Summary
  • "Jack Kerouac's On the Road helped to define freedom for a generation. But when a young recovering alcoholic turned to the beat classic for inspiration, he saw more warning signs and wreckages than enlightenment and self-discovery. Was that really freedom? Setting off from Australia, Lennox Nicholson retraces the journey of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty but with one crucial twist - he will try to stay sober. Instead of booze, Benzos and stolen cars he will rely on the generosity of strangers he meets in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)."--
  • During this trip, Lennox attends an Alcoholics Anonymous convention in Atlanta and listens to a talk by an Indigenous Australian man named Ron, who spoke about how alcohol use made him act violently towards his family. He also spoke of the impact of alcohol use in Indigenous Australian communities; how he overcame his addiction through counselling and his need to assist others who suffer from the same affliction
