Gianna's insight:

   Do you know a drug addict? Have you read a book about one? Well I have his names Nic Sheff he was drunk for the first time at age 11! That’s insane I know. In the book Tweak he talks about his struggle threw life of getting involved in probably the worst drugs ever. Threw all the withdrawals and rehab.

      Personally I loved this book it really taught me more about life and drugs. I realized that everyone is different and has a life with struggle, especially Nic. I think that everyone who does drugs or has a friend should read this book and find help, not only is it a good book it taught me some life lessons. Anyone can change his or her life around no matter what happens to you or what you end up doing. Nic Sheff inspires me even though he has done all those drugs he has come back and made his life better.

HELP!

HELP! | Tweak | Scoop.it
Gianna's insight:

 This is an image of a help button. I choose this because even though threw out the book "tweak" Nic doesn’t show that he needs help you can tell he does. He goes threw allot of struggles in his lifetime, and few people put effort in to helping him. Nic needs a lot of help and still does because even doing one little bit of any type of drug he goes back to his old self. Rehab is what is helping him get threw this entire struggle, it took him quite some time to go every time to rehab but he eventually realized and went to rehab.

Drugs Inc. 102 - Meth (National Geographic)

Gianna's insight:

  This documentary is about how Meth can be made and how harmful it is. They say it is taking over the world. A drug dealer by the name Juan Carlos talks in here talking about it.

   I chose this video for being in common with the book "Tweak" by Nic Sheff because he did meth in the book; he was very addicted to it. He relied on meth to keep him going all day everyday. He would snort it, smoke it, and shoot it in him. This drug is very dangerous and Nic has taken too much at times but luckily he lived. This video really helps me understand what it is so now I know what Nic was talking about in the story. Everyone who has done Meth has gotten addicted and has a struggle to get off of it, just like Nic. This documentary is very helpful to understand "Tweak" and understand what this world's coming to because of drugs. It’s sad to know most people rely on drugs and other illegal things.

Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy | Tweak | Scoop.it
What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family?What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted every moment of ...
Gianna's insight:

Nic Sheffs dad talking about his point of view of Nic’s situation and being addicted too different types of drugs. David Sheff thinks he raised his son wrong and he feels terrible. He explains what he and his other family went threw to try and help Nic, how hard it was to handle all of it. 

     "Tweak" is very similar to "Beautiful boy" for many reasons. One main reason is Nic is the writer of Tweak and his father David wrote Beautiful boy, they are both about how Nic was addicted to some drugs threw out his life. They are two different stories and two different points of views there struggles and cop skills with this. They both want the best for Nic and eventually he does get better and he becomes sober and changes his life around. 

      The difference between these two books is there point of views. They have very different point of views and problems in these books. David had a very hard time going threw this without guilt of raising his child bad. Nics dad David really try’s to help Nic in the beginning but after awhile he kicked him out of the house so Nic wouldn’t influence the other siblings. Even though David felt awful about it he still deep down wanted to help, but he just couldn’t. The book "Tweak" Nics point of view was extremely different he thought it was nothing, he didn’t really care that his dad wasn’t supportive he thought he could do anything by himself. Also Nick really didn’t want help or he didn’t show it.

Florida Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehabilitation | Unity Recovery Center

Florida Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehabilitation | Unity Recovery Center | Tweak | Scoop.it
Unity Recovery Center seeks to provide a multi-faceted and personal alternative to standard drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs.
Gianna's insight:

This website is for people with addiction, its a rehab living home. This place really helps them on this website it shows you all the programs they have to help different addictions. They also explain how they help the people they show them alternatives other then drugs. For instance they have a gym for them to workout, they have a daily meditation and goal setting activity, and daily 12 step meetings. The rehab center has a lot of things for these patients. This center doesn’t make them feel like they are different they treat them all the same and show them life is better without drugs, that there’s more to life then drugs. This is similar to when Nic went to rehab they helped him showed him there’s more to life then drugs, the only problem was the rehab center Nic went to wasn’t so strict and released him way to early. Nic had a very bad addiction and needed to stay in there for years not months in my opinion.
