Read Symptoms of Withdrawal: A Memoir of Snapshots and Redemption ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Wood elite during the socially turbulent 1960s and 1970sAs the first born child of famed Rat Pack actor Peter Lawford and John F Kennedy’s sister Patricia Christopher Lawford was raised in Malibu and Martha’s Vineyard with movie stars and presidents as close family members and friends But this little boy who learned the twist thanks to private lessons from Marilyn Monroe would grow up to become a spoiled adolescent with a near fatal jones for heroin and alcohol With deep sin. I enjoyed the inside and honest view inside the Kennedy family and also the biographical info on Peter Lawford Christopher s father However I was very let down not only in the personal life of an actor I had admired in my childhood Peter Lawford but also in Christopher himself who seems to be uite misogynistic While he repeatedly insists he hadhas great respect for his later mother his sisters and most of all his aunt Jacueline Kennedy Onassis whom he relates having spied on while she was bathing as a boy he describes women almost solely as sex objects and basically states he can have any woman he wants because of who he is We can only hope as Lawford progresses in his recovery from drugs and alcohol that his attitudes change but there is no evidence of any change in his opinions toward women in this book

OK page 300 i have plowed through this ridiculousness a page or two a day Why I don t know Maybe that desire to hold out the hand of responsibility to a suffering addict But in this book Lawford is a writer but not a good oneI think the editor gave up by page 300 He bought his wife to be a bobble of a wedding ring B A U B L E Then his dad baled on him B A I L E D And the most recent confusing sentence read He said we had everything and would he take care ofThen to the idiocy the sadness the lack of insight The alcoholic never develops emotionally beyond the moment he picks up the first drink and he spends the rest of his life trying to conceal that fact I never got to know my father because he never got to know himselfChris if you are vain enough to be reading these reviews and you are the alcoholic can get into recovery and if so is challenged for the rest of his or her life to develop emotionally You never got to know your father because you never got to know YOURSELF The ego that made you change the name he gave you to Kennedy is still blocking you at page 300 If you knew yourself you would have a little compassion for your father Com passion Shared suffering Symptoms of Withdrawal By page 300 he s still in active addiction Read Clapton if you want to learn how famous people get into recoveryOK I m done I lumbered through this Go to page 359 where he says that the only way to engage a woman is to be true to yourself go to war and let the chips fall where they may He does uote the AA maxim about asking only where you are at fault and responds Fuck that because as with everything else this guy has to blame someone He does admit a few pages later that he really gets off on being a Kennedy He wrote about the identification I had clung to No kidding No humility whatsoever He said that this identity gave him power What it gave him was identity I have to get better at letting crappy books go
