Author Martin Bødker Fritzen has just released his new book: From Drug Addict to Role Model - How I overcame 13 years of drug abuse and addiction.

From 1995 to 2009, Martin was heavily dependent on drugs. When the abuse was at its peak, he took a toxic mixture of 40-60 pills, marijuana, alcohol, amphetamines and cocaine every day. He was completely consumed by the drugs. He lied to and stole from his family. He stole from his employer and was fired on multiple occasions. He was arrested, lost everything and almost died several times.

Martin's aim was to reveal how a simple headache started his addiction and how he spent four tries at rehab and several years fighting to get his life back.

The book also includes a complete guide on the rehab treatment that worked for Martin. He also discuss how he coped with withdrawal symptoms, relapses, and how he stopped lying to and betraying the people around him.

The book has been released in the USA, Canada and United Kingdom, and can be purchased in bookstores or on Amazon with ISBN: 9788771700039 - press copies for reviews can be obtained from publisher at e-mail:

Why this book?
Martin has written this book because it was impossible to find relevant information that could motivate him when he was struggling with addiction. His message is simple, talk about taboos. He believes that when we give taboo topics (such as abuse and addiction) attention and talk about them, it becomes easier for the individual to identify with the difficult topics. This may pave the way to build hope and courage for those who want to changes their lives, or perhaps encourages you to support a neighbor, friend, or family member in need.
