Chris Kennedy Lawford

This week I have had the privilege and pleasure to hang out with Christopher Kennedy Lawford. The NZ Drug Foundation hosted him in New Zealand where he was doing work for his role as the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador on Drug Dependence, Treatment and Care.

Hearing Chris speak multiple times for different audiences has helped me understand the road to recovery. He has been in recovery for as long as I have been alive. That is amazing.

You can listen to his interview with Kim Hill on Radio New Zealand here.

Chris is an inspiration. It is hard to sum up my feelings about his visit and spending time with him. His story made me think about life in a completely different way — he has taught me a bit about myself and how I deal with substances and stress that I wasn’t willing to admit to myself. For that I will always be in his debt.
