As an ex drug dealer, former cocaine addict and current bar manager, Angus knows how easy it is to fall into an addiction. He wants to discuss routes to addiction, paths to sobriety and delve further into the UKs clearly broken drinking culture. Guests each week will speak about their own journey, discuss more generalised ‘culture questions’ and give tips to the sober and sober curious to offer support and advice to those in need of it. - New episode every Tuesday -

Episode Date
Johnny Kay - Relapse

“What my addict brain really wants me to do is sell every possession and item I own, and go and live in a crack den for the rest of my life until I die.”

I talk sobriety with Johnny Kay, who first started his journey to sobriety over 2 years ago. Since then, he has relapsed several times.

We discuss gossipping within the sober community, relapsing and whether or not it is inevitable, and how to control and manage addict behaviour.
