The Clean Conversations: If you had everything, would you take it for granted?

The Clean Conversations are our series of conversations exploring addiction and the ways it impacts our lives as young adults. The Clean Conversations are presented in partnership with Juno Dawson’s new book, “Clean”.

Award-winning author Juno Dawson has released a new book called ‘Clean’. The book follows Lexi, a spoiled socialite who has hit rock bottom. After almost overdosing, her brother stages an intervention and takes her to a rehab clinic for troubled young people.

Growing up in a wealthy home, Lexi had everything she ever wanted and took it for granted. However, after her overdose, as she goes through her detox, she starts to open up and is able to re-evaluate the path she’s on. Stripped of her status, she is now free to laugh, dance, share and feel – and make true friends.

On one hand, ‘Clean’ tells the story of having to face the hard-hitting truth of being addicted to drugs, but it also tells a story of being grateful and realising everything you have.

On her radio show, Meagan asked the question: If you had everything you could ever ask for would you be appreciative for it, or do you think you would take it for granted? Here’s how some listeners replied...

The Clean Conversations: How do you cope with addictions in your life?

The Clean Conversations are our series of conversations exploring addiction and the ways it impacts our lives as young adults. The Clean Conversations are presented in partnership with Juno Dawson’s new book, “Clean”.

Award-winning author Juno Dawson has released a new book called 'Clean'. The book follows Lexi, a spoiled socialite who has hit rock bottom. After almost overdosing, her brother stages an intervention and takes her to a rehab clinic for troubled young people.

In the book, Lexi is addicted to drugs – but, addiction in any form is very common. For example, 50% of young people feel they are addicted to their mobile devices. Mobile phone addiction has been studied and is on the rise, with a new studio showing that addiction to phones and the internet is harming our minds – literally

In fact, France has declared its tech-addicted teens to be a matter of public health and is trying to limit their access to mobile phones and social networks. Draft legislation last month has proposed that French children under the age of 16 will need their parents permission to open a social media account.

The Clean Conversations: Is addiction something that impacts your life?

The Clean Conversations are our series of conversations exploring addiction and the ways it impacts our lives as young adults. The Clean Conversations are presented in partnership with Juno Dawson’s new book, “Clean”.

Award-winning author Juno Dawson has released a new book called 'Clean'. The book follows Lexi, a spoiled socialite who has hit rock bottom. After almost overdosing, her brother stages an intervention and takes her to a rehab clinic for troubled young people.

In the book, Lexi is addicted to drugs – but, addiction in any form is very common and sometimes it is easy to forget the ways that it impacts your life. Whether it’s the use of drugs or even social media, it’s very rare to find somebody that isn’t addicted to something... even if for only a short period of time.

Looking at drugs (which is Lexi’s addiction), the likelihood of ever taken drugs was 11% for 11 year olds and increased to 37% for 15 year olds last year. This is a dangerous start. But, for balance, 50% of young people feel they are addicted to their mobile phones too, so addiction is clearly something that impacts all of us.

In 'Clean', when Lexi comes to terms with her addictions, only then does she start to feel free and can she start making proper relationships.

On his radio show, James Gilmore asked the question: Whether it’s an addiction to social media, or something else, how does addiction impact your life and do you feel in control of your addiction? Here’s how some listeners replied…
