A story about not just recovering from addictions but tackling the even more difficult problem - the causes.

Jori is an ordinary woman whose ordinary life creeps gradually, almost without her being aware, into chaos. How does her life reach such depths, unnoticed, until it's too late? Her life will only truly start anew when she recognises not only that she has an addiction and she has to do something about it, but also face up to the issues in her life which have caused it to get out of control.

Angel Lepire should be applauded for being brave enough to write about a subject that isn't Hollywood glamorous but which affects so many people: eating disorders. Few would think of food as an addiction.

Jori comes across as a real person with real life problems. Her husband appears to be a completely benign character, but an interesting line that really shows how so many people don't understand what people with an eating disorder are going through, is when Jori, fresh out of her stomach reduction operation, is met by her husband who jokes: "Wanna go to McDonalds?"

You'll be on Jori's side, even when she makes bad decisions, wanting to hold her hand and give her the support she needs. Get addicted to this book!

by Simon Hugh Wheeler, author of Loosely Translated.

I must confess that while I still am not a big fan of the protagonist in this book, I really enjoyed the story. Cheating is not something I have any tolerance for and so I while I was never able to reach the point that I could overlook that transgression, I did find myself rooting for her recovery. The insights into addiction were moving as were her efforts to right the wrongs she'd done. Very well written and I will absolutely be keeping my eye out for additional novels from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read 19 Jun. 2013
By L.F.Falconer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first thing to lure me in with this book was the title, and once I was actually able to sit down and start reading it in earnest, I didn't want to put it down.

With a flowing, unpretentious style, Angel Lepire delivers a compelling, down-to-earth story of one woman's battle with her inner demons and the tremendous struggle to overcome them--a story that will resonate well with anyone who has ever dealt with an addict or an addiction. Very well done, and touching. It kept me continually hopeful as I tried to anticipate how everything would turn out at the end.

I think this would be an excellent choice for a summer beach read. Or winter, spring, or fall, for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read cover to cover in one sitting 19 Jan. 2013
By Lynette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. For a first time novelist, Angel Lepire kept this picky reader turning the pages. How many times have we thought, "if I can just change this one thing, everything will be perfect" when in reality the real problem is deeper than we're willing to look. Trading Poisons is like romance meets self-help and thensome. I didn't put it down until I was finished.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book 12 April 2013

Trading poison is an amazing story about Jorie's journey through addiction. Her heartbreaking story includes the pain she inflicts on her family, the forbidden romance she has with Bronx and her way back to recovery. The book captured my interest from page one all the way to the end.

This was a well written portrait of addiction and how it looks from the perspective of the addict, but also shares the pain of everyone in their wake.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I liked the ease of reading of the novel. Good insight into addictive behavior. Excellent portrayal of how addiction takes the flow of a seemingly normal life astray with relative ease. If you have ever struggled with this problem,a must read.
