Help! I'm Addicted

A Trans Girl’s Self-Discovery and Recovery

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

My name is Rhyannon, and I'm an addict.

In 2012, Rhyannon Styles began her gender transition, and attended her first 12-Step meeting -  beginning two journeys which changed the course of her life.

Using her personal narrative as a springboard for exploring addiction, recovery and LGBTQ+ mental health, Rhyannon writes with searing honesty about the complexity of her experiences. The book spans a range of addictions including alcohol, food, sex and relationships, the internet and narcotics, and highlights the ways in which addiction and the transition process can overlap.

A first-of-its kind narrative, and a powerful account of recovery, this book offers advice, hope and support for those struggling with addiction in its many forms.

RELATED TOPICS: Health & Well-Being, Self-Help

She has written for Stylist, Sunday Times Style, i-D and Broadly and featured in Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies, To My Trans Sisters and Women of Substances.
