I saw "beautiful boy" a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. This book was a great follow up to a story that was most often centered on an outsider's struggle and point of view on addiction. Whilst the film was fascinating and gave viewers a deep understanding on what a parent could feel during an addict's "journey", I still wanted to know more about nic sheff. Why would a boy who grew up in an unchaotic wealthy environment , who was intelligent and had a really good relationship with both his parents, why would or maybe how could he have created a relationship with crystal meth, that was so strong, it broke all other relationships he had prior to it. Fortunately, "Tweak" gave the reader just that. It was filled with great insight into the reality of addiction, relapses, the influence of others on your drug use and the inner turmoils one can attempt to suffocate with drugs. Although at times the story may have seemed repetitive, I found this quite useful as it creates a sort of imagery for the reader as to what addiction is: a repetitive cycle which you have to work on day by day to avoid plummeting. I really do recommend this book.
