# Pages: 217 pages
Dimensions: 6 x 9
Dreams of a childhood are filled with innocence and fantasy, unless that child lives in a dysfunctional home. Dave Harm was raised in a home with two alcoholic parents. His dreams were about survival and escape. This meant he would run away from the pain of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. First, Harm tried running away physically. When that no longer worked he ran away spiritually by burying his soul in alcohol and drugs.
Overtime, all his methods to avoid pain failed. All that was left was the rage which was stored in him since childhood. His addictive behaviors led to altercations with the law, as well as suicide attempts. Harm's self-destruction cost him jobs, homes, family, and marriages. But through all the nightmares he still had dreams. And his dreams began to come alive when he surrendered to alcoholism.
