Ed Kressey

Listen in as host LaMarr D. Shields talks with author Ed Kressey about the process of rebuilding their lives after struggling with the disease of addiction. Ed describes how and why he made the turn away from addiction to seek help and share the most significant lessons learned along the way—about shame, adversity, strength, perspective, and gratitude. Ed struggled through challenges and pain. After two decades of drug addiction—including 11 devastating years of addiction to methamphetamine—Ed had thrown away his life savings, biotech career, home…even his dog. He’d spent months in jail and four years in meth psychosis. He heard disembodied voices, believed vast conspiracies targeted him and estranged himself from everyone who’d tried to help him. His book, My Addiction & Recovery, is for readers seeking a greater understanding of the possibilities for power through adversity, via a personal, poignant, triumphant story. You will be inspired by his message, which is pointed, positive, and powerful: Redemption is possible, despite the most hopeless-seeming circumstances. Never give up on a human being…kindness is never wasted. Second chances benefit the giver (society), as well as the receiver.
