I am a recovering alcoholic and addict. 69 days sober today. I got out of a residential treatment center a week ago. While I was in there my Father gifted me “The Power of Now”, I read it slowly so that I could absorb all of had to offer. My thinking has been changed drastically, I realize I have been asleep for the better part of 10 years in my addictions. I am 24. I see the Oneness and am excited to interact with others who are coming awake as well.

Welcome to the forum. At one time we had a member here who woke up and now works with those with addictions using the same principles that Tolle speaks of. His name is Scott Kiloby. Scott was also addicted to alcohol, so he is well versed in the issues you are facing, and he's developed a methodology of working with others with addictions of various kinds. Here is his website:

Edited to add: There are youtube videos of Scott, and here is one where he talks specifically about nonduality (the underpinning of Tolle's teaching) and addiction.
