In "iWant, "investigative journalist and author Jane
Velez-Mitchell traces her unique quest for an addiction-free life
over the course of many years, detailing her struggles to stop
drinking, smoking, overeating, and overworking. During this
journey, Velez-Mitchell comes closer to discovering her authentic
self, embracing her ethnic identity, and accepting her true sexual
orientation. With layers upon layers of addictions removed, she is
able to distinguish between what she "wants "and what she truly
"needs," and ultimately confronts her addiction across the board
Using the Twelve Steps in every aspect of her life,
Velez-Mitchell shares how she shed many of the self-destructive
habits that plague Americans, habits responsible for a host of
social ills from the obesity crisis to environmental wreckage. She
admits to having been one of the 300 million Americans who shops
and acquires addictively and describes how the Twelve Steps have
put her on the road toward shedding unnecessary material
possessions and limiting waste despite a society that glorifies
While her journey is ongoing and she is still seeking answers,
the culmination of Velez-Mitchell's work to date is having held the
first Overconsumers Anonymous meeting, in which she and others like
her admit to being powerless over this very real addiction and are
ready to adopt a more spiritually fulfilling, economical, and
environmentally friendly lifestyle."
