On 3/13 Rob Grayson wrote: Coming Clean is essentially the very personal story of Haines’s journey from denial and self-medication towards healing and wholeness. It is a story of childhood faith and grown-up questions; it is a story of doubt and faith, of darkness and light, of fear and hope. It is not, at bottom, a book about ...

I don't really have an addictive personality, or maybe I just stay away from things I could become addicted to. (Okay, maybe caffeine, or rather, Dr Pepper, I do love Dr Pepper!) I think Coming Clean is much more than ... More than addiction, about forgiveness

On 1/5 Kristi wrote: Coming Clean by Seth Haines is a book that blew me away. This small, unimpressive-at-first paperback holds a raw, gut-wrenchingly honest story that describes all of our deepest struggles in one way or another.

On 12/22 Faith Farrell wrote: The publisher's description of this book says that it was written for everyone, whether or not they've had a drop to drink in their life. I'm on the "have not" side of that scale, and I agree. This was a worth-while read, because it's the story of one human being who decided that he was coming clean. ... Telling truth. Facing fear.
