    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubI honestly didn't expect much when I picked up Craig Goodman's memoir Needle There are a lot of books out there that revel in describing in shocking and horrific detail the lives of addicts but many rely on shock value alone and are not particularly well written or engaging They don't give the reader a chance to see the characters as than one dimensional junkies with no history no relationships with other people and no inner livesThere are plenty of shocking and graphic moments in Needle but they are not gratuitous Goodman is simply relating his first hand experiences with drugs jail etc with vivid accuracy What makes Needle so wonderful and uniue in my opinion is that Goodman describes even the darkest moments with a wicked intelligent humor that had me laughing out loud on nearly every page One doesn't come away from Needle feeling that there's anything funny about being an addict it certainly reinforced my own gratitude that I never managed to become one but the humor m

    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubThis was not the book I was hoping to read I chose it because I thought it would be an in depth personal reveal about the hows and whys of drug addiction the struggle to live and the power of drugs over ones mind and body I was particularly interested in the road to recovery and escaping death This is not that bookThe first 60% of the book is denial and stories that are intended to be funny shocking and name dropping so the author's friends can see their na

    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubIt bugs me that people might read this and think it applies to every addict It doesn't It's one person's story of his experience using drugs I was irritated with the author's opinions stated as fact regarding some kinds of drug treatment especially since he never actually participated in the forms of treatment he demonized with misinformation Those same attitudes can keep addicts from seeking treatment that might be beneficial Some things in this book did not ring tr

    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubI absolutely loved this sordid vivid autobiographical tale of dereliction depravity and depression I set aside the zombie apocalypse genre and apparently am now stuck on junky literature I was not planning on it but I reckon I will have to read Needle Too soon just to figure out what happened to this fella Apparently he is one of the few junkies that lived through it all

    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubCraig gave a true understanding of the mindset of one in active addiction It’s hard for someone to understand how the disease yes I said “DISEASE” of addiction can suddenly creep up on some one totally unexpectedly Craig does an excellent job of portraying just how matter of factly that can does happen He also shows through the characters how some people are just predispositioned to be naturally be addicts others are just not Again addiction is a disease just as alcoholism Some people may have a glass of wine with dinner no big deal where others that one glass only leads to a disastrous train wreck of events To say that Craig got his ticket to the train of all train wrecks would be an understatement He had a lifetime pass kept getting back on There were so many times reading this book it was gut wrenching as a Mother of an addict trying to understand WHY? I was seeing or picturing my son in those same desperate situations knowing very well this was the same life

    eBook Craig Jordan Goodman Æ Needle ePUB ´ Æ needle epub, Needle EpubSoothes my soulI had to give this book too marksI love readingall genres as an addict myself reading is also a true'positive' habit it's such a truthfulheart crushing as I find it so very difficult at times to be honest with who I am but this book really portrayed the sliding life of any person with a habit the lows become so much freuent as the highs just feel so much difficult to reach It made me laugh out loud it also made me cry and at times I had to put down as my own embarrassments came to surface thank you for writing this your music career may not have took off but what a talent you have for writing I'm not in the aa even though I should maybe be but I do believe that was your true calling to help and show all is fellow addicts that we care not alone Nicola jamieson
