Summary

Summary

The longer I stay clean, the more the world just opens up with possibilities and hope. But it’s so hard to remember that. And I guess that’s the problem. So today I wanna remember. Let me tell you what happens: It all falls down. Just like that. Every time.

In his bestselling memoir Tweak, Nic Sheff took readers on an emotionally gripping roller-coaster ride through his days as a crystal meth and heroin addict. Now in this powerful follow-up about his continued efforts to stay clean, Nic writes candidly about eye-opening stays at rehab centers, devastating relapses, and hard-won realizations about what it means to be a young person living with addiction.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nic Sheff captures the insidious, almost vampiric mind-set of an addict who shrinks from any form of light. This book has more in common with Kafka than any recovery memoir I’ve read.” Mary Karr, New York Times bestselling author of Lit and The Liars’ Club
“Sheff is blessed with off-the-charts readability, and his sex- and profanity-laced first-person narration makes him lovable and hateable in equal measure.” Booklist (starred review)
“Sheff's journey, like his writing, is raw and compelling, heartbreaking and witty. An honest and gracious reflection about the challenges of recovery.” Rachel Sontag, author of House Rules: A Memoir
