Overview

The chains of habit and addiction seem light until they become to heavy to break. That sentence is the essence of why this book was written. Writing it was author Brian Shell's recovery vehicle from a world he once called "...like going down a rabbit hole on wheels."

"The Cocaine Zone" is a real-life cautionary tale that hopes to help you stay away from the addictive drugs of coke and crack cocaine. Yet, it also tells of all the true nitty-gritty surrounding the drug world... and dishes the dirt.

It notes that marijuana is typically the gateway drug which leads people into a cocaine or crack habit simply because needing to buy an illegal drug puts you around people who sell other drugs. And those drug dealers are always willing to give out free samples in hopes that you like them.

Once you're hooked, you're theirs. They prey upon that fact.

That's why a crack addict told the author many times: "One hit's too many, and a million is never enough... no rock too big."

It also details and describes the true realities of the underground drug scene in and around Detroit... with all its guts & glory and ins & outs... both good and bad... and it provides tips and tricks to help understand the nature of addiction and how best to recover.

Included in this new edition are "Before" and "After" photos of the author... before giving up cocaine... and after being clean from it for over 7 years.

They show the transformation possible by just saying no to what is not needed. It educates you to know that what you want may not be what you need.

If you liked the movies "Scarface" and "Blow," you'll enjoy this eBook: "The Cocaine Zone."

    Horribly written!

    I took a chance on this book and I am sorry I did. The grammar is horrible and the author jumps around as if he is on coke. Don't waste your money!
