From experimentation with drugs in the late sixties to a series of shock treatments in a psych ward in the early seventies, the author openly relates the fears, anxieties, and depression that led him there. Finding no relief through accepted medical means, he embarked on a lengthy journey of alcohol and drug abuse, culminating in an addiction to heroin that shattered any lingering illusions of a functional existence. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as this seemingly hopeless addict finds sobriety at a time when some who are heartbreakingly close to him find only devastation.
