A triumphantly inspiring memoir, the first from a Kennedy family member since Rose Kennedys 1974 autobiography, Lawfords Symptoms of Withdrawal tells the bittersweet truth about life inside Americas greatest family legacy. As the firstborn child of famed Rat Pack actor Peter Lawford and Patricia Kennedy, sister to John F.

Kennedy, Christopher Kennedy Lawford grew up with presidents and movie stars as close relatives and personal friends.Lawford recalls Marilyn Monroe teaching him to dance the twist in his living room when he was still a toddler, being awakened late at night by his uncle Jack to hear him announce his candidacy for president, being perched atop a high-roller craps table in Las Vegas while Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack swapped jokes and threw dice, and other treasured memories of his youth as part of Americas royal family.In spite of this seemingly idyllic childhood, Lawfords early life was marked by the traumatic assassinations of his beloved uncles Jack and Bobby, and he soon succumbed to the burgeoning drug scene of the 1970s during his teen years.

With compelling realism mixed with equal doses of self-deprecating wit, youthful bravado, and hard-earned humility, Symptoms of Withdrawal chronicles Lawfords deep and long descent into near-fatal drug and alcohol addiction, and his subsequent formidable path back to the sobriety he has preserved for the past twenty years.Symptoms of Withdrawalis a poignantly honest portrayal of Lawfords life as a Kennedy, a journey overflowing with hilarious insider anecdotes, heartbreaking accounts of Lawfords addictions to narcotics as well as to celebrity and, ultimately, the redemption he found by asserting his own independence.In this groundbreakingly courageous and exceptionally well-written memoir, Lawford steps forward to rise above the buried pain that first led to his addiction, and today lives mindfully by his time-tested mantra: We are only as sick as the secrets we keep.

Symptoms of Withdrawal keeps no secrets and is a compelling testament to the power of truth.
