Smoking crack cocaine and being younger at the time of first cocaine use are both significant risk factors for addiction. Cocaine is a central nervous system stimulant. You can reduce, although not eliminate, the risks associated with cocaine use with harm reduction strategies. After the initial "crash," cocaine withdrawal symptoms can last for weeks or months. Cocaine takes effect quickly and wears off quickly, giving people who use it a tendency to want to use more, often over a short period of time.

Crack addiction is a serious, deadly problem for thousands of people

Crack addiction is a serious, deadly problem for thousands of people. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a crack cocaine problem are vital for getting treatment. Nosebleeds are a very common sign of cocaine abuse because of how the drug tears the nasal lining and passages when it is snorted. As a part of this, a person using cocaine may also have a constantly runny nose. Long-term use may permanently damage the nasal lining, robbing a user of the ability to smell anything.

With her Unsinkable Molly Brown, Meg wondered, "Where are all the other white middle-class cocaine addicts who turn themselves into Rehab?" There weren't any-just court ordered people were there...so that's why Meg wrote "CONFESSIONS OF A SOUTHERN BABY-BOOMER-How I Survived Crack Cocaine Addiction, the Mafia & Other Totally True Tales". She knew that there were other Baby-Boomers who had this secret too and as AA and NA say, "You're only as sick as your secrets." So that's why Meg Speaks today-to tell her story so others know that you can overcome addiction and come out of the dark. By telling her deepest secret, Meg learned they can't hurt her anymore.

This book was terrible. There are so many grammatical errors it gets in the way of her story. The 'story line' is hard to follow and is all over the place. The author keeps repeating the same useless phrases over and over again throughout the book. It isn't focused, helpful, well written, or entertaining. It reads more like a narcissistic magazine article than anything else. The author spends most of her time name-dropping and referencing quotes from movies and books. Most of the effort that went into this book seems to be geared toward convincing her audience she is credible/important/funny. If the author is in fact any of these things, this book works to prove the opposite.
I doubt anyone proof read this mess before publishing it. For example; a paragraph (word for word) is repeated twice on the same page. Bless her heart, the author had a crack cocaine addiction for nine months... and probably wrote this book during that time period. Purchase this book if you need an example of truly awful literature.

I was pleasantly surprised how the story of Meg Henderson Wade'sConfessions of a Southern Baby-Boomer: How I Survived Crack Cocaine Addiction, the Mafia & Other Totally True Tales unfolded in an unusual fashion... Fasten your seatbelts, please! I couldn't put it down once I started reading it.
To me there often seems to still exist an established philosophy of denial...old school credos like nice people don't use drugs or 'allow' themselves to become alcoholics. This mind set has kept a lot of good and decent people from seeking or accepting help for their addiction problems which often leads to the dissolution of their hopes, dreams and lives. Though this situation has slowly improved in modern times, Ms. Wade's book is a wonderful about-face to that unfortunate tradition.
Through her honest and self-deprecating humor she manages to break through the walls and share a lot of badly needed medicine for those searching for a better way. I am thankful that she has enough personal fortitude and loving empathy towards others to channel her experiences into many positive rays of hope. She hits the nail on the head about being "High on Life" by following your heart. That is the key, period.It is her present to the world...Pass it on - Pay it forward.....

A run on sentence that must have been written in a drug induced psychosis. I get drugs make life crazy, but even an crackhead can tell a coherent story. I did like some of the little joke though.

If you don’t know Meg Henderson Wade, you will after reading Confessions of a Southern Baby-Boomer (How I Survived Crack Cocaine Addiction, the Mafia & Other Totally True Tales). This little dynamo of a southern belle holds nothing back, and like her personality this auto-biography is fast pace, something rambling, always rambunctious, and totally entertaining. She takes you from her small home town of Martinsville, Virginia (yeah it’s a big deal now) to San Francisco, to Yokosuka, Japan, and back in lightning speed. Along the way she’s an actresses, legal assistance, dating a mobster, in a bad marriage, and crack addict. She blindly and naively goes through life looking on the bright side, not realizing how dark her world really is. But that our Meg. "Confessions" has a lesson in it for everyone, and it is giving in a style that is so unique that you won’t even know that you learned it.

Meg Henderson Wade has had quite an interesting life. She tells her story with both humor and candor, and it's hard not to root for her throughout. This is a short book and an easy read. There are a few grammatical errors, certain sentences are repeated a couple times, and the book seems to bounce around a little. The first few chapters gave me the impression that I was going to be reading chronologically through a timeline, but that wasn't entirely the case. I had to try to place where certain chapters fit in on her timeline, but it didn't seriously detract from the book.

Meg Henderson Wade's "Confessions" sparkles. Like sunshine through the rain, the story of her journey gallantly divulges the many pitfalls that await an innocent growing up in the "big city" of life today. A true survivor shows how possible it is to come out on the other side of woe, battle-scarred, but not embittered. In fact, this pretty southern bell confronts the devastating consequences of her choices with unmistakable integrity and turns them on their heads. Unafraid, with a charming ability to laugh in the face of seeming defeat, the author waves a standard of victory and casts a lifeline of hope for others to catch and swim safely to shore as well.
