Description

What can be more difficult than breaking a drug habit? Simple: staying clean. Melinda Ferguson follows her powerful drug memoir Smacked with this brutally honest account of her post-addiction addictions - from self-help fads, to Oprah, to 12 step meetings, to men, to Facebook. How does an addict deal with a world in which instant gratification has become the norm? How does an addict break the cycle of use and abuse that has been their life for so many years? How does an addict balance kids, a career and a relationship while fighting to stay clean? How does an addict fill the hole in the soul?In this no-holds-barred account of her life after drugs, Melinda Ferguson reveals just how easy it is for recovering addicts to slip back into the patterns of behaviour that led them to use in the first place. Provocative and often darkly humorous, she takes us to those 'dangerous' places that all addicts battle to avoid and shows us just what it takes to come back from the brink.
