Name- MaryBeth Murtha
Rated- 5/5 *****
Excerpt- "I read this book a couple of months ago. It took me some time to absorb it and be able to write my thoughts. This is a very honest book. Any parents of addicts/alcoholics should know that up front. The author does not hold back on the ugly details of his life when he was using. I should back up and tell you that I lost my son to a drug overdose on 5/19/13. For that reason this book was painful to read. I felt like it was a peek in the window of what my son's life may have been during some of the time he was using. Regardless of how painful it was to read, I continued. There is nothing to be gained by burying my head in the sand.

Fortunately the author's story ends on a positive note. The final pages of the book were very emotional for me as it was very easy to put myself in the place of his family, especially his Mom. I've walked in her shoes and I know what she suffered.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an honest depiction of one addicts experience. It's not pretty. It's ugly and dangerous but you will understand how twisted the thinking becomes, the desperation and the hopelessness...You will understand all of that better than you do now and that is the only thing that's going change any of this. The more who understand the easier it will become to solve the many problems associated with substance use and abuse."
