    Great Story
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Apr 17, 2018
    I read this book on three different occasions in my life, every time i was struggling with alcoholism. Even though the main character struggles with Meth and Heroin as well as alcohol, i can still relate greatly with what he is going through. Very in depth deep and dark look in to the life of an addict, as well as a very inspiring ending. I recommend this to anybody currently or previously ever having dealt with addiction.

    Difficult to read, impossible to put down
    4.75/5, 4.75 out of 5, reviewed Jan 9, 2018
    • + Gritty, fast paced, fun, honest, wild
    • - Very dark, harrowing, not enough family content
    Nic’s story with begins with the very first time he tried alcohol and from them on he would take whatever he could get until he was a young man addicted to heroin and methamphetamine. However like many of us he still thought he could fix it all if he chose. Reading this book I could have been Nick, you fall head first into the story and are catapulted along this wild ride of wanting more, always more until things can’t go on. How he battles through the utter depths of mental and physical addiction. The torture of a relapse he thought would never happen to him. Then begins a very raw, sometimes painful journey into recovery. You root for Nic every trip and every stumble along the way. A must read!
