Jolene and Joe are fighting again: This time, it’s because he introduced her as his “roommate” when she walked into the bar. When he asks her why she’s so upset, she’s stoned enough to answer truthfully: “I felt so disrespected with the roommate thing.” How did it get it this? Jolene Jones, a behavior analyst who hadn’t smoked marijuana for ten years before meeting Joe, reveals how she was tempted into a co-dependent relationship in this memoir about addiction and recovery. During their first getting-to-know-you call, Joe told her he was looking for a wholesome girl to go bicycling with and he wanted to find a good church. She got off the phone and thought: Thank you, Jesus … my heart be still. But early on, she understood he was a hard-core alcoholic/addict … but in recovery. She couldn’t really hold that against him, though: She was in recovery herself. Join Jolene as she seeks to break a circular cycle of addiction and recovery in Dwelling. This book will provide hope and inspiration to others who struggle with multiple addictions, co-dependency and the ebb and flow of ongoing recovery. It is a must read. I highly recommend this book.—Corrine Casanova, senior editor, Gentle Path Press
