This wasn't easy to read for me.
I spend twelve years of my live life swallowing, snorting and shooting up every drug known to man and after getting declared clinically dead three times and more than a couple of stints in rehab, the best I've managed for the next seven years was substituting most of the drugs with booze and a lot of amphetamines, for I didn't really like being drunk. I'm sober for two years.
Now that's just to say that I can tell bullocks from the real thing. G.N.Brown's "Hammered" is real. Real, unflinching and brutally honest. And it puts most book on the subject to shame by being excellently written. It's pretty much the only book you need on the subject. But beware: if you put it on your Kindle, other books may desert, ashamed for being just a paperweight. Better get the paperback and put it up next to the memoirs of Iceberg Slim and Edward Bunker. Yes, it is that good.
