Titles By Khalil Rafati
Khalil Rafati went to Los Angeles in the 1990s and had it all. He was working with Hollywood movie stars and legendary rock musicians, but it wasn’t long before he found his way into the dark underbelly of the City of Angels.
When he hit rock bottom — addicted to heroin and cocaine, overtaken by paranoia and psychosis, written off by his friends and family — he grabbed a shovel and kept digging. At 33, Khalil was 109 pounds, a convicted felon, high school dropout, and homeless junkie living on the infamous Skid Row in downtown L.A.
So how does someone with nothing, who feels like they deserve nothing, and who just wants to end it all turn their life around?
I Forgot to Die is an incredible true story of pain, suffering, addiction and redemption — and how one man ultimately conquered his demons and wrote himself a new life story.
You talk about it all the time.
You keep telling everyone, including yourself, how you’re going to change.
Maybe you need to finally get in the best shape of your life, get out of debt, stop cheating, get sober, quit your job and follow your purpose.
Blah, blah, blah.
Please, before we go any further, ask yourself a question:
“Do I really want to change?”
Because if all you want is your toys back, or for someone to listen to your sad story, that's not what you’re going to get here.
This book is about change. Big, giant Change with a capital “C”.
The kind of change that, once it happens—and it will happen—you are going to look in the mirror and say, “I cannot believe how amazing my life is.”
