As a young man from a loving, middle class family living in a small English village, Ben Rogers appeared to have it all ... but then he found drugs. As his life descends into chaos and despair, Ben begins to chronicle his daily struggles with the aid of a video camera. He was hopeful that one day his experiences could be used to educate others. Ben lost his battle against addiction and died when he was 34 as a result of medical withdrawal. His family decided to release the tapes in the hope that other families could benefit. The result was the highly acclaimed, award-winning SKY documentary, "Ben, Diary of a Heroin Addict," which was shown on national television 27 times and ultimately across the world. Bens mother, Anne, received hundreds of letters and messages, not only from addicts but also from families saying that the documentary helped them realise that they werent alone. The book includes writings and drawings by Ben that give a unique insight into the chaos surrounding drug addiction.
