"The Heroin Diaries" by Nikki Sixx
I have yet to read his book. To be honest I've tended to avoid it over the years beacuse I was told it wasn't well written and it simply meandered between terrible "smack" binges. I'm reading bits of it currently. Perhaps I'll snag a physical copy from one of the many dollar bins where I've eyeballed this book. Nevertheless, Sixx is a survivor, and I earnestly believe he knows what he's writing about. Perhaps that's what is scaring me the most....this is a topic near & dear to my hardened heart. I've lost too many friends & family to this cunning disease of addiction & vice. My book--God willing--will be available one day. Stay free. God is Love. Trust Him.
Here's a nice excerpt that kinda' sums it all up:
"Addiction was my downfall and yet it’s been the very
thing that has given me a spiritual connection and
awareness that I never thought existed. Quitting drugs and
alcohol was the hardest thing I’ve ever done and has given me the most satisfaction. I’m actually glad I’m an addict,
’cause through recovery I have the ability to give back."
