Meth, crank, ice, glass, fire, tina, chalk, crystal or crystal meth.
Whatever you call it, it’s the same thing. Addictive.

Drugs ruin people’s lives.
I should know, they destroyed mine.
I’m Hannah and I got hooked on ice. What started as a trickle, ended with a tsunami washing everything away; my family, my life.
I’m not sure you’re ready to read my story; it’s real and confronting.
Open the book, read the pages and see how easy it is for anyone to get addicted.
Ice affects all types of people. It doesn’t discriminate.
It will SCREW. YOU. UP.


~ My Thoughts ~ 

If Addiction was an autobiography it would be the Go Ask Alice of the current times.

The magnificent destruction that plays out within the pages of Addiction is soul crushing, mind numbing and will severely impact your entire being.

Hannah is perfectly scripted. Young, a bit sheltered, modest, a hardworking student who loves her family and her friends. She is a character that leaves the reader with a good feeling, a feeling of likability.

The confusion and turmoil that Hannah feels is at times a bit confusing while at the same time stirs feelings of lust and intrigue. As a reader, you want to scold yourself for the betrayal you feel in both your mind and body, but you don’t. You read on because mirroring the title of this book Addiction is addicting. A story that once you start you can’t put down.

I can’t put into words what it was about this story that gripped my entire being with such a urgent force. Was it the spiral downward or perhaps the allure of Edgar? I honestly can’t figure out why I was drawn to such catastrophic collapse of a human being.

Since I mentioned Edgar I should probably tell you a little about this evil, sadistic, alluring and torturous character. It is his physical attributes, or perhaps the confidence he exudes. Maybe it’s his overwhelming sexuality. It could be all of these things and more. Edgar is a character that seeps into your mind and bleeds into your soul. You want to hate him. You don’t want to be shocked by his actions. You want to believe his words with every fiber of your mind, and you do, until you don’t.

This story is complex, compelling, heartbreaking and gut wrenching. It will fuck with your mind. You beg, plead and hope for the characters. You scream NO in your mind and pray that the characters hear you as you slowly spiral down to the darkest of places. Blood, death, lies, pain and addiction will have you holding your breath and praying to whatever it is you believe in that eventually the darkness will fade away in a fog and a sliver of light will lead you back to where you belong.

Read the warning the author wrote and than read it again. This book contains extremely realistic situations that some may find excessively upsetting and disturbing. If after considering how far your willing to extend yourself, dive in and hold on tight because I promise you, you will not believe your eyes.
