Author Dave Block is a survivor. It was almost not so. He struggled with depression, drugs, and alcoholism. Instead of acknowledging these problems, he ‘self-medicated’ with alcohol, drugs, self-harm, and sex. For years he attempted to live a ‘normal’ life. As his addictions and depression spiraled out of control, however, he hit bottom and settled upon suicide. His hand was stayed in the last moments, and his life was forever changed. Dave chose to fight for his life, confronting his problems head on. Through the support of friends and family, tools acquired through Alcoholics Anonymous, and the impact of the music of Blue October, he terminated his vices, searched his soul, and began to rebuild a life that had no longer been his own. This book takes the reader, in a brutally honest and open manner, from life, to low, to catharsis. Dave hopes that through his experiences, strength, honesty, and hope that you, too, will be strong enough - feel empowered enough - to face your own demons and addictions, so that you may also regain control of your own life.

About the Author:

Dave Block is a graduate of Guilford High School, and is the Owner and founder of Block Films. In 1987 Dave began his acting career at RVC's Starlight Theater when he was cast as Peter Pan. Over the next several years, he continued to play numerous roles, including his most notable and lauded role as Cousin Otis in the raucous comedy, 'Chistmas With The Conroys'. Dave has also written, directed and starred in the Insurance King commercials, where he played the ever-so-popular 'Insurance Geek' - fighting crime and high insurance rates. Over the years, Dave has managed several area businesses, and is currently at work on completing his third feature film 'The Adventures Of Wyatt Trash: The Devil's Spittoon'. In true Renaissance Man form, he has also begun writing a second book and - when time permits - writes songs. Also of note, Dave once wrote an entire stand-up routine on being the middle child, aptly named, Middle Child Syndrome.
