About the author:
I'm 57 years old. I stepped down from my job last year to devote myself to reading and writing. This autobiography in the form of testimony is my first book. Since then, I've written three other books.

A compendium and three fictions:

The compendium contains a list of venal classified ads. I took advantage of the misprints and other slips of the tongue to comment them in Old French language (18th century).

The three fictions are the story of a man close to retirement who works in a French government services. I made him live in comical situations that allow me to deliver a scathing analysis of the current shortcomings of society, business and politics.

I am married, I have granddaughter who is 5 years old. I love playing golf with friends.

Alcohol, the closest of enemies

Authored by Georges Hudine
Preface by Dr. Michel Ravoisier
Translated by Aron Ciesla, Jennifer Smith
Edition: 1

I describe my experience from the first glass to the height of alcohol dependence, as well as how I stopped drinking; and how I manage my relationship with alcohol, my "intimate enemy" in my everyday life, so that I have not drunk again.
Doctor Michel Ravoisier who is very involved in the fight against alcoholism, has written the preface to my book. I sign this text with a pseudonym, and for obvious reasons, I do not mention the names of the companies where I worked for, nor the organization thanks to which I stopped drinking. But you will find details of some of the organizations who will help those who want to escape,as they helped me.
What I most want the book to do, is to help people to understand the psychological and physiological mechanisms of alcohol addiction and how to combat them.
This book was published in France by ''La Société des Ecrivains'' in July 2013 under the title 'L'Alcool, un ennemi intime", ISBN : 9782342009248.
It was translated into English by Aron Ciesla and Jennifer Smith
