Just got this today & had to start it. Johnston says she really wrote it and IMO she's a great writer. So funny & sad at the same time. Also relatable. I have a thing for memoir and rehab memoir and sometimes celeb/rehab/memoir. Not sure why. As Johnston says, we all have addictions. Think not? Maybe just pick up the sample to see her hilarious list. It's in the intro. Meanwhile, I'm gobbling this thing down and will add more when I finish...finished. Loved it salty language and all. One friend wouldn't listen when after I said the words "her stomach exploded." But really, I hate gross stuff like people puking in movies (have you noticed an upswing in that?) but this book did not gross me out. It was graphic. And some parts weren't pretty. But it was always fun. I think that's the trick. She has a light touch with the "guts" part.
