In a very short space of time, Marcus Fair was paying £20-40 a day just to feel normal in the morning. Crack cocaine followed, which led to burglaries. Injecting the drugs came next. Marcus travelled around the country buying heroin to feed his addiction. He used to wear out towns, rather quickly, because of the amount of crime in which he was involved.
Marcus wasn’t aware that you could overcome your addiction to heroin and crack. He came from a town where you didn’t get clean. You had two options—you died or you became an alcoholic, or both.
Marcus describes what led to him trying to make some change—it was out of desperation and the pain. He believes that pain is a great instigator of change.
