The top ten books about addiction

SJ Watson is the author of Before I Go To Sleep and Second Life.

One of his top ten books about addiction, as shared at the Guardian:
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk

Bleakly comic, this tells the story of Victor, a man who has sex in order to avoid life, rather than embrace it, and as a distraction from his damaged relationship with his mother. And where does this sex addict go to find partners? Sex-addiction support groups, of course. Like I said, bleakly comic.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Also see Dan Barden's six top stories of addiction.
