REVIEW Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Until it was eclipsed almost entirely by doom He also explores the shape of addiction how its pattern not its cause can be traced to the past Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man is an utterly compelling narrative lyrical irresistible harsh honest and beautifully written from which you simply cannot look aw. 35 STARSThis is my first Audio book that I have listened to without also following along in an actual book I don t really know how I feel about it But I m going to do my best to explain First off this book was actually uite difficult for me to finish Multiple times I found myself debating whether to just stop listening and start a different book instead Why you ask Well because I m a recovering addict myself Currently I have 15 days short of 2 and a half years clean and sober Although crack wasn t my only drug of choice or even my main one this audiobook was extremely triggering for me Luckily I have been in recovery long enough to have made plans for such things in order to keep me from relapsing Not to mention my beautiful daughter who is now almost 10 months old She keeps me sober I know I have to do it for me and I do But my love for her is WAY powerful than my love for myself I honestly believe she saved my life even though she was born when I was already in sobriety THANK GODI don t care to go into detail as to what parts of the book triggered me but let s just say that it definitely had me thinking back to my past uite a bit Due to my personal bias with this book I feel as though I cann0t give a fair review so I am just going with my heart on this one I don t feel like I can really rate this book or say what to change or not change because this is a memoir you can t change your experiences Although I would ve liked the author to talk a little about how he got better and how he is doing today and the importance of getting help and not being ashamedeven if it wasn t part of his storymaybe at the end or something Addiction is such a real thingand let me tell you IT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE

REVIEW Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Bill Clegg had a thriving business as a literary agent a supportive partner trusting colleagues and loving friends when he walked away from his world and embarked on a two month crack binge He had been released from rehab nine months earlier and his relapse would cost him his home his money his career and ve. Heavy stuff and holy f Okay will try to give this a proper review This is one hell of a ride on the dark side of crack cocaine addiction While I usually like my addiction memoirs with a heavy heaping of recovery this focused mostly on the addiction itself Sometimes though the story itself can be so powerful it needs to be told This is one mans journey from his first wonderful high to the brink of death What I loved the most was Cleggs writing and it s interesting to know that Clegg also wrote Did you ever have a Family I was literally on the edge of my seat reading in horror as addiction consumes each and every good thing in Cleggs life It s amazing what addiction can do Honestly this book broke my heart I m looking forward to his seuel 90 Days which chronicles his recovery struggles

REVIEW Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir

REVIEW Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ry nearly his lifeWhat is it that leads an exceptional young mind want to disappear Clegg makes stunningly clear the attraction of the drug that had him in its thrall capturing in scene after scene the drama tension and paranoiac nightmare of a secret life and the exhilarating bliss that came again and again. This is the story of a privileged white dude who apparently became addicted to crack than anyone has ever been addicted to crack ever before He blames this on his childhood which although not perfect is certainly no worse than the childhoods of countless people who have never smoked crack even once He treats all his friends and loved ones shockingly poorly because all he cares about is crack but they stay loyal to him anyway I guess because they re all codependent In a way this book was kind of like crack in that I wanted to keep reading it until there was no book left to read but the whole time I knew deep down that it was really bad for me and when it was all over I felt wretched In conclusion with all the addiction memoirs out there I don t really see why anyone needs to read this one
