it was ok

Kudos for being an honest account of the manipulation involved with addiction and the constant struggle to figure out what is "normal." The moments when Nic struggles with whether or not he even wants to be sober if it means just existing rather than living are the most compelling and interesting parts of the book. However, I'm not sure that the author has enough sober time to be able to honestly look at his own behavior. There's still quite a bit of ego in the writing which at times can make it hard to read, and the writing feels a bit like a dictated story rather than a fully edited memoir with lots of "And then"s and "Anyway"s.
