Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2021
The opioid epidemic has been going on for over 20 years, and it nearly killed me until I was able to get clean back in 2012. Since then, it’s killed countless others, but there’s still not nearly enough awareness and a massive stigma around addiction. Fortunately, people like David Poses took the time to share his personal story of addiction and recovery in this book, and it was extremely relatable. The book recounts David’s struggles with depression, addiction, and suicidal ideation, and I can’t recommend this book enough to loved ones who know someone struggling with an addiction. This book is extremely important because David is extremely raw and honest about his experience, and it’ll help people better understand what addicts like us go through and how difficult it can be to get clean, even though we want to.

David is an awesome writer, and he’s also an activist who spreads awareness about harm reduction. Although this was a fantastic book, I really enjoyed the epilogue where David talks about his experience with how buprenorphine saved his life. If he ever gets a chance, I think he’d write an incredible book about harm reduction and how we can tackle the addiction crisis in the United States as well as in other parts of the world.
