The stand-alone sequel to the international bestseller Eating Smoke
Former commando Chris Thrall returned from a year in Hong Kong suffering severe psychosis from crystal meth addiction. The medical profession said recovery was unlikely and recommended admitting him to a psychiatric hospital.
“There’s nothing wrong with me!”
Chris refused all intervention and his life descended into a chaotic cycle of drug use that almost killed him… until salvation came in a surprising form.
In this long-awaited follow-up to Eating Smoke, Chris tells a harrowing yet refreshing and often hilarious account of addiction and one gutsy journey to recovery.
“After the harrowing events in Eating Smoke, if you thought Chris Thrall departed Kai Tak bound for a life of cream teas and Little England ‘normality’… then you’ve likely not experienced the depravity and horror of drug addiction. In Forty Nights, Chris continues to confront his demons with his usual engaging honesty, side-splitting Royal Marine humour and storytelling at its finest.” – Phil Whelan, RTHK
