“Before and after addiction pics – change is possible.”
My name is Brian Pennie and I experienced my first day clean on the 8th of October 2013 after 15 years of chronic heroin addiction. Instead of perceiving my addiction as a failure, I embraced a second chance at life and went to university to study the intricacies of human behaviour.
Since then, I have become a speaker, writer, PhD student, self-development coach, and university lecturer.
With a relentless belief that we are what we think, my mission is to show people that change is possible, demonstrating actionable steps through a lived experience.
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Howard Thurman
