"It is an amazingly written book that is very educational, hilarious, sad, and relatable." - Micheal Brown

If you work in the medical field or law enforcement, it's a must read. If you are, or want to be, a decent human being- read it." - Amazon Review 

"This is the kind of book that self-publishing was made for.  - Amazon Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and real.
Reviewed in the United States on November 23, 2019
Mann begins this saga with a thesis: addictive behaviors are caused by severe early childhood trauma. Then he tells his story. The writing is unadulterated and uncensored. The messages, clear and unnerving. There is always a reason; for love, for joy, perhaps success or at least accomplishment, though in his case, he endured incestual sexual abuse, constant berating and humiliation. He chronicles his subsequent debilitating anxiety, a life in constant crisis and the need to find anything or do anything to mute the ever-present wrongfully imposed paradigm that he was less than. It is no wonder he, or anyone who’s endured such trauma and lack of love turns to drugs.

Vivid and brave, this is a story of survival. Mann shows addiction as it actually manifests, in particular, opiate addiction, as a perpetual fight, ever-working, like an indentured servant, to maintain a semblance of life after unthinkable, and the continual, ongoing traumas. And, the adage that true love can make all the difference, is real.
