    "David Sheff's Beautiful Boy chronicles his teenage son's descent into crystal-meth addiction. Nic, a well-loved boy with seemingly everything going for him, brings his family down with him - his addiction becoming their obsession as they wonder what sort of limits their love should have...

    Not sure I'm ready to read something like this yet, but I thought some of 'yall might be interested.

    It's interesting that there's a companion book by his son, Nic, called "Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines". It seems to tell the same story from his son's perspective.

    This is on my reading list. Both of them. They sound very good.

    Glad to see you come across this. Keep looking.

    Many hugs.
