I wrote this book to help others realize that there are ways out of depression and there are people that have gone through this before. I went cold turkey and dealt with withdrawal all alone, without support. These days there are more agencies and people to help. I was an addict and till this day will always be considered an addict. I have closed the book on my past, no chance to rewrite it so I begin another book with chapter 1. This poetry is about my past depression, substance abuse and the rough times of parenting and dealing with coming clean off drugs.
