|4 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Ken Montroseabout this book: My Plan to Ruin Your Life explains how addiction uses the reader's strengths and weaknesses against him. Told in the first person voice of Addiction, My Plan warns against weak moments, arrogance, non-chemical addictions, stumbling over milestones, and the attractiveness of certain drugs.
Describing opiates, Addiction asks this question:
"Imagine if I owned all the gas stations. Everyone would need more gas than they needed the time before to fill their tanks. And if they ran completely dry, they would have seizures, paranoia, diarrhea, muscle aches, and on and on. How much gas do you think I would sell?" p.3
My Plan to Ruin Your Life shows how substance use often starts with misperceptions:
-To the overworked executive/mom, I will look like a glass of sophisticated relaxation and escape.
-To the eighteen year old intellectual, I will look like edible insight.
-To the union worker, I will look like a can of solidarity and brotherhood.
-To the lonely fourteen year old, I will look like a big cloud of acceptance.
-To the lawyer who just won the big case, I will look like a powdery line of success.
