Moby Discussing Addiction and Recovery

It's always encouraging to see a public figure talk openly about their struggle with addiction. Celebrities and other notable figures talking frankly and honestly about addiction, and more importantly recovery, can be a huge asset in the fight to de-stigmatize addiction. Another extremely positive effect of the public discussion on addiction is that stories of recovery can reach those who are still struggling with their disease, and give them hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. It made my day to run across this and see someone use their celebrity for the greater good!

It was a well-detailed discussion. I have a lot of interviews before with people who were addicted to alcohol and drugs, as a part of our social studies and I can say that you have just said everything I have observed about them.
