I seemingly had it all; The cars, the bikes, the boats, the houses. A beautiful wife who loved me and my own successful business. What could possibly be wrong.? Maybe the fact that I didn't take interest in any of it. I was lost in depression and didn't know why. So I drank and drank and drank. Sleep and alcohol seems my only refuge. Come with me through the looking glass and back again and see what I have found. It could possibly save your life.
In this memoir, Wagner explores his substance abuse, shares his experiences, discusses what he's learned, examines the twelve-step program, and imparts the principles he believes in that help him to lead a joyful and productive life. From his birth in Germany, immigrating to the United States at age five, and surviving a volatile upbringing, Wagner highlights key events in his life and examines his descent into substance abuse and his journey back to sobriety.
In Tears of the Son, Wagner relives some of his darkest days, but he shows how those experiences shaped him as a person and are helping him transform from just a human doing to a true human being.
