Life can sometimes bring us crashing down, leaving us feeling shattered and hopeless. But it is in these moments of despair that we have the opportunity to rise above the wreckage and discover our inner strength. Out Of The Wreck Rise is a philosophy that reminds us that even in the face of adversity, we have the power to rebuild ourselves and emerge stronger than ever.

When we find ourselves in difficult situations, whether it be a failed relationship, a career setback, or a personal tragedy, it can be easy to succumb to feelings of despair and give up. However, Out Of The Wreck Rise encourages us to see these challenges as opportunities for growth and transformation.

The key to rising out of the wreckage lies in our mindset. It is natural to feel overwhelmed and defeated when life throws us a curveball, but by shifting our perspective and embracing a resilient mindset, we can turn our struggles into stepping stones towards success.

One of the first steps in embracing the Out Of The Wreck Rise philosophy is to acknowledge and accept our emotions. It is important to give ourselves permission to feel pain, sadness, and anger. By acknowledging these emotions, we can begin to process them and take the necessary steps towards healing.

Once we have allowed ourselves to feel our emotions, the next step is to start rebuilding. This can include setting new goals, reevaluating our priorities, and making proactive decisions that align with the vision of who we want to become. It is important to remember that the process of rebuilding is not linear and may involve setbacks along the way. However, every setback can be seen as an opportunity to learn and grow.

As we rebuild ourselves, it is crucial to surround ourselves with a supportive community. Out Of The Wreck Rise reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles, and seeking support from loved ones, friends, or even professional therapists can provide the encouragement and guidance needed to stay on track.

In addition to seeking support, self-care plays a vital role in the process of rising out of the wreckage. Taking care of our physical, emotional, and mental well-being is essential in maintaining resilience and strength. Engaging in activities that bring joy and practicing self-compassion can help fuel our journey towards healing and growth.

Out Of The Wreck Rise also emphasizes the power of gratitude. Despite the challenges we may face, finding gratitude for the blessings in our lives can help shift our focus away from the wreckage and towards the possibilities ahead. Practicing gratitude on a daily basis can bring about a sense of peace and appreciation for the journey we are on.

, Out Of The Wreck Rise is a philosophy that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, there is always the opportunity for growth and transformation. By embracing a resilient mindset, seeking support, practicing self-care, and cultivating gratitude, we can rise out of the wreckage and create a life of strength, purpose, and fulfillment.

Remember, no matter how broken we may feel, we have the power to rise above the wreckage and become the best version of ourselves.

“There’s still time to change things.”—Siri Hustvedt, The Blazing World

Addiction is easy to fall into and hard to escape. It destroys the lives of individuals, and has a devastating cost to society. The National Institute of Health estimates seventeen million adults in the United States are alcoholics or have a serious problem with alcohol. At the same time, the country is seeing entire communities brought to their knees because of opioid additions. These scourges affect not only those who drink or use drugs but also their families and friends, who witness the horror of addiction. With Out of the Wreck I Rise, Neil Steinberg and Sara Bader have created a resource like no other—one that harnesses the power of literature, poetry, and creativity to illuminate what alcoholism and addiction are all about, while forging change, deepening understanding, and even saving lives.

Structured to follow the arduous steps to sobriety, the book marshals the wisdom of centuries and explores essential topics, including the importance of time, navigating family and friends, relapse, and what Raymond Carver calls “gravy,” the reward that is recovery. Each chapter begins with advice and commentary followed by a wealth of quotes to inspire and heal. The result is a mosaic of observations and encouragement that draws on writers and artists spanning thousands of years—from Seneca to David Foster Wallace, William Shakespeare to Patti Smith. The ruminations of notorious drinkers like John Cheever, Charles Bukowski, and Ernest Hemingway shed light on the difficult process of becoming sober and remind the reader that while the literary alcoholic is often romanticized, recovery is the true path of the hero.

Along with traditional routes to recovery—Alcoholics Anonymous, out-patient therapy, and intensive rehabilitation programs—this literary companion offers valuable support and inspiration to anyone seeking to fight their addiction or to a struggling loved one.

Featuring Charles Bukowski, John Cheever, Dante, Ricky Gervais, Ernest Hemingway, Billie Holiday, Anne Lamott, John Lennon, Haruki Murakami, Anaïs Nin, Mary Oliver, Samuel Pepys, Rainer Maria Rilke, J. K. Rowling, Patti Smith, Kurt Vonnegut, and many more.
