Ian Young is impressive in both his experience and solutions relating to addictions. He brings a compassionate and intelligent speaking style to his subject, which I found truly inspiring. I look forward to his book.

I know Ian personally and this book doesn't begin to tell half the story. A helpless, hopeless addict that has found redemption by taking simple suggestions, following a new spiritual path and attempting to help others. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince, you'll shake your head in disbelief but I guarantee that you'll be rooting for Ian to clean up. A wonderful story with a very happy ending. Read it - more will be revealed... Spencer (One of "the tribe") x

This book is all about Ian Young's fall from grace. It's about his drug and alcohol use and his trip from having a great life to a life full of demons. It reads like a novel at first but it's so much more. It's how a person can get into the life of addiction and lose everything. It is also about his rise again to a full beautiful life without drugs or alcohol with the help of a 12 step program. He tells his story with compassion. He also points out to the reader how you can recover. I loved this book and am recommending it to my freinds and familys in recovery.


Thank you Ian for being honest, open and brave to write this book! It's a miracle you went through what you went through alive and with such compassion and passion to help others! Never give up! You're right it's not about you it's about all of us addicts or not! But this book is certainly about you and it is GREAT!! Anon

Excellently written book about a drug and alcohol addict who turned his life around from the extreme chaos of active addiction to becoming a happy and respected member of society. Inspirational and a good read for anyone suffering or for friends and family of those addicted to either drugs or alcohol, or both. It has a riveting story that delves into the chaos and turmoil of addiction and the road to recovery and happiness. It delivers a strong message of hope that recovery is possible for all, demonstrating the steps to recovery and the route to a happier and contented life free from addiction. If you are suffering from alcohol or drug addiction, or know or are related to someone who needs help then this is a must read. Recovery is possible. I couldn’t put this book down and read it in two days. Great story too. Simon Khalil

It's a game changer - a sizzling read that stands out in it's genre of addiction stories - because half is about how it was, then the other half is about what happened and how it is now! It has madness, moments of desperate clarity and then hope in abundance. Read it !
