About the book

Despite a happy, loving start to life, some dire choices in Kerryn’s teens sentthis young Australian woman into a wild path of self-destruction.

In a brutally honest account Kerryn describes the terrifying scenes she witnessed as what began as “a bit of fun” spiralled into a shocking journey through the dark world of drug addiction. Chilling stories of drug overdoses, precious lives lost, drug and alcohol fuelled fights, months spent gravely ill in hospital, at one point being given less than two hours to live, will have the reader gripped to every page.

Having miraculously survived several close encounters with death and three overdoses, Kerryn has since turned her life around and now passionately uses her knowledge and experience to warn and help others regarding the perils of substance use and abuse. These life-changing experiences have paved the way for her compelling Drug & Alcohol Awareness Presentations, which she has delivered in senior schools, corporate organisations and other venues across Australia.

Intertwined with her heart-rending personal stories, Kerryn provides vital information on the current, most commonly used drugs of addiction, and a message of hope for anyone caught up in the nightmare of drug or alcohol addiction.

This is a compelling story that takes the reader through one person’s journey from the depths of despair to the realms of hope and is hard to put down until the final page is read.
