Nic Sheff is a best-selling author, the “beautiful boy” in his dad’s best-selling book, a staff writer for The Killing and the poster child for the fact that recovery from debilitating meth addiction is possible. Nic has contributed magnificent pieces to AfterPartyChat—including this one which discussed the fact that the journalist Michael Hastings, who died in a horrifying crash, had struggled with addiction and had in fact written about Nic’s relapse. In this week’s podcast, we discussed where his addiction took him (to sex work and homelessness), how his dad’s tough love saved his life and what life “after the party” is like.
