of sciece under 
sciece under belt would definitely help me to understand the information in this book The book doesn t really go into his xperience with substance abuse as much as you would think from the title It outlines and describes the basics of all kinds of addiction and has moments where it discusses his xperience The title was misleading from what I was looking for not terrible But it was like an informational book A great book to help me begin my Capstone The book is told by Kyle Keegan a former drug addict reflecting on the past He speaks honestly about addiction describing the downward ffect drugs can burden you with Starting as a teen with these poison is just as toxic for you mentally physically and socially Not only does this book provide his story but others as well who battled with substance abuse However Kyle s main drug was heroin and because today it is an increasing drug used by teens this information was helpful He did provide a little background on other drugs but he focused on the ffect heroin had on him Overall a well written and informational book It was a really good book I liked how it Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One explained all of their stories One story was about this 17 year old girl started to hear voices in her head that urged her to commit acts of violence to herself After she went to the doctors they diagnosed her with something called schizoaffective disorderwhich is a blend of schizophrenia and a mood disorder She was in and out of the hospital so many times She said all that she wanted was to feel better she said that she knew the medicines that they were giving her weren t helping butver I personally really liked it I have never been in a situation like his and i appreciate that he is brave Xenophon And His World (Historia Einzelschriften) enough to share it with people Kyle Keegan was like many teenagersager to fit in at school he Geography of the Gaze: Urban and Rural Vision in Early Modern Europe experimented with alcohol and drugs Soon his abuse of these substances surpassedxperimentation and became a ruthless addiction to heroin that nearly destroyed his lifeNow in recovery Keegan tells his remarkable story in Chasing the High Starting with the Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time early days of alcohol and drug use Keegan charts his decline into crime and homelessness as his need for heroin surpassed all thoughts of family and Ike himI really recommend for people ages 11 28 because that is kind of the ages one would start feeling madsaddepressedct I read the book called Chasing The High by Kyle Keegan In this book you learn about a boy who went down a rough road growing up He started a boy who loved
to spend time 
spend time his dad and his family and liked to outside It all started when he was around 9 years old he took a turn for the worst he started to not like to be around his family and wanted to be alone When he was near 16 he went to a local bar that didn t card you to see how old you are and he got drunk He claimed that it took away his mental pains so he started to go there One Wild Weekend every night After he went there many times it started to wear off and he needed something stronger He went from drinking to weed and from weed he tried just aboutvery other drug I would suggest this book to someone who likes to read a story with a lot of detail and to someone who also likes to read about the struggle of someone who comes over their addictions and getting their life back on track In my book Chasing The High Kyle Keegan introduces you into a world of drugs The book mainly focuses on Kyle s life and the struggles he goes through veryday The book also tells you about some of the biology behind drug addiction It tells you all the problems that occur when you are addicted It gives the reader very good intelectual facts and a whole new look on life Kyle starts off as a good kid with his own group of friends He isn t the type of popular kid and he is not really all that athletic but he is very intelligent He comes from a good family that has around a middle class income and treats him very well You wouldn t xpect a kid like him to become an addict but that s because of stereotypes He lives an average life that you would Naturally Naughty Wicked Willing expect as a teenager but then he gets introduced to alcohol He neverxpected himself to drink because he knows what it can do but he is at a party and thinks why not He then starts abusing alcohol to get rid of his problems After that he starts using marijuana and F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby even starts mixing them This is when his life flips He starts hanging out with the popular kids because he is the plug After this happens he starts relying on drugs forverything and Walled (The Line, even gets introduced to new ones which leads him to a life of disaster This book would be good for anyone who is fascinated behind the science of addiction It would also be good for anyone who may not be going down a good path in life and has drugs involved A great part about the book is how it tells other stories of people who are addictedven some famous people Another good thing is that the book is very vivid about good thing is that the book is very vivid about addiction and what it can do One bad part about it is that it could be draggy at some points but overall it was a very interesting fun factual book to read and I would definitely recommend it to.
