Check out How Did His Life Go So Wrong by James Tsacoyeanes as he chronicles his struggle to come to terms with his son’s life, death and finally light at the tunnel of grief after years of pain. It is a story of failed attempts to save his son Chris after countless rehab stays. During his last few years, Chris’s addiction struggles were further complicated by his insistence on selling synthetic drugs through his website. He believed he was furthering research into potentially beneficial drugs. He was willing to risk his life for this pursuit. Was he delusional as a psychiatrist said years before? Was he really doing this research as a scientific goal or was he just a drug addict selling drugs? In the end, all that mattered is he died.
