More insight into causes.

What is needed is more insight into ‘why’. And the ownership of the pain that it causes to others around the addict. Is there some narcissism ? Just a few questions I have. Be good to hear from people who have lived with addicts and how they cope and if they do.

Just brilliant!

What a fantastic podcast. So open, honest and revealing. Thank you both for sharing so much and opening up this still quite hidden but desperate world of addiction with such a light touch. Good luck in the future.
