Today's Unashamed Alcoholic guest is Theo Fleury. Theo is a former NHL hockey player, having played for the Calgary Flames, Colorado Avalanche, New York Rangers, and Chicago Blackhawks and he won the Stanley Cup in 1989 with the Flames. Throughout his playing career, Theo battled drug and alcohol addiction, which ultimately led to the end of his hockey playing in 2003.
Theo details his childhood trauma, addictions and ultimate recovery in his book Playing with Fire. He is now committed to helping others with similar struggles and shares his story in the hopes that it can help someone else.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Theo.
