Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he regularly smoked pot, did cocaine and ecstasy, and developed addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise.
In writing that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It’s a harrowing portrait, but not one without hope.

This book really is a tell all tale of his life in the grips of drug addiction. I found it extremely difficult to listen to my music while I was working or driving in my car, I just wanted to listen to this book. It is quite long so if you tend to get bored, this is not the book for you. I didn't want it to end, I enjoyed every minute of it.
Anyone who has struggled with drug/alcohol addiction or know anyone who has, especially a loved one, this book is a must read. I believe that anyone who has been where Nic has been can and will understand every word and why he does what he does. It's a terrible disease that not only affects the person but the whole entire family. It continues to rip families and lives apart. This book is an accurate description of what it's like on the downward spiral....
I first read "Beautiful Boy" by David Sheff (Nic's dad). I couldn't put it down. Nic's book is even more addicting. Read it!!
