This brief review from Canada piqued my interest because while we tend to read a lot about addiction, one of the points of view we don’t get enough is from the addict.
From their book description, I thought it might interest the many readers who struggle with addictions themselves or know someone who is dealing with them now.
“Addicted: Notes from the Belly of the Beast” edited by Lorna Crozier and Patrick Lane is currently in its 4th edition due to its popularity. The book is comprised of essays from multiple contributing authors that talk about their own personal battles with addiction. This captivating novel shares intimate details about what it is like to live with an addiction; some essays go as far as tracing their struggles back to childhood. These stories shed some light on what it is like for some to suffer from an addiction.
