"Doherty goes on to describe run-ins with the paparazzi and his constant battles with crack and heroin.
But it is his tempestuous affair with Kate Moss that proves most interesting.
In 2005 while recording with his second band Babyshambles, Doherty is clearly besotted with the Croydon-born beauty.
He writes: 'Hold me in your arms and I want for nothing....but your sweet scent, your soft, supple body and skin and I in disorder, 'boring' you with the junky business....writing again and making love all day with your beautiful self — Lay there, back to me, defiant in your defiance. Well f*** you, I love you, and I do and I do and I do.'
Later the same year in a French hotel room, Doherty records a late night drinking session. 'Last night after festivities or rather derangement of the senses in Kate’s Cannes Hotel room... mirrors were smashed and I covered my love and the whole room in Bloody Mary.'
'Well now we’re on the flight back to London from Nice & that was the first holiday I’ve had in so long, well, since Prison really. Now the Boeing 767 glides us home through a fantasy of clouds'."
