Overcoming addiction with sailing: ‘It’s a way of life I never knew existed and better than any drug

There's nothing in addiction for me except pain and misery, sailing showed me that there’s a completely different way of life out there.”
David Mannion has spent most of his 29 years addicted to drugs. He has also served many sentences for crimes committed to feed his addiction.

He’s currently in Coolmine Lodge, where he’s part of the therapeutic community receiving treatment.
