Simon Fenech in conversation with Neil Bramwell
Frankston City Libraries
What would make a champion kickboxer and loving father turn to ice? A brutally honest and powerful memoir that is straight from the plot of Breaking Bad.
What would make a champion kickboxer and loving husband and father turn to ice? Simon Fenech, a successful sportsman and committed family man, tried crystal meth for the first time after a traumatic work accident. He was instantly hooked. Soon, he was dealing to support a $1000-a-day addiction.
What followed was a story straight from the plot of Breaking Bad...Simon was shot by underworld hitmen. He came within an inch of losing his life after a horrific knife attack. He was hunted by drug lords and specialist police units - at the same time. And he reached the very depths of misery and despair. But Simon's story didn't end there. He managed to transform his life in a way that will inspire anyone who's either personally felt the devastating effects of ice or seen their loved one's battle with addiction.
Breaking Good is a raw, brutally honest and harrowing story of survival. It is also proof that even the most appalling fall from grace can lead to redemption.
