Ripple Effects…

August 31, 2018

Chris Grosso Newport Academy

Beside myself right now in humility and gratitude. I share the following email I just received from an 18 year old girl in no way as ego inflation, but rather, to let you know you truly never know what affect you’re having on others, or how far those ripple effects may go. Just another reason to do your best to be kind, lend a helping hand whenever possible, and be there for others in need. We’re all capable of this regardless of whether it’s teaching a workshop or just being a decent human being in everyday life 🙂

“Hello, I’m not sure if you remember me but I met you at Newport Academy this past January. I have colorful hair and piercings. I remember the first workshop that you came for was when I first got to Newport and I asked you if people told you that you couldn’t achieve your dreams. I don’t remember exactly what your response was but I remember I felt so empowered and even though I was in tears it was the happiest I felt in a long time. I felt like I was worth something. I counted down the days for every other Wednesday. The first day I met you was the day I chose recovery and your words gave me the motivation to keep going even when I didn’t want to. Seeing the dragonfly on the cover of your book reinforced my belief that better times were coming. It meant the world to me. “Dead Set on Living” has changed my life so much. I carry it with me.

You also wrote “we all walk this path together” in the front of my book and if I’m at work or someplace where I can’t pull it out I use that phrase as a mantra and I feel so empowered. You really make me feel like I am not alone and that I can really accomplish my dreams. I would like to thank you for being someone I can look up to. Because of your support (in workshops and in your books) I am working towards my dreams. I am currently enrolled in Community College of Philadelphia. I hope one day to write a book and do workshops and public speaking stuff.

A few hours ago I was having family issues. I was on the train on the way to pick up. To relapse. Your book and my journal were in my bag. I started writing and I read “we all walk this path together” and I looked at the dragonfly. I still wasn’t feeling that great but I googled “Chris Grosso” and saw your recent(ish) recovery 2.0 interview. It inspired me to stay clean. I was able to make the decision to call a friend to pick me up from the train instead of going to buy drugs. I am so grateful for everything you do. You have been the turning point in my recovery and have given me the confidence to do what’s best for me. Thank you so much for everything you do to help others and thank you for inspiring and empowering me!

Live Life,

K”

Dead Set On Living Now Available

March 7, 2018

Chris DSOL

Well, the day has finally arrived and Dead Set On Living is now officially in the world. This book quite literally almost took my life, but I’m still standing and believe with my entire everything that it can deeply benefit all beings on their healing journeys. And that has very little to do with me, but rather the illuminating conversations I was blessed to have with a very eclectic mix of spiritual teachers, artists, neuroscientists, addiction experts, and so on. But this is not just a book about addiction/recovery. It is a book about exploring why we return to self-defeating behaviors (whatever they may be) and most importantly, how to truly overcome them. My sincerest thanks to everyone who’s already bought a copy or is planning on it. And I understand if you’re not financially able to (totally) but if it sounds like something that may be of service to people you know, it’d mean so much if you could share about it on social media or with your friends, family, or whomever. It’s available everywhere books are sold in paperback, ebook, and audiobook formats. My deepest love and gratitude to you all! May we all be free from suffering.

OVERVIEW

There are hundreds of great books about recovery but not one about what it’s like to relapse and recover again comprised of no-holds-barred conversations and practices that readers can carry with them through any circumstance. Dead Set on Living is essential reading for anyone seeking a path to healing through adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

“Why do we do things we know will hurt us and the people we love?” (more…)

I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much fun I had on this podcast. If you have any interest in the stories behind Indie Spiritualist and Everything Mind… this is the one to check out. Many sordid tales. Lots of filthy language. Many names were named and yet, at the end… the message is of course hope/redemption. Two straight up, fucked up dudes talking about what they went through; Hardcore music, drugs, and how we got through. NSFW! Check it out HERE!
