A new book about heroin called "The Go-Go Girl".

by Kevin James

I wrote a novel, The Go-Go Girl, when I was going through recovery at rehabs and institutions. I was hoping you might want talk about it.

I was an over a bundle a day user for 6 years, and it was very hard to get clean. I haven't used in 3 years, but I work for it. The thing that helped me the most was writing a book about heroin. I didn't write about getting clean. Instead, I wrote about what my ultimate heroin run would be.

Writing the book was a cathartic experience. I started writing it during my 4th stint in rehab and I knew I was going to in there a while so I started writing a story where I lived out this amazing run. People have told me it's intense and glamorizes heroin use, but I don't see it that way. I was more of a coping mechanism when
I wrote it. It was a way for me to work through cravings, so the drug scenes are graphic, because I was visualizing them intently and getting off in my imagination.

I don't know why it worked, but it did. Writing kept my occupied and I was getting a mental fix and a high from writing. Before the book I couldn't stay clean.

let me know if you are interested.
