  1. Maybe you’d be interested in reviewing my new book, Detroit Muscle, on your blog. It follows the story of Robby Cooper, an OxyContin addict just out of rehab trying to put his life back together. In the end, it is a story of hope in the face of addiction.

    Thank you Ruby, for taking time to write. I was that down ass girlfriend to a man in an abusive relationship for 3 years. I finally left the state in May, as a way of forcing myself to stop going back to him. Was clean for a year.

    I have been back in my addiction since July. Putting on a really good show for everyone around, sleep, eat, hydrate, work, pay bills, supermom, blah blah what a facade. Outside I’m shining, inside I’m dying. It’s only a matter of time before shtf. Unless I fucking STOP.
    Where the Fuck do I start though, dude I’m so discouraged Dammit how did this happen again. Wtf.

    Anyway….Reading your blog posts are making me feel less…alone. It’s a start in a new direction. Thank you again.
