Inspiring: From Drug Addict to Iron Man

What a great story. 

Loved this bit:

“How hard you can go is in your head,” he says, between breaths."

You can create your own limits.”

I also like this:

“My 100-per-cent motivation is to inspire people and give them hope that they don’t have to live like that,". 

That is the beautiful thing about the human experience. We have choices. Always. 

We don't "have to" live "like that". 

The other thing I want to point out is that he started on a "soft" drug-marijuana, in Grade 8,  and things went downhill very quickly after that. 

My own experience is that pot heads are among the most angry and belligerent individuals as soon as they come off their buzz. They are not "mellow" or happy unless they are under the influence. It's a dangerous gateway drug.
