Giveaway: Addict At Ten by Derek Steele


Product Description (taken from here):

Derek Steele got drunk for the first time at the age of eight. By the age of ten, he was addicted to pot, and by sixteen, he was addicted to alcohol, meth, and cocaine. He began selling drugs in junior high, dropped out of high school, and soon found himself behind bars. By the time he was twenty, he was homeless and in hiding from a vicious drug dealer who wanted him dead. With the help of God, mentors, and a twelve step program, he conquered his addictions and began rebuilding his life. In his inspiring story, Derek shares intimate details of his life, from the hopelessness of addiction to becoming the man he had always wanted to be.
