  1. It’s great when good people are able to recover from drug addiction. A lot of people stereotype drug addicts as lazy, moral degenerates – but this disease can really strike anyone. I personally struggled with addiction for a long time, and the only way I’ve been able to fight cravings is with ongonig therapy. I never thought I’d be one to succumb to addiction, but I did – and the road to recovery has been long and difficult.

  3. Such a powerful story and a reminder that addiction can strike anyone. But by the same token, anyone can get clean when they put their minds to it. We need more stories like Austin’s in order to keep this in perspective.
