Not really sure if i'm supposed to comment about the book here, but it's the only place I could find to comment something. I don't have a story of my own but I have just finished your book today and it inspired me to never try anything hardcore. My boyfriend just spent 45 days in rehab and he is recovering so welll. I can relate to you because I know the pain of not knowing if they are using because, people on drugs tend to lie quite well. (at least I think so.) I used to say my boyfriend has recovered, and although he wasn't majorly addicted to anything. He was afraid he soon would be. Now after reading your book I look at it as recovering. He still drinks which bothers me. But as you say it's their life. I try and influence him to make good choices but sometimes feel over protective. I'm his girlfriend, not his mom. I sometimes feel like I have to hold back my feelings but I know I should share them. I don't really have anyone to talk to about all of it. No one seems understanding. If this is the right website to comment on, and if you email back please do so. Thank you.
