Synopsis: Sterling Braswell has two tickets to crazy town: one is his riveting personal account of meth addiction and the other is a thorough global history of the methamphetamine epidemic.. Sterling Braswell was a millionaire -- palatial ranch, stock options, and money in the bank. Then he met his high school sweetheart after not seeing her for over ten years. With their love rekindled, they were married. Life was beautiful. They had no real worries, a lovely son, and a bright future. Then she started using meth. The craziness of the next few years would leave Sterling almost completely broke financially, emotionally, and spiritually ... and nearly murdered.

About the Author: Since I was young I had what I needed, but never what I wanted. The earliest that I could get a job, around 7 or 8 years old, I did, and I mowed lawns and weeded flower beds. Anything I could do to make money. And from age 15 on I worked at actual jobs, including all throughout my time at the university. I worked long hours and continued to put off everything else in my life for my career. And though some people call it luck, I took a job for little money but lots of stock options to work for Microsoft. And I worked 100 hours per week for years. And as hard as it was, it was also challenging and fun. So many people that I worked with could only take the life for a few years, then they would burn out. And I knew that I would eventually burn out too. But I knew that an opportunity like this would only come along once in a lifetime, so I continued day after day, year after year. And by the late 90s, I had millions in stock options and assets. I would never have to work again. By then, I had slowed down some, although I still worked at a pace faster and longer than most. But I did take time to get married to my high school sweetheart via sheer chance. We could would never have the money problems that break up so many families. Although she had experienced prescription drug abuse, she was a professional, and this is not uncommon. And she seemed to get through this time OK. Then she started using meth. The craziness of the next few years, which to me seemed even more horrible than my worst nightmares, left me almost completely broke. Financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
