At the age of 14, a girl barely aware of responsibility, safety or survival, Lori L. Stephens was thrown out into the streets by her mother. This would be the beginning of a life no one deserves to endure, ever. With nowhere to go, confused and frightened beyond comprehension, she settled in inside of a small washroom of a condo complex. Curled up as small as she could make herself, she lay abandoned. What happen next can only be adequately described in the pages within..., and this was only the beginning. Through her struggle to stay alive in a world she barely understood, with non-existent parents from a broken home, this young girl met adversity headlong, with no recourse at her disposal. In the memoirs of the next 30 years of her life of drug and alcohol abuse, with METHAMPHETAMINES as her mainstay, you will learn how she was forced to resort to physical violence to stay alive. Stabbing one of her rapists was only the beginning. Domestic violence, conflict with the Law, jail, how she escaped with the courage, the will to stay alive, and the guts to persevere through an impossible road out of the toughest trap from which one might ever have to escape, Lori L. Stephens overcomes impossible adversity. And in result, this woman's strength to overcome-and her heroism to help others do the same, through 6 years in recovery, and living a life she never dreamed possible, are all described profoundly in this book, and can only inspire and encourage every person in their daily lives.

Interesting share. I think that the writing was good, but the electronic copy I read was full of mistakes. Anyhow that being said, it was a good read. Read full review

Her story is amazing! It was like I was reading my own story of addiction. Lori is a survivor. I only wish she lived near me so she could be my sponsor! Thank you Lori for this wonderful and inspiring look into your life! Thanks for sharing! Read full review

However, with her newfound hope on life, she completely turned her life around became part of the solution, instead of being a part of the problem. She now enjoys helping others in their struggles with addiction by sponsoring women in recovery, and going into the jails to speak. She is also very active in volunteering, helping cancer survivors. She hope to one day open a clean and sober living house for those working on a program of recovery.
