Becoming Dann: My Battles with Booze, Sex, and Becoming a Man
"You have every excuse in the world to be a failure. But you haven't."
A friend once said to me. I replied "I just never gave up. Ever."
Becoming Dann : My Battles with Booze, Sex, and Becoming a Man is a book about how a boy becomes a man in his 30's after a lifetime of abuse at the hand of others and himself. Passed around amongst family members and never having a real sense of family, Dann struggles with no real sense of normality. His family becomes those he "adopts" and deals with the truth of absentee parents. Drinking goes from a social activity to a full-fledged addiction. The struggles of a life filled with sexual addiction, sex, sexuality, and the real meaning of love. Some loves ended. Some ended badly. Some ended in restraining orders. You see how a man goes through hell but always claws his way back to the top. A man who never gives up. Ever.
You get to see inside the life of me. The things I've been through, and the things I've ever told a soul. How I've struggled. It's not been easy, and I've had my share of bumps on the road. Hell, some would call them craters, I call them growing up. The best part? The story has just begun...
