Issue Two: Amber by Paul South


I was a member of Narcotics Anonymous for ten years, and Amber was a friend of mine who had the dual diagnosis of anorexia and addiction. This is very commonplace in recovery circles, especially among women. Finally, she got sick of it all and took her own life. Two years later, I wrote this piece.
