This is Nic Sheff’s account of his descent in to the world of drugs, devastating his life and those around him. His father has published his own version of events in Beautiful Boy and it is interesting to see Nic’s decline and the perceived effects on the family from both perspectives.

Synopsis

Tweak by Nic Sheff

Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer to convince him otherwise.

In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. He paints an extraordinary picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself.
