Marty Doc the effects of Gambling

Marty Doc the effects of Gambling

Marty Doc talks with me about the effects gambling has had on his life. 

He's contemplated suicide and thankfully he didn't, he went through a 12 week recovery program, and hasn't gambled for 18months. We talk about his struggles, and the realisation of the problems which lead him to take ownership of what he had done and ultimately take him where he wanted to go.

He has more appreciation for those small things and less worried about opinions of others. I think we can talk away some truths about his experience and apply them to our own lives.

Adam Smith & The Real Junk Food Project

Adam Smith & The Real Junk Food Project

Founder of the real junk food project in December 2013 with an incentive to 'feed bellies not bins'.
In 2015 he did a Tedx Talk explaining his concerns about how much food is actually wasted which has created a massive food surplus but still we have the issue of food poverty.
To give you some figures half the food produced doesn’t even make it to our tables and 1 billion people don’t have access to food.
Adam had opened a 'Pay as you feel' cafe within a week of starting the company. This has grown to have 100's of other cafes with a similar model and making use of the surplus of food.

Johnny Scanlon - Addiction & Recovery

Johnny Scanlon - Addiction & Recovery

Johnny had a choice and in 2017 he either took a bottle of vodka and lived only for a few more years or he could lift the phone and ask for help. He had gotten to an all time low, and for him, seemed he had lost everything. with a glimmer of hope he reached out for help and found great support from HURT (have Your Tomorrows) the counselling service he use there and how they were able to help him find somewhere to get his rehab and finally get sober.

Johnny gives us a brief look into his life and what it was like living with an addiction and how it almost took his life.

His message is "don't be afraid to ask for help and for any loved ones who are concerned about a family member with an addiction, should be honest  and supportive."

The person with the addiction doesn't realise they're hurting anyone else... Johnny has managed to rebuild those relationships which is his biggest accomplishment.
