Jan Nargi, a single mother of two, is a registered nurse who worked in enough emergency rooms to know the signs of addiction, but failed to recognize them in her own family. Her son, Tommy, is a heroin addict. He started abusing Oxycontin when he was sixteen and graduated to mainlining heroin by age eighteen. This is their story. The one of his life chasing the high, and her life chasing after him.
They hope their collaboration will strengthen their relationship, assist Tommy on the road to recovery, and offer help and encouragement to others struggling with the battle of addiction. They pray their story will convince you to chase a new high, a natural high on life. This story is factual. It is graphic. It is real. There is no hero in heroin.

Once started couldn't put it down- mother is a sweetheart with conviction- from a person in recovery you get a different view on how your actions can impact family... I think I fell in love with the author by the time the book was over...
The honesty and struggle
She was ok.
Not one. All... Daily struggle of this mother trying to live her life... while being wrapped up in someone else's
As a mother I could never imagine having to deal with my child becoming an addict. Jan told her story well and allowed the readers to feel her pain, disappointment, blame and freedom from her son’s addiction. I wasn’t particularly moved by the story but I appreciate her honesty and transparency.
