Publisher's Summary

"The first chance I got, I bought my very first bag of crystal methamphetamine... A monster was born. Try as I might, there is simply no way for me to minimize the impact with which crystal meth slammed into my life, at least not without straying far from the truth. It was like throwing a forty-pound sledge hammer though a plate glass window. What a cunning thing this was that lived inside of me. How could I ever hope to win against it? My good intentions meant nothing what I lacked was power."
Meth Monster is the autobiographical story of one gay African American man's personal journey to faith and deliverance from drugs and alcohol, and particularly from the scourge of crystal methamphetamine. The author takes his readers through his troubled early years in Indiana, hustling on the streets of Hollywood, and dealing drugs in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. Blaine boldly examines his personal demons from the time they take up residence in his subconscious and through their horrific and destructive manifestations. After numerous visits to jails, prisons and rehab, and after finally confronting his addiction, his sexuality, AIDS and a broken spirit, at last he finds redemption, healing and forgiveness through the grace and mercy of The Living God.

An Amazing Story

Audio books had never been my thing until I had my son. Now I am stuck in a position where reading is impossible. This book was a god send. Not only was the narration amazing (and in no way monotone) but soothing to my son which allowed me to become easily immersed in the story. Up until Chapter 9 I felt like I was there - watching the story unfold before me. While I found the last Chapter a little dry, I should still feel the warmth of true compassion of the reader coming through the narrators voice.

And as a former addict and alcoholic, it seems like a story all to familiar to me. While the people and places may be differant, a lot of the story holds similarities to my story.

Well worth the time to listen to!!!
