    Book details

Hungry Tigers is a sometimes-tragic, often-humorous, but always-forthright depiction of the author's years of addiction and the recovery that saved his life. From experimentation with drugs in the late sixties to a series of electric shock treatments in a psych ward in the early seventies, the author openly relates the fears, anxieties and depression that led him there. Finding no relief through accepted medical means, he embarked on a lengthy journey of alcohol and drug abuse, culminating in an addiction to heroin that shattered any lingering illusions of a functional existence. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as this seemingly hopeless addict finds sobriety at a time when some who are heartbreakingly close to him find only devastation.Gary Swoboda was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and continues to reside in the area with his wife, Judy. He's been involved with treatment programs in hospitals and prisons for a number of years, sharing his experience and hope regarding recovery from addiction. This is his first book.
