Review: Yoga Cocaine by Daralyse Lyons

This is not the type of book I would normally pick up but I loved it and wanted to see how the main character’s life wouldB081W8SBVR end up. I am happy to say that I have not had to deal with drug addiction but I still felt a deep connection with this book and the struggle of the main character to get her life together. The struggle of failure and the fight to get some semblance of normalcy and happiness.

The book is written in a way that follows the 12-step program which was such an interesting structure. The other main topic of the book was incorporating yoga into recovery. I connected with this portion of the book so much that during one of my yoga flows I cried. Releasing some of the trauma that I had stored, the same way it was described in the book.

If you know someone who is struggling this is a book that you need to read. It will give you some understanding of what they may be going through and the thoughts of self-hatred. Addiction is not a choice that people make. It is a mental health illness that needs serious and long-term help and understanding.
