  • tell me about the opiates.

  • Um, I actually had a nice struggle with with opiates and an overdose in 2001 that I just started talking about a couple of years ago, and there are funny.

  • There are funny drug because they kind of they you don't know what's happening to you when you go down that road, and it's very hard to make clear decisions.

  • That's what I found, and I don't know what you found, but it's, you know, when I tell people I got off this stuff, it's it's it's quite an unlikely scenario to get off them.

  • And I'm just wondering how that happened to you and even advice you give to other people.

  • So to a degree, I feel like I got lucky because I have a genetic blood abnormality.

  • That process is those type of narcotics slightly differently.

  • So when they gave me morphine in the hospital when I got shot, I had never had morphine before, and I, you know, I talked about stereotypes from movies.

  • I thought they were going to stick a Sarette in my leg, and I was going to be sitting there drooling on myself and the first time they gave me a Bullis of morphine.

  • Remember it Kind of just sitting there like, Hey, when does the party start?

  • Because my leg hurts still.

  • And they gave me more than they gave me more.

  • And then they gave me more.

  • And then they pulled out a spreadsheet that had weight and the amount of morphine that I had.

  • And if they exceeded that point, basically my heart was going to stop.

  • I was gonna have a central nervous system suppression, but it really wasn't having an incredible effect of my body and then talking with my sister.

  • She was the 1st 1 who determined that we had an abnormality when it came to processing those type of drugs.

  • Ah, and others.

  • Actually, we're trying to put her out when they were taking her wisdom teeth, and they gave her the classic count backwards from 100.

  • Most people make it to 97 then they pass out and my sister sitting there 15 14 13.

  • She's making it all the way, and they get to a point where they can't even put her out.

  • So we have an abnormality.

  • That process is those types of drugs differently.

  • So for me, Percocet and Vicodin, it doesn't do very much for me.

  • I didn't get a lot of pain relief from it.

  • I think I was getting more of the pain relief from the alcohol.

  • So I didn't get I didn't get addicted to opiates per se.

  • I just got I got into a really bad habit of combining opiates and alcohol, and for me, it was more the alcohol that was providing the relief I just happened have readily accessible in front of me.

  • You know, as many purchase that is I want as many Vicodin is I want as many aqsiq Odo Nas I wanted and eventually ended up throwing him away.

  • And it wasn't it had no impact on me.

  • So I got very lucky in that respects in that respect.

  • So I'm probably not the best to talk about that particular type of addiction, right?

  • And then you decided to get in the gym and start sweating it out.

  • Yeah, it's funny.

  • I have talked about Jaakko and Tim Kennedy and, you know, Jocko said, get a mission.

  • That's what he said When you get back, get a new mission.

  • That's his advice to people that struggle with going down destructive roots.

  • And Kennedy said, train, train, eat good foods, stopped drinking and stopped telling yourself, You have a problem.

  • That's Tim's advice that you gave me last week.

  • I think so.

  • I don't know.

  • Those were their thoughts, a so far as to how to kind of move through a lot of that stuff.

  • I mean, I had combined the two again.

  • I don't I'm not a fan of broad prescriptions because the more broader your prescription, the Mawr inaccurate.

  • It's gonna be for a lot of people, you know, telling people to find a new purpose.

  • Yeah, that sounds great.

  • That's a good sound bite, but that's not easy.

  • You know, that takes a lot of soul searching.

  • It takes a lot of looking inward and determining why you want to do the things that you want to do.

  • What is it that intrinsically motivates you?

  • Um, you know Tim's advice to train?

  • Yes, that's awesome.

  • Like I said, for me, physical health and mental health are there tied.

  • I have to have both, but if you can combine training with a new mission or a new purpose, it's going to help you in those days where you have less motivation.

  • So I think you should combine the two and just saying, Hey, you know, stop telling yourself that you have a problem.

  • I don't know if that's a complete solution, either, because some people do have problems.

  • I think the more valuable lesson that could be learned or the more valuable conversation you could have with yourself.

  • You know what?

  • I'm not doing?

  • Well, I actually think I do have a problem.

  • So instead of telling myself that I don't, what I'm gonna do is dive headlong into finding some help and support them to be vocal about this and then try to find many people who is possible, who are struggling with the same things and try to help them as well.

tell me about the opiates.
