This is a picture of my life: Not flowers and rainbows, but mine nevertheless. Drugs and partying became a cool alternative to the disappointments of life. My demons became my friends and confidants. But I quickly learned that I was sadly mistaken. Here I was, a pretty, bright, teenage girl battling rage, injustice, and the personal ordeals of cancer and rape. But when the demons took over, it became a story of survival. Battling to overcome the addictions of alcohol, heroin, and men had turned me into a junkie. Trading my family and friends for an imprisonment to drugs and loneliness, I sank deeper into my addiction. I couldn't stop making bad decisions. My life no longer had meaning. It was time to end it all or take one more wild shot at hope. This is my story.

The author feels she must frequently rephrase a concept several times to reinforce the meaning which forced me to continuously say to myself, "Okay. Okay, I get it. Now move on.".
