Publisher's Summary

The Joy of Addiction is a laugh-a-minute, stranger-than-fiction, tragicomedy about a teenager who hurtles into the abyss of drug and alcohol dependency. It is a true story with an unblinking insight into the mindset of an addict and an invaluable message of recovery.

But why does a conscientious member of the 15th Hampstead Cub Scouts, with six badges of merit on his scratchy little green jersey, turn into a no-good, thieving junkie? And can he ever be free from addiction, when its primary symptom is to convince the sufferer they don't have it?

What the critics say

"Like its author, this is funny, honest and in-your-face. A great and enlightening and helpful read for anyone who thinks: 'I only drink on weekends' makes them less of an addict. I include myself in that category." — Emma Thompson

"If you only read one book this year, you should really try reading a few more books, including Wocker's brilliant addiction memoir. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wet your pants and wake up screaming. Laugh out loud funny." — Tony Parsons
