About the Book

Addiction is a disease that affects many lives, and it’s something that is still being studied. But while there is no cure, there is hope—a hope for people who suffer with addiction. Some people may find the help they need, but many others may not.

It’s in My Genes is a true story of a young girl who grew up watching the struggle of her own mother fighting alcoholism—only to wind up herself in a devastating battle against addiction at a young age. Hopeless on getting help or having a chance at a better life, she found herself having to face the heartbreak that she caused her family. But through the many tears and self-harming thoughts, she clawed her way out of something many people cannot. And with the right help and support, Jasmine turned her life around—just in time to pursue one of her greatest passions in life, and to rekindle the strongest bond anyone could have—family.

It’s in My Genes is a story of hope, and it is an inspiration to anyone who suffers from addiction—a chance to see that getting better is possible. But admitting that you need help is the first step. You must want it before you get it.
