Title:  Demons, Drugs, Decisions - What Not to Do With Your Life

Author:  Lou Cipher

Publisher:  XLibris

Demons, Drugs, Decisions is a raw and unflinching personal account of one manís 30 year battle with the Demons of Drug Addiction.

Lou Cipher (not his real name) grew up in an affluent neighborhood, surrounded by a respectable family and many of the comforts denied to less fortunate children. To all appearances, he should have been happy. He wasnít. In place of the loving father figure he needed, Lou found himself at the mercy of a cruel and abusive stepfather.

Even in early childhood, he began to rebel against the beatings and his stepfatherís iron-handed rule. The collision of wills became stronger as Lou grew older, and he turned to drugs to find escape. At first it was Marijuana and Hashish, but by the time he was in High School, Lou had used Cocaine, LSD, PCP, Mescaline, and a staggering variety of pharmaceutical drugs. By the age of 17, his drug use and escalating acts of rebellion brought him into conflict with the Law.

As his downward spiral into addiction continued, Lou went to prison no fewer than six times, ultimately spending nearly a decade of his life behind bars. But even that was not rock bottom for Lou. His methamphetamine addiction dragged him into the shadowy and violent world of the Aryan Brotherhood, and into contact with Hells Angels, the Mexican Mafia, and the very dregs of criminal society. He had so many close brushes with death that he decided to write this book under a pseudonym, because many of the violent criminals in this book are still out there, and they donít want the details of their activities made public.

Lou Cipherís story is disturbing, and frequently unpleasant. Itís also enlightening, and ó in the end ó uplifting. It may be the most powerful cautionary tale of our time.

Demons, Drugs, Decisions is a harrowing descent into the heart of darkness, and a triumphant return to the light.
