Unwasted: My Lush Sobriety by Sasha Z. Scoblic

scoblic, sacha z - my lush sobriety ( thumbs_side ) You can rarely find books that totally chronicle someone’s sobriety. Usually, it’s all about the trauma and struggles of the addiction. Yes, this includes some of that too –  a little more than I expected from the description. But the main focus is displaying how the experience of finally becoming sober can be for addicts when they seek help.

The idea of it is good, I was excited! However, it is hard to keep up the suspense and drama of the book by only focusing on the healthy, less intense present. She jumped to the past a lot, which I don’t blame her for doing in order to keep the attention of the audience… but the draw of the description of the book is that it is based on after her sobriety.

Still a great book, I learned a lot about a recovering addict’s life. But I think it was a little misrepresented by the description.
