The Fifth Vital Tour and Giveaway



The Fifth Vital 
by Mike Majlak and Riley J. Ford 
Genre: Nonfiction 


#1 AMAZON BESTSELLER! 

Mike Majlak was a seventeen-year-old from a loving, middle-class family in Milford, Connecticut, when he got caught up in the opioid epidemic that swept the nation. For close to a decade thereafter, his life was a wasteland of darkness and despair. While his peers were graduating from college, buying homes, getting married, having kids, and leading normal lives, Mike was snorting OxyContin, climbing out of cars at gunpoint, and burying his childhood friends. Unable to escape the noose of addiction, he eventually lost the trust and support of everyone who had ever loved him. Alone, with nothing but drugs to keep him company, darkness closed in, and the light inside him--the last flicker of hope--began to dim. His dreams, potential, and future were all being devoured by a relentless addiction too powerful to fight. Despair filled him as he realized he wasn't going to survive.

Somehow, he did...

HE NOT ONLY SURVIVED,

HE THRIVED.

Now he's a social media personality with millions of followers, and an entrepreneur, marketer, podcaster, YouTuber, and author who hopes to use his voice to shine a light for those whose own lights have grown dim.

The year was 2005. I had graduated high school just two years earlier. Many of my classmates from my predominantly white Connecticut town had gone off to college. Instead, I’d skipped academics and had gone straight into a different kind of existence. 

I’d had a good childhood. I’d had such a promising life. 

Now, a decade later, I braved the most dangerous streets in the country to sell drugs so I could support my own insatiable addiction.

To support this addiction, I sold narcotics to others like me to keep from getting sick…to keep away the pain.

I often wondered, “How did I get here?”

But then I pushed away this distracting self-reflection and continued down the path I’d chosen for myself.

Except…I hadn’t really chosen it. 

In many ways, it had chosen me.
