The book will be accompanied with a video installation, where you meet the people who recovered from addiction and answered Vivian’s questions. You hear important quotes from their conversations. Quotes that break down the stigma around addiction.

The book comes with an essay by writer Ralf Mohren, known from his novel Tonic. In the past Ralf struggled with an alcohol addiction.

This project is a personal story with a universal mission: to show the human being behind addiction. To show it’s only a thin line between being addicted and not.
