Jason MacKenzie is a writer, and the creator of The Book of Open. Jason drank as a way of coping with his wife Cindy’s bi-polar disorder. In 2010, the pain was too much, and Cindy took her own life. Jason was also left with two young daughters to now raise on his own, and the girls were left without a mother. Jason continued to drink with hopes of numbing the pain, but his situation emotionally only worsened. Alone, afraid, and confused, he finally had a realization, and a breakthrough in a moment of pure strife. He put down the bottle, picked up the pen, and started sharing his experience.
