    Reading this book was addictive Some of the stories were really deep and descriptive about the desperate moment of truth, when one could actually admit that they had a problem When a person sees the writing on the wall, so to speak, about whether or not they would beat this thing or if they would live to see another day How is sneaks up on you, your upbringing, your family, your culture, as a norm It is not glamourized but portrayed as the tragedy it is Yet, there was hope shining through some o [...]

    Sometimes hard to read, but always fascinating Notes from the Belly of the Beast indeed I felt like I was rifling through underwear drawers, and snooping through secret stashes Some of the stories resonated deeper with me than others, but all were, at times entertaining, emotional, devastating and unabashedly naked in their telling Whether you are an addict, know and addict, or grew up with one in your home, there is something here to interest, and maybe even surprise you.Even though I thought I [...]

    I just borrowed this book from my sister who is reading it for her university courses I skipped some stories but read most of them It was an interesting read and the stories gave an insight to what it s like to be, or know, and addict 3.5 5 stars because some of the writers were a bit boring.

    Some absolutely wrenching stories, heroic stories and so very inspiring I continue to read this book on a regular basis my life is sooooo exciting.

    Oh my, this book is depressing I hope it serves as a galvanizing call to action for someone out there Yet fighting addiction is just something most people will have to devote the rest of their lives towards.
