Drugs, Food, Sex and God
An addicted drug dealer goes from convict to doctor through the power of intention
From a life of drug dealing to life as a doctor, from addiction to sex and drugs to healing and abundance, from days confined in the darkness of a prison cell to days spent helping empower others, Dr. George Baxter-Holder takes us on a profoundly personal and inspirational journey. Through his own experiences he shows what it means to live a life that is truly free and guided by intention. No matter how far you feel your life has spiralled out of control, be the problem money, drugs, food, sex, or co-dependency, you can put a stop to your freefall and begin the very intentional climb up to a life of freedom, love, and unspeakable joy. In this self-help memoir, Dr. George lays out the application of his Nine Steps and the power of intention that took him from addicted and convicted drug dealer to doctor, and shows others how they too can reclaim their lives.

“Through stories and deep, personal sharing, Dr. George connects us to the struggles each of us may have with self-limiting beliefs, and provides us a way through and a way out. Hearing the stories of others inspires us and informs our own path out of despair and into the life we really want.
