Product Details

Jessica needs a fix.

Vacillating between a desire to get high and a yearning for a substance-free life, she finds herself alternating between cocaine and yoga, dependence and freedom. Will she be able to let go of her self-abuse and find sobriety one day, and one breath, at a time? An addict who once disappeared into crack dens, she now seeks solace at yoga studios. As Jessica attempts to create a path to recovery “on the mat” and in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, she grapples with one unanswerable question: “Is recovery worth it?” Yoga Cocaine traces one addict's journey from the unknown of addiction to the unknown of recovery.

"A raw, compelling, artfully crafted novel, Yoga Cocaine takes us on a deep dive into the shadowy world of addiction. This novel powerfully illuminates what's available to us when we commit ourselves to the redemptive path of recovery. Even if you've never struggled with addiction, you will be shaken, moved and inspired."
--Kezia Renée Lechner, author of Close to the Bone: An Uncommon Love Story

"Yoga Cocaine is a heartwrenching story of a woman failing at what seems like an impossible mission: getting sober. Its intense, matter-of-fact voice draws us into Jessica's world, walking us through her journey in a way that helps us to see into the mind of an addict and understand how long and hard a journey it really is."
--Selina J. Eckert, author of This Cursed Flame

"Jessica's experiences could put any fraternity guy to shame, yet you feel for her and root for her, despite her nonexistent moral compass. Through yoga, and some serious diversions, she undergoes a powerful, poignant transformation. Yoga Cocaine is an emotional roller coaster ride of despair and recovery. It's a must read for anyone who's ever dealt with addiction or loves yoga."
--Heidi Doheny Jay, author of Confessions of 400 Men

“For anyone who has known addiction and sobriety - or wondered about it - Yoga Cocaine is a powerful, painful, hopeful, inspiring and addicting story that you won't be able to put down. Pick it up now and dive in."
--Lisa Kohn, author of To the Moon And Back: A Childhood Under the Influence

  1. Jim Cox has been an advocate for authors for a long, long time–with no #bookbigotry in sight. He also publishes a great author-aid, a newsletter. Sort of a double whammy that authors can appreciate! Thank you, Jim! I do lots of #FrugalBookPromoTips and strongly recommend both his review sites and the newsletter.
