The alcohol/drug/recovery memoir has become so commonplace (and trite), that we forget it hasn't been around for that long. The 19th century writer Thomas de Quincey (a contemporary and friend of Coleridge and Wordsworth) vividly describes his decades of opium (which was legal) addiction and, prefiguring Freud, the dreams and subconsciousness that it unleashes. Pour yourself a cool, tall glass of laudanum and enjoy.
