[[ Read E-pub ]] Ü unSweetined É How rude Jodie Sweetin melted our hearts and made us laugh for eight years as cherub faced, goody two shoes middle child Stephanie Tanner Her ups and downs seemed not so different from our own, but than a decade after the popular television show ended, the star publicly revealed her shocking recovery from methamphetamine addiction Even then, she kept a painful secret one that could not be solved in thirty minutes with a hug, a stern talking to, or a bowl of ice cream around the family table The harrowing battle she swore she had won was really just beginning In this deeply personal, utterly raw, and ultimately inspiring memoir, Jodie comes clean about the double life she led the crippling identity crisis, the hidden anguish of juggling a regular childhood with her Hollywood life, and the vicious cycle of abuse and recovery that led to a relapse even as she wrote this book Finally, becoming a mother gave her the determination and the courage to get sober With resilience, charm, and humor, she writes candidly about taking each day at a time Hers is not a story of success or defeat, but of facing your demons, finding yourself, and telling the whole truth unSweetined The book as a whole was well written and put together nicely, however, I did have mixed feelings about Sweetin as a person It is definitely easy to understand what she was feeling and going through but she came across as whiny and it seemed that she used her story to gather pity from the world Many times she contradicts herself, for example, she said that when beginning high school she was always labelled as someone who thought she was better than others when really she would rather trade plac The book as a whole was well written and put together nicely, however, I did have mixed feelings about Sweetin as a person It is definitely easy to understand what she was feeling and going through but she came across as whiny and it seemed that she used her story to gather pity from the world Many times she contradicts herself, for example, she said that when beginning high school she was always labelled as someone who thought she was better than others when really she would rather trade places with them She goes on to say, two paragraphs later, on the second day of tryouts I looked around and decided I didn t really like these girls enough to spend this much or any time with them She obviously tried too hard in the beginning to fit in and show that she was different than her Stephanie Tanner role which is all that she was known for I can empathize with how she must have been feeling like she were going through an identity crisis She wanted to separate herself from Stephanie Tanner and just be Jodi Sweetin, but in doing so she morphed into a horrible person that cared about nothing or no one Reading through it I noticed several times that she seemed to be grasping at different reasons or excuses for her problems At one point in her book she even admits to playing the blame game , blaming other people for her addiction Many times she acted as if she had a right to everything and nobody told her no All the fun she was having was a farce, the friends, the happiness, the confidence all a load of crap Everything was drug induced She was always trying to create a happy place because she couldn t handle REAL life or the truth Doing drugs turned her into a person she liked and thought made her look cool It gave her the confidence to be the person she wanted to be and she supposedly NEEDED that She liked the power that came with it It wasn t until the very end of her book that I really felt true respect for her Reading all the accounts of her life as she wrote them made me feel a strong dislike for the person she had become but she managed to wrap it up in a way that made me want to take MOST of it back I respect the fact that writing this book had to be extremely difficult for her as she was so brutally honest about everything She really took a chance and put herself out there which is quite admirable It takes a lot of strength and courage to put oneself out there and say Hey This is me I know I m not perfect, but I am trying Here s the deal Jodie Sweetin obviously wrote very little of this book I truly feel for her ghostwriter, Jon Warech But I don t agree with his theory that throwing in wanton exclamation points and constant parentheses ed observations makes the text feellike a 29 year old cokehead wrote it They don t They re just annoying.The story was solid enough for the first 2 3, but

never be completely cured I do this for my daughter Recovery is tough Blah blah blah blah blah Shut up, Jodie, and tell meabout how you got completely shitfaced at Candace Cameron s uber religious wedding To be fair, I devoured this entire book on the plane ride to Mexico, so obviously it wasn t TOO terrible While the book was interesting, I m a little skeptical about Jodie s reason for writing it She flat out says that she s a liar throughout the book and was cracked out during her sobriety speeches that she gave to college students She also talks about how desperate she is for money That, along with the fact that she relapses about 1000 times, makes me think that maybe she wrote this for money for drugs I also thought it should have been a bitgraphic and detailed Basically the whole

people and my husband didn t like it I saw this on the new release shelf at the library and couldn t resist Don t judge me Probably like most people who picked up this book, I really wanted to hear the dirt about Jodie Sweetin s Full House days There were one or two chapters at the beginning that made me laugh with their references to certain episodes of the show, and I always enjoyed when

twins passed out drunk in a bed at Stamos bachelor pad how rude don t worry, nothing happened But beyond the occasional full House references, this book was a run of the mill addiction memoir Stephanie Tanner did a LOT OF DRUGS Wow It is disturbing to read And even though her struggle with addiction is unique to her, as a book, it didn t feel that original or interesting
