Atlanta, GA, August 23, 2022 –(PR.com)–Former actor and model Jason Umidi nearly lost everything after years of heavy drinking and drug addiction.
Despite having developed in the church where his father was the pastor, Umidi quit religion to pursue a fast-living show business career in NY and Europe. A back injury led him to abuse prescription pain pills and, eventually, fentanyl and alcohol. In 2017, Umidi got clean and sober after entering detox and a 12-step program. He also returned to the church after realizing that his higher power was Jesus.
Umidi is currently sharing his experiences and road to lasting sobriety in the brand new book, “Jesus and Seltzer: Stories and Meditations on Sobriety and Recovery” (The Weight of Ink Publishing).
“Jesus + Seltzer” is founded on meditations Umidi wrote for his recovery blog, Todays ABOUT A MINUTE Read (todaysoneminuteread.com). Each is preceded by an inspirational quote from the famous figure such as for example Henry David Thoreau, Carl Jung, Benjamin Franklin, Joan Baez, Mother Teresa, Oscar Wilde among others, accompanied by Umidis explanation of how that quote is pertinent to his recovery.
‘Jesus and Seltzer’ can be an easy read for busy individuals who might be searching for quick inspiration any moment of day or night, Umidi said. With one of these about a minute meditations, I think about the gratitude that I’ve for life when i journey with this road through recovery. The hope that I offer exists out of my decades of experience coping with addictions and the best freedoms found through this sober lifestyle.
Umidis known reasons for leaving Christianity in his younger years were complicated, involving family issues and theological disagreements. Though he could be now a follower of Jesus, he believes that Jesus and Seltzer might help addicts and alcoholics of other faiths, as well as anyone who has no belief in an increased power.
The title definitely identifies who and what I’m about, but I’ve friends who don’t practice any particular faith who enjoy reading might work, Umidi said. If you are fighting addictions and you also grab this book, my prayer will be our shared experiences would develop a bond that could transcend our differences and that the reader would experience a romantic reference to the God of these understanding.
“Jesus and Seltzer: Stories and Meditations on Sobriety and Recovery” can be acquired through Amazon for $9.95 (paperback) and $2.99 (Kindle). More info can be acquired at www.JasonUmidi.com.
