This book provided such an insight into the mind of an addict. The self-delusion and emptiness that addicts feel was fascinating and the author holds nothing back. It's a fantastic read and I highly recommend.

Brilliant, Can't Stopped Reading!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 March 2018
Beautifully written, brutally honest, great read! I started reading this right after I finished reading "Beautiful Boy" by David Sheff and like his father's book, I could not put it down, Nic's writing was captivating maybe because he described a world that was so foreign to me, I never used drugs, none of my friends or family had an addiction problem, drugs was I only hear about Hollywood stars I admire and I would feel sorry for them and that is the exact feeling I had when I was reading Nic's amazing writing, I wanted to cuddle him and protect him from all the bad things, I could not imagine what his parents must have gone through, and I still have a hard time understanding why someone so talented was willing to destroy his life so easily, but that is the problem I guess, addiction is a disease, once you start it takes over, so my wish for Nic is hope he finds one thing that can fill the void in his soul, hope he stays strong and keeps writing because he has an amazing way with words and I can't wait reading more from him! Lastly I have to admit this reading marathon with David & Nic Sheff started with my discovery of ridiculous talented Timothy Chalamet in CMBYN, he is another beautiful boy and gentle soul, I'm so looking forward to watching him in Beautiful Boy, hope Nic stays clean and attends all the film festivals with the cast!

An amazing book!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 January 2019
I read the book immediately after watching the movie. I realized with the movie that it was more about the father's struggle dealing with his son's addiction, so as a first step i wanted to see Nic's side of the story. I couldn't put the book down. I felt like crying with every relapse. I felt pride in him with every small victory. Drugs don't just affect down and outs. They can touch anybody. The best of people, with lives full of opportunities. Yet everybody's psychology is unique, so anyone could fall victim. A very touching, many times disturbing, honest account of the struggle of drug addiction. I wish Nic all the very best. He is an inspiration in his will to fight despite tripping himself up and falling down so many times. He still gets back up. Respect.

A must read!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 August 2019
This story really pulls you into the sad, destructive life of a drug addict. At times unbelievable to read what they will do just to get high. Also the whole family tragically suffers which is so sad. The worst part was when he had been clean and then dragged back into it again by his girlfriend. Hopefully he now has a life. Well worth a read.
My thoughtsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 April 2019
I have just read your book Nick and I must say how much I admire your honesty. Although at time throughout your book it make me angry. It also makes me sad that you feel so alone. To finish I want to say to you that I I honestly want to wish you all the very best in your future. You deserve it and you also deserve happiness I hope you get it all I really do.
Not for the faint heartedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 March 2019
A detailed account of life on drugs. Difficult for anyone to be so open about things they’ve done but if it puts someone off trying drugs and saves them from a lifetime of addiction then the author has achieved something.
