Charlie Engle

EWorld renowned, ultra-marathon runner Charlie Engle shares his journey from addiction to recovery. After a decade long addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine, Charlie hit his rock bottom in a near fatal, six day binge and dramatic police arrest. As Charlie embraced sobriety, he turned to running and this became his lifeline and his salvation. In running he found a purpose, passion and faith in the process of recovery. For Charlie, running long distances parallels the recovery journey, the highs and lows, challenges and obstacles and most importantly the desire to quit. “When I am finished with that 100 mile race, my hope is that I’ll have wanted to quit two or three times but I’ll find a way not to”. Charlie’s story is an inspirational account of one man’s path to freedom from addiction, one day and one step at a time. Charlie Engle, author of Running Man, is an endurance athlete, having won or placed in some the world’s most punishing long distance footraces. In 2007, Matt D...

EIn this episode of the Addicted podcast, Ash talks with Kim Ledger, the father of renowned Australian actor, Heath Ledger. Kim shares his family’s grief at the death of their beloved son to an accidental overdose in 2008, his personal pain and work with Scriptwise to spare other families that same fate. For people who find themselves with illness, pain or injury and who, like Heath, are emotionally and physically exhausted, medication provides relief. It is an escape from the affliction. A pause, if you like. A chance to rest. Few people realise the dangers of combining these drugs with other medications and alcohol. There’s an illusion that prescription medications are safer than other substances of addiction. Kim Ledger’s message is that they aren’t. When faced with pain or illness, every human is wired to want to escape that pain, to numb that pain. Prescription medications provide a pathway to numbing, even if temporary. They are a blessing for those in serious pain, but the...
