Description

THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FEEL TRULY ALIVE? Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth. "I wrote this book because the oldest clichés remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven't been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free."

    It’s a rollercoaster of tears and happiness but no matter what your background, I would recommend this strongly. Personally wish this had been an recommended therapy for myself during difficult times.

    Thank you for this book. It’s come to me at the right time and really helped me see things differently. I felt as though you were talking to me one on one the whole time and you were answering all thoughts I’ve had in the last two weeks. Amazing read will be re reading for sure throughout my life.

    If you could categorise depression and anxiety into the working classes Matt Haig’s experience of the illness will be in the loftier end of middle. The thing that I disagreed most about this book is that he seems to shun medication. Yes, he does outrightly say that he ‘doesn’t have anything against it’ but seems to spend a lot of the book writing about how he couldn’t leave the house for months at a time, had frequent panic attacks, couldn’t cope in social situations (whatsoever) and somehow managed all of this over a period of years without any medication, alcohol, recreational drugs or self harm. The fact that he couldn’t manage all of this proves that for the worker bees amongst us with endless responsibilities depends on medication in small dosages. I’m almost laughing out loud as I’m working this but I can’t help but think that staying at his parents home, not HAVING to leave the house (says for work, groceries or other family members) leaves Haig a little out of touch? Proceed with caution with this one. I’m not in the opinion that this is the ‘average Joe’s’ experience of depression (if there is one).

    Matt writing is humble, honest and heart warming. This book will touch each of us differently, some more than others and no doubt affect each of us differently. For me, it was a beautiful experience reading it, tears flowed freely and at the end, I closed this book filled with gratitude. Thank you Matt
