Descripción del producto

What's it really like to be addicted to heroin and crack cocaine? From the author of acclaimed true life novel Child of Baltimore, Tia L. Lincoln gives us an extraordinarily charged new account of drug addiction, poverty, and the struggle of survival.

Poochie, a bookworm and dreamer, struggles with confusion about her proper place in the world. Then one day she tries heroin and suddenly sees her path. Her journey of self discovery begins with isolation, extreme restrictions, beatings, group homes, and years of self hatred. It ends with jails, rapes, poverty, and a downward spiral into drug addictioin. Freebasing, shooting up, sniffing dope, Poochie has done it all. By the time she is 21 she is addicted to heroin and crack cocaine and the mother of four young children. When she comes blasting into a local hospital's emergency room at the age of 33, Poochie had destroyed most of her body, mind, and soul beyongd repair. She faced a devastating choice. Accept that she won't see 34 or accept the reality of her life and take drastic action.

Junkie - A True Baltimore Story is the powerful, heartbreaking, uncensored story of how a young woman struggles with drug addiction and impossible odds. It's this generation's most honest, eye opening approach about drug dependency and survival in the drug plagued, violent streets of Baltimore.

I read alot of memoirs about addiction and recovery and let me tell you, I have read my share of hard core storylines.

Having said that, Junkie - A True Baltimore Story is one of the hardest and most honest addiction tales I have ever come across.

Poochie never felt as though she fit in - until she discovered the amazing abilities of Heroin and, of course, crack cocaine. Her downwhirl story begins much earlier than when she takes that first "shot", but rather shows us that a junkie can easily and most often be one "in the making" way before they take that first hit of the drug.

What I loved about this story is the development of Poochie and how she constantly chooses the path of destruction, despite the fact that she, on many levels, knows better - the story of every addict.

The tale is harsh, honest, brutal and extremely well told. For anyone who is or has been addicted and for anyone who loves an addict, some part or all of this story will resonate with you.

This book is not for the faint of heart - its hard to read and made me cringe, cry and feel fear, sometimes all at the same time!

However, this book is an important addition to the world of books on addiction - telling the truth about this disease.

I have read many books about addiction and recovery. In this book "Junkie - a true Baltimore story" Tia Lincoln touched my soul, as the book began I felt as though she was speaking about me, my life and my childhood. It was eerie. This book is the most honest book on addiction I have ever read. It is written by the addicted girl, Poochie, her life, how it pans out and how she saves her own life. This book is powerful in its honest, clear writing,and is the story of a young woman dealing with being addicted to drugs, how she feels, what she is thinking, what she does and she lays it all out there, no matter who may judge her.
I read this book in an afternoon, I could not put it down. This is a book I will pass along to someone who is addicted so they know they are not alone and there is hope.

I enjoyed this. I don't know why people are complaining about the language. If you've seen the HBO documentary "The Corner," you won't hear (or read) anything new. I don't know why anyone would expect an uneducated inner-city junkie to speak like Richard Attenborough.

I am a recovering heroin addict and even though my story may differ from hers my feelings and thoughts during my addiction and still to this day are the EXACT same. I also live and used in Baltimore during my addiction but I also got clean in Baltimore too. This book is a true representation of what an addict goes everyday and not all of us are blessed with the ability to get clean either. My heart goes out to all the still suffering addicts.......

Once again, I purchased this book because I love reading literature based on addiction and recovery. I was skeptical when purchasing it on my tablet (even though it was very cheap!) because of it being non-fiction but am glad I did. As I relate to some of the things Tia Lincoln wrote about in her story I find it impressive how honest and straight forward she is. For me, I would have much shame in sharing these details about myself and my family for the whole world to read... but now that she is clean, she's moved on. I respect her for sharing her story and it makes me take a personal inventory on my life and realize 'it could be MUCH worse'. I flew through this short book in only a little over 24 hours and I'm glad to have found it. :)
