An addict has very entrepreneurial traits, just waiting to hatch. If we look back on our lives, we’ve lead a life of ducking and diving and the majority of addicts have a very social personality.
A high % of gamblers that reformed went on to become successful in their chosen field. They were used to a life of high pressures, used to getting the money for their next fix.
This is true for most addicts, be it, drink, drugs, etc. I am sure there is a lot of success stories on this app, people that have stayed away from their addictions, and went on to a clean free successful life.
It would be great to hear some of them stories. Success is a great motivator, and real life stories would be a great tonic for the many that need a wee pick me up.
