“A DIAMOND OF DUST” will take you on a journey of how a promising medical student, aspiring to become a top surgeon, ironically became a drug addict himself using his parents’ hard-earned money which they set aside each month to pay for his fees in a top medical college.
Read how a highly educated trainee surgeon was tempted to abuse drugs as a one-time experience not realising that the experience would jeopardise his career and cause him to be an addict and with that, would bring life-changing consequences.
From being a studious and responsible son, he went into a life of an obscure and lonely youth with shattered dreams, unconcerned about his family life, shackled by the ‘chains of addiction’, forsaken by friends and forgotten by society but God had another plan and in the midst of the author’s darkest valley eternity crossed paths with him and his life was never the same.
