ICE wasn’t Andy’s first drug – no that was alcohol. He started bingeing at only 14. After using cannabis and some heroin, and then stopping for a season, Andy commenced ICE use after the death of his mother – it motivated him to get out of bed…but sadly much more than that followed.

Andy candidly, but unemotionally shares his concerns about the poor use of drug policy and the utter madness of ‘ICE Smoking Rooms’. Check out the full interview here…

"I knew my actions were wrong, but I convinced my self that normal rules don't apply to me. I never thought about who I was hurting, I was only thinking about myself. I ran straight through the boundaries that someone should live by, get away with whatever I wanted to...I felt I deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me; I felt I was entitled...thanks to the money and the fame I didn't have to go far to find them. I was wrong, I was foolish, I don't play by different rules, the same boundaries that apply to everyone, apply to me, I brought this shame upon myself!"

Tiger Woods

(The words of an addict or the words of a person who didn't believe in accountability or responsibility, at least until it cost him something he couldn't afford? The new definition of the word 'addict' is now wielded as an 'easy out' pass for people who refuse to acknowledge right and wrong and refuse to be accountable - the 'immoral'! Tiger, for 'right or wrong' motives (more values language) 'hit a wall' and realised his actions were destructive to him and others around him. This 'moral' revelation is the starting point for change! Without it, he would just continue to do as he pleased and believe he was 'entitled'. Are these words echoing the same sentiments the 'decriminalising lobby' use... "I'm entitled to do what drug I want, when I want and you must not 'judge' me!" We have to stop pretending the alcohol and other drug issue is not, at least inpart, a moral issue. Those who keep pretending or worse denying this fact have another agenda - and it's a very disturbing one!)

Paradise took you out and left the bill!"
