The inspiring story of Jack's journey from drug and alcohol addictions that nearly killed him, to his remarkable recovery.
By the time Jack was fifteen he was addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs and hanging out with rock stars in LA.
In '21 Years Gone' Jack writes with brutal frankness about his descent into addiction and the low point he reached when Sharon was diagnosed with cancer. Scared that his mum might die, Jack retreated further into his alcoholic shell, hating who he was, hating what he did. Every night he would get into bed and pray for God to take his life. When Sharon realised what was happening she told Jack he had to go to rehab – and slowly he turned his life around. Discovering a passion for extreme sports, he went from overweight and unfit to the lean young man he is today.
By turns funny, disarmingly honest and moving, '21 Years Gone' is the amazing story of a young man who has confronted his demons and defeated them.
