We get to share-in a very raw and real conversation today. If your a hockey fan like me, then you know the name Theo Fleury from his 1000+ games on the ice, or from his Olympic Gold medal win in 2002! But off the rink, his life once carried the markings of a troubled childhood, abuse and coping with emotional pain through addictive and self-destructive behaviors. Today, Theo defines himself as a victor over trauma and addiction, and a facilitator to those still trying to find their way. His best-selling books, Playing with Fire and Conversations with a Rattlesnake, encourage open sharing and provide practical tools that people seeking help can personally use. We talk about his ADHD, his childhood, his adjustment to retirement and about never quitting…Enjoy!
