Want to know how to change your life? Ask Brian Pennie.

From chronic heroin addict to university lecturer Brian Pennie is proof that you can change your life. In this week’s podcast episode Brian tells his story and explains how to change your life with simple mind hacks and strategies.

Brian first tried drugs when he was 14 years old. By his late teens he was addicted to heroin and living a double life. It was a way he said of dealing with his crippling anxiety.

Things got so bad that his family members unwittingly drove him to numerous drug deals. At that time his body was wasting away and he describes himself as a walking corpse.

It wasn’t until Brian was 35 years old that he decided something needed to change. He had only two choices – get better or give up.
