#15752/0370  ADDICTED LIVE! A Comedy of Substance
ADDICTED is a hilarious and unexpectedly moving view into one man's journey down the rabbit hole of bad choices, wrong places, and insurmountable obstacles and the transformation that ultimately pulled him out... or did it? Lundholm's autobiographical comedy is a full throttle, heart-pounding and wildly entertaining ride - looking at all our addictive tendencies - from alcohol, suicide, sex, and drugs to coffee, work, food, the internet and golf! For "healthy people" and "the rest of us" addicted to ANYTHING, Lundholm's "been there", "drank that" style of humor grabs the laughter and the tears of living versus simple survival.

Addiction recovery is not just about abstinence. Rather, it is about adhering to a healthy lifestyle - one that guards against relapse and promotes biologic wellness. This program explains how a moderate level of daily physical activity can help insure the occurrence of this natural phenomenon.

Aside from the fact that some people substitute alcohol for food in their diets, whether with intent or not, the question also arises as to what affect the consumption of alcohol has on general nutritional health. Some people drink profuse amounts of alcohol with meals, others have a little sip as a pre- or post-dinner stimulant. Alcohol is also a diuretic. Listen and learn.

This is a documentary about people living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Courageous addiction recovery advocates are starting to come out of the shadows to tell their true stories. Deeply entrenched social stigma and mass participation in widely successful anonymous 12-step groups have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The moving story of THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE will be told through the faces and voices of the leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them.
