They Made Me An Addict shows the journey of Moses, a young African American male who grows up fascinated by the street lifestyle and dismayed by its tragic results.. He decides to write a book about the streets from the inside out. The only way he knows how to do it is to hang with the thugs and do what they do and say what they say. He changes his church upbringing lifestyle to that of a hardcore juvenile delinquent. He says when he begins his quest, "I want the blood of the streets to flow through my veins so when I write about it, people can feel it." And we all feel it, as we follow Moses from birth to adult years through the streets of Newark, NJ and the dangerous world of drugs, cool, crime and violence, and his quest to make a difference.
