Rated 5 out of 5 by 3
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovin2labs A great read if you want to laugh, cry, and feel true joy of Kristen Johnstons' survival of her life's tragedies! From bullies, drugs, and "guts exploding" in a foreign country (without family and friends to support her for months in a hospital all alone, but that is what she wanted), to dragging herself back into LIFE, rehab, and maintaining her super successful career, this is one book you will not be able to put down until the last page! If you want to HEAR her read her own story, you can get it from itunes also!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheRealTori1 This book is so helpful.
This book makes you laugh and cry. Ms. Johnston wrote an amazing book. It is very well written. She almost died from her addictions to Vicodin and red wine. She is honest and holds back nothing. Anyone thinking about abusing prescription drugs should read this. I don't have a drug or alcohol addiction and yet this book changed my life. It is the first book to actually help me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyWmyDVR a real story by a real former addict
i'm not an addict but bought this book because I wanted to know Kristen's story. I first bought the audio book and listened to it not once, not twice, but THREE times. it's a great account of someone who got to death's door and got a second chance at life. it's both educational and comical. I would recommend it to someone who is trying to get clean or just wants to read a good memoir. I have also bought the physical book as well!
