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.

As a recovering drug addict myself this was one of the first books I ever read as a drug addict. I felt so consumed by what I was doing at the time that ready Nicks life was almost comforting to know I wasn’t alone and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I then read his dads book a Beautiful Boy. They both should be read together.
I've had this for many years and I can never stop listening to this.
This was a great read! No holding back when it came to details
