Pete Jackson: Christmas Future: Sober?

I've thought a great deal about my own alcoholism, and alcoholism in general whilst writing Love In Recovery and it's an endlessly complex, slippery, frustrating and fascinating subject.

Pete Jackson: My Christmas as a drinking alcoholic

I'm Pete Jackson. Six years ago, in late September, I quit drinking. It wasn't my first attempt, not by a long stretch, but I hoped (and six years later I'm still hoping) that it was my last.

Pete Jackson, The Huffington Post, 11th December 2015

Final episode of what has been an astonishingly good new comedy series. Why "astonishing"? Because its subject is serious, alcoholism. The situation is in a weekly meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, each episode following the story of why the speaker got there, complete with anger, lies and the pain of finding the truth about oneself. And yet it's funny, because life is funny and so is the road to self revelation. The cast is impressive, the acting superb and if Pete Jackson, who wrote it from his own experience, doesn't get a prize there's no justice.
