One woman's story of prostitution, drugs and finding the courage to escape


This moving memoir tells the story of how a young woman descended into the world of prostitution and drug abuse, yet found the strength to rebuild her life. Rhea Coombs' father is a convicted murderer and she grew up with a hippy mother who constantly moved house and lived in a succession of squats and communes before settling in Bristol. It was in Bristol that Rhea had her first introduction to drugs, pimps and prostitution. Pregnant at sixteen, she escaped to London and mixed with gangsters in seedy Soho nightclubs, eventually becoming addicted to crack and heroin and running a crack house. Rhea was forced to give up her children, but she never stopped loving them and through her strength and courage was finally able to escape for the world of drugs and prostitution, and regain custody of her children. This is her remarkable story.

Harowing and tragic but ultimately uplifting 28. Februar 2014
Von Gary Selikow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
A fascinating but at the same time harrowing page turner about life for drug addicts and prostitutes marginalized in society
Rhea Coombs in this tragic, heartbreaking, shocking but ultimately uplifting real life account tells of her life as the child of as hippy mother who longed for normality. And how her feelings of isolation led her into the world of crack and heroin addiction, a series of abusive relationships , and ultimately selling her own body to survive and score the drugs that became what seemed to be the only thing that could make life bearable for her.

She tells of her own torment and addiction, her rock bottom feelings of low self-worth, the ruthless dealing of the drug world and of the danger and suffering endured by prostitutes
Ultimately it was her love for her children and the discovery of a great strength in her soul that brought her though to completely drugs, leave the world of prostitution, reclaim her place in society . she works for a London based charity helping disadvantaged people including women involved in prostitution. In addition to have written this valuable highly recommended book that gives a glimpse into the lives of people addicted to drugs and women involved in prostitution.
She condemns the cruel and archaic laws criminilizing prostitution making the point that this only drives these women deeper underground and make it less possible for them to work away from this life. She points out that 'what is certain is that any woman who finds herself involved in prostitution out of desperate economic necessity or another has aright to be safe and protected and to have realistic exit routes out of prostitution.' she points out that 'none of us planned a career in prostitution and a variety of dire circumstances in our lives forced us to converge on the same dire spot underneath the rest of society'.

Prostitutes are human beings, often with bigger hearts than many saints and we can all learn to judge people who have been through so much less harshly and find some compassion. the answer is to ensure no women have to do this.A society is nothing if it does not put at the very heart of its policy considerations, the welfare of the vulnerable in society.
