Desperation. Loneliness. Hunger.

23-year-old drug addict Josh is getting ready to hit bottom. A slave to drugs, he has nothing left to lose and searches for meaning in the worst days of his life. The desperation of his addiction has continued to progress to the point where he makes the decision to take his own life with an overdose of morphine. Barely surviving his attempt at suicide, he is sent to a drug treatment center where he meets a young man who was just like him at his age. The truth about his addiction is exposed and confronted, leaving Josh to make the most important decision of his life.

The dark and sometimes disturbing story takes you through the deepest levels of drug addiction. Written in a first-person perspective, you are thrust into the addict's head. His thought process is disturbingly honest and shockingly accurate in this portrayal that travels through the abysmal mind of a hopeless junky.

After surviving both drug addiction and prison, Troy Sheppard has published several books about his experiences. The first, "When I Get Free", is about his experience in prison. It is a journal kept while he was incarcerated on felony drug charges. His second published book, the memoir novella "All In My Head", deals with the desperation of drug addiction and is written from his personal experience and struggle with chemical dependence. While keeping a very accurate portrayal of the desperate acts that addiction brings, he also conveys a very real hope that no matter how bad you think you've become, you always have the choice to change what you will become.His third book, "Idiosyncrasy", is a modern classic that is truly unique and immensely powerful. It tells the story of a lonely and confused teenager who finds solace in surviving intentional drug overdoses. Eventually he sucumbs to the deadly practice and finds himself horribly helpless in an irreversible coma. He is completely aware but unable to communicate with the outside world. Facing certain death when his family decides to pull the plug, he slowly accepts his lonely fate and goes through a beautiful transformation that makes the book a definite must-read.
