About This Book


It’s easy to quit using drugs and alcohol.  Just ask Gwen, Miguel, and John.  They’ve done it dozen of times.

The hard part is not starting again.

These true stories describe three people’s descent into addiction and their struggles to recover.  Gritty and sad, painful and inspiring, the stories show both how low the human spirit can fall and how, against all odds, it can rise again, against all odds.
