This book is about a personal journey of trials and tribulations and dealing with addiction. As your read this book you get a view into the world of emotions and compulsive behaviour of an addict and some cool stories along the way. Great read...

A great book about the not-so-glamourous sides of rock, addiction and recovery. I read it straight through, and will re-read it soon. Highly recommended!
