I'm so happy he chose to share and be unbelievable honest. What a powerful moment.
I tell people I have 3 1/2 years but I've had shady moments too😔 And this is the first time I've admitted to it. Thank you for not making me feel as alone. You are braver than me and I'm not even in the spotlight. Just posting this with my face and first name attached to it in a world where nobody even knows me is scary. Thank you so fucking much for sharing this, Dax.
Opiates in pill form were my poison and yes, the withdrawal is unimaginable. The brain tells the body it's dying even though it's not. So saying it feels like death would be 100% accurate. As of now, the fear of ever going through that again is far greater than my desire to want to go back to forever chasing a high I can't catch or even keep up with. Let's just hope that fear doesn't start to dwindle over time.
So much love
Dax, I admire your honesty and humility tremendously. As a child of addicts and at certain points an enabler who has had to learn how to love without being so this was so enlightening. I wish more people had your courage. Thank you for your honesty and generosity. I’ve never been a bigger fan!
I couldn't wanna meet you more now. Your very honest and I'm proud of you. Stay strong, and you got this!

What incredible generosity to your listeners. Share some with yourself.
Bravest podcast I've heard. Thanks, Dax. Much respect.
Super proud of your courage and humility. You didn’t owe this to any one but yourself and your nearest and dearest. What an admirable thing to share your trials and transgressions with your audience. I hope it gives you the strength you need to continue your sobriety and the inspiration some of your listeners may need. So glad you have the support around you to hold you up when you need it.
