Summary: In this book, gay men open up and share their own personal experiences of being a gay alcoholic/addict and living as sober gay men, including experiences leading to and following recovery. Addiction and recovery are often life-changing and lifelong issues for many gay men. Leaving the Rest explores a wide range of sober experiences, each in relation to a twelve-step program and with varied levels of success. Honest, at times harrowing, but ultimately inspiring, these personal stories give voice to gay men and the ways in which sexuality intersects with addition and recovery on the path to sobriety.
