Publisher's Summary

Khalil Rafati went to Los Angeles in the 1990s and had it all. He was working with Hollywood movie stars and legendary rock musicians, but it wasn't long before he found his way into the dark underbelly of the City of Angels.
When he hit rock bottom - addicted to heroin and cocaine, overtaken by paranoia and psychosis, written off by his friends and family - he grabbed a shovel and kept digging. At 33, Khalil was 109 pounds, a convicted felon, high school dropout, and homeless junkie living on the infamous Skid Row in downtown L.A.
So how does someone with nothing, who feels like they deserve nothing, and who just wants to end it all turn their life around?
I Forgot to Die is an incredible true story of pain, suffering, addiction, and redemption - and how one man ultimately conquered his demons and wrote himself a new life story.

One of the best books I've ever read

Absolutely brilliant book. Khalil gives us a no holds barred look at addiction in every way. I went through every emotion reading this book. It really drew me in and was narrated beautifully.

I really wanted to like this book.

Some of the stories are so far fetched. Demons seen in crack psychosis cannot leave actual deep claw marks all over your back. If you roll your car seven times and clear out four mailboxes landing on a residential property- the cops don’t just call you a taxi home. The secretary of Malibu NA is not going to call you a filthy junkie and call for your arrest. And given the constant state of being covered in blood, dirty and strung out, how come so many celebrities want to hang out with Khalil? I wanted to like it but there’s no real recovery in this book, just a lot of cocky bravado. His thinking is still in active addiction. That said, credit to anyone who can write a story and earn a wage from it.
