As those of you who know me are aware, I am a heroin addict in recovery. Recovery does not travel in a straight line, especially with Major Mental Illness involved.
I have written a book of essays, with two poems included, about the inner workings of the mind of someone with Dual Diagnosis and Drug Addiction. Chapters of it have been taken from newspapers that have published them and been used as part of course packets at various colleges.
The way to obtain this book is to access the website of
www.giveusyourpoor.org and then go to the heading Education and scroll down to Resources and open that up. The rest is self-explanatory. You won’t be disappointed.

P.S. White Horse is a nickname for heroin.
