Strung Out by Erin Khar
This is a memoir of a woman addicted to heroin and sex.
Erin tells her story with so much honesty. She describes the empty feeling she had from a very early age. She tried so hard to fill the emptiness in her life with sex and drugs that it made my heart actually ache for her. Erin shows that no matter where you come from, how much money you have, or how loving your parents are, addiction can always happen at any time. She had loving, caring parents, and an affluent family, but the dark, emptiness never left her.
Erin empowers us with her beautiful truth telling and she inspires us by saving herself during her lowest moment.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
