About the Book

Chasing the Dragon Out is an honest no-holds barred biography. Author Jix Sze shares about his delinquent teenage years – his drug addiction, the illegal activities he participated in and the life he lived as a heroin addict. His accounts of events, experiences and harrowing moments also offer a glimpse of the activities, happenings and culture in 1970s Singapore. The account of his life after addiction focuses on the transformation that brought about purpose and empowerment. The concluding part of the book centres on his current passion in chasing a different rush in life.

“Jix overcame his deep reluctance to write about his personal struggles
with gangs, drugs and prison; and he has written a frank account of the
darkness and tragedy that comes with drug abuse. He points us to ponder
about the resilience and grace that shore up a man’s journey to recovery;
a recovery that is sobering as well as inspiring.”
—Dr Tan Lai Yong
Director, Outreach and Community Engagement,
National University Singapore
