Cathi Marcus

published author

Sometimes it takes someone else exposing their deepest, darkest truths for you to find your own freedom.

Cathi Marcus was a ticking time bomb waiting to detonate when she left for college. Despite her amazing potential, gifted status and nomination by peers as “Most Likely to Succeed”, Cathi spiraled out of control into a Medusa of addictions as soon as she left the security and scrutiny of her childhood home.

Follow Cathi’s horrific rollercoaster ride down into food, alcohol, drug, cigarette and codependent relationship addictions, as well as her inspiring spiritual awakening and evolution. Through the power of her riveting and relatable stories, you will discover your own truth, new perspectives and hope for what’s possible for your life, no matter how overwhelming and difficult the addictions or challenges you face.

Very few memoirs deal with the complexity of multiple addictions and the path to freedom from them all. Addictionland is such a memoir. You will be moved by the authors raw and inspiring story to full recovery.

This book satisfies the most important prerequisite for a recovery memoir: it creates hope. Even when I had no free time, I found myself reading and rereading her stories because of the honest and remarkable way she stripped herself of pretense so that others might benefit.”

Addictionland is a “must read” for anyone whose success has been motivated by the whipping stick of perfectionism. I couldn’t put it down. A night’s worth sleep lost, but it was well worth it.”

Cathi Marcus may be writing about recovery from addictions….but this woman IS a drug! Addictionland is compulsively readable and instantly transformative.

Cathi’s experiences are heartbreaking, painful, horrific, true and beautifully written. I hope that all the Cathi’s out there named Sally or Steve who are suffering right now as Cathi did then get a chance to read this memoir and realize there is a way out.”

Anyone who thinks they have heard this story before is mistaken. This book is hard to put down once begun.

Powerful book, written by a powerful woman. Whether it is a physical addiction, or just a series of life events that have placed one in need of healing, Addictionland is a well written journey through darkness with a very realistic and attainable ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ feel to it.
