About the Book

This book is about six personal life events. These six people have a lifetime of addiction problems and have all achieved sobriety and rescued their lives. Most began hard drug and alcohol use before age ten. These people have been abused and have abused themselves. These people have pulled themselves from the brink of death and have overcome unmentionable obstacles to become not just good people but to also give back to the communities they once destroyed. The men and women whose lives are in these pages have not only been to hell, many fought against themselves to stay at the same time seeing no way out. Methamphetamine, crack cocaine, alcohol, heroin, self-harm, and abuse in every form you can imagine, these young people have fought against the odds to overcome death and destruction to build hope and freedom for themselves and others. The events in this book are true events, and the people in this book represent real people alive today and free from drugs. They have rebuilt their lives from nothing to become well-respected members of communities. All work in recovery programs that help others still suffering from addiction, abuse, and homelessness.
