She tells how that addiction destroyed him in the end and how she managed the paralyzing grief after his death.
A heartbreaking, yet insightful story of love, loss, hope, and relationships, Intoxicated by Amber offers a firsthand look into the world of addiction and its effects on both the addict and those who love them.
