My Mind Has A Mind Of Its Own

 My all true, dramatic, heartwarming, story of  being hopeless and helpless , devistated and isolated through my addiction to drugs and alcohol. The story will take you on quie a ride through my life of addiction into the miraclous recovery, now (35) years.

The story has blessed thousands in several countries, very well received by those in recovery, those suffering and those with family members or loved ones that are suffering as well. 


The end was finally at hand, I placed the .38 revolver in my mouth and pulled the trigger. The tear gas was thrown, shots rang out, police rushed the house guns drawn, finding Gordon on the floor face down.

"My Mind Has a Mind of Its Own," by Gordon Rouston (Cape Cod Publishing, P.O. Box 1062, Mashpee, MA 02649, ISBN 0-980-16354-4, 207 pages, $15.95)

Gordon Rouston of Mashpee has a lot on his mind in his memoir, "My Mind Has a Mind of Its Own." In fact, he founded his own publishing company, Cape Cod Publishing, to make sure he retained control over each thought and word. Rouston's subject is addiction and alcoholism, and he uses his own devastating experiences with drugs and alcohol to exhort others not to follow the path he took before hitting bottom and finding a way back up to sobriety and success. Rouston has worked with small and large groups around the country to bring the joy of sobriety to those struggling with addiction issues.

Falmouth Enterprise

In a preface Mr. Rouston explains that he is an alcoholic who, with Gods help, has kicked, "this terrible obsession." He goes on: "Obviously you have picked up this book and started to read because you too have this soul sickness...." But Mr. Rouston underestimates his book. Yes, My Mind Has A Mind Of Its Own is a cautionary tale, but anyone who picks it up is going to enjoy the ride.

No wonder God loves Mr. Rouston. The man has a redeeming sense of humor.

Mr. Rouston is a public speaker, the sharer of his life story and the message therein, and I would recommend him.

My Mind Has a Mind of Its Own (Paperback) I am not an avid reader, but from the preface on, I could not put the book down. It is a compelling account of an individual's dark journey through addiction and loss.

Reader Reviews for "My Mind Has A Mind Of Its Own"

Reviewed by Richard Bowers 11/21/2012
Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.
