to offer hope and inspiration to anyone battling the disease鈥攚hether it鈥檚 a loved one or themselves.

<strong>鈥?lt;em>We Are the Luckiest </em>is a masterpiece. It鈥檚 the truest, most generous, honest, and helpful sobriety memoir I鈥檝e read. It鈥檚 going to save lives.鈥?lt;br /> 鈥?Glennon Doyle, #1 <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>Love Warrior: A Memoir</em></strong><br /> <br /> What could possibly be 鈥渓ucky鈥?about addiction? Absolutely nothing, thought Laura McKowen when drinking brought her to her knees. As she puts it, she 鈥渒icked and screamed . . . wishing for something 鈥?anything 鈥?else鈥?to be her issue. The people who got to drink normally, she thought, were so damn lucky.<br /> <br /> But in the midst of early sobriety, when no longer able to anesthetize her pain and anxiety, she realized that she was actually the lucky one. Lucky to feel her feelings, live honestly, really be with her daughter, change her legacy. She recognized that 鈥渢hose of us who answer the invitation to wake up, whatever our invitation, are really the luckiest of all.鈥?lt;br /> <br /> Here, in straight-talking chapters filled with personal stories, McKowen addresses issues such as facing facts, the question of AA, and other people鈥檚 drinking. Without sugarcoating the struggles of sobriety, she relentlessly emphasizes the many blessings of an honest life, one without secrets and debilitating shame.

<b>You don't have to live overwhelmed by stuff--you can get rid of clutter for good!</b><br />While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.<br />In <i>Decluttering at the Speed of Life</i>, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out--for good!<br />But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader's clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter--the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn't seem urgent--as well as how to make progress when there's no time to declutter.<br />Sections of the book include<br /><ul><li>Why You Need This Book (You Know Why)</li><li>Your Unique Home</li><li>Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life</li><li>Change Your Mind, Change Your Home</li><li>Breaking Through Your Decluttering Delusions</li><li>Working It Out Room by Room</li><li>Helping Others Declutter</li><li>Real Life Goes On (and On)</li></ul>As long as we're living and breathing, new clutter will appear.

<b><i>USA TODAY </i>BESTSELLER 鈥?The founder of a female-focused recovery program offers a radical new path to sobriety.</b><br /><br /><b>鈥淵ou don鈥檛 know how much you need this book, or maybe you do. Either way, it will save your life.鈥濃€擬elissa Hartwig Urban, Whole30 co-founder and CEO</b><br /><br /> We live in a world obsessed with drinking. We drink at baby showers and work events, brunch and book club, graduations and funerals. Yet no one ever questions alcohol鈥檚 ubiquity鈥攊n fact, the only thing ever questioned is why someone <i>doesn鈥檛</i> drink. It is a qualifier for belonging and if you don鈥檛 imbibe, you are considered an anomaly. As a society, we are obsessed with health and wellness, yet we uphold alcohol as some kind of magic elixir, though it is anything but.<br /><br /> When Holly Whitaker decided to seek help after one too many benders, she embarked on a journey that led not only to her own sobriety, but revealed the insidious role alcohol plays in our society and in the lives of women in particular. What鈥檚 more, she could not ignore the ways that alcohol companies were targeting women, just as the tobacco industry had successfully done generations before. Fueled by her own emerging feminism, she also realized that the predominant systems of recovery are archaic, patriarchal, and ineffective for the unique needs of women and other historically oppressed people鈥攚ho don鈥檛 need to lose their egos and surrender to a male concept of God, as the tenets of Alcoholics Anonymous state, but who need to cultivate a deeper understanding of their own identities and take control of their lives. When Holly found an alternate way out of her own addiction, she felt a calling to create a sober community with resources for anyone questioning their relationship with drinking, so that they might find their way as well. Her resultant feminine-centric recovery program focuses on getting at the root causes that lead people to overindulge and provides the tools necessary to break the cycle of addiction, showing us what is possible when we remove alcohol and destroy our belief system around it.<br /><br /> Written in a relatable voice that is honest and witty, <i>Quit Like a</i> <i>Woman </i>is at once a groundbreaking look at drinking culture and a road map to cutting out alcohol in order to live our best lives without the crutch of intoxication. You will never look at drinking the same way again.

Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of <i>Dreamland</i>. <br /> <br />With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been catastrophic. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached its peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market OxyContin, its new, expensive--extremely addictive--miracle painkiller. Meanwhile, a massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel--assaulted small town and mid-sized cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico.<br /> <br />Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents--Quinones shows how these tales fit together. <i>Dreamland</i> is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
