Crystal Clean (book image did not load)For more than five years, Kim was a meth addict living in denial. As a home owner, small business owner, bail-bondsman and loving mother of a child with special needs, Kim thought she had everything under control until her arrest in 2006 for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. But even the threat of prison wasn't enough to stop her from using. Finally, with no options left, she began the long, slow road of recovery. Meth addiction is the most difficult of all drugs to treat and the statistics are grim, but Kim's story, ultimately uplifting and relentlessly human, will give hope that there is a way out, and a way home.

And nothing but the truth. For Kim puts it as it is, no dismissing the horrible pattern that addicts follow. Awesome book. If you suffer from addiction, any addiction, Read this. I am half way through the book and I don't know how to heal, but the truth is so damn hard to deny. I am in awe of how impossibly blind and cruel I am to myself. I don't know how to stop the madness but Kim has exposed it in her own experience and I am inspired by her recovery. No body asks to be an addict, She writes this often enough, but I hate what I have become and have no excuses for myself. I am solely to blame. How do I let go and move on to a freedom. I think the book will reveal this and I will update when I am finished. For now I am comforted by the fact that it is possible. Thank you Kim for letting me in and helping me learn about whit makes this time bomb tick.
