- Prateik Babbar says 'addiction recovery is possible'
- "If I have moved on, I would want the world to move on too," he said
- His new video talks about the life after battling drug addiction
Prateik told IANS that now that he has reformed the world should 'not stay addicted' to his past. He said: "If I have moved on, I would want the world to move on too and not stay addicted to my past. I believe acceptance and speaking can help change the face of addiction. By speaking out you can help people see the reality of addiction by educating others about the disease, and letting the world see that the stereotypes of people suffering from addiction are actually the exception rather than the rule."
"Accept that addiction is not a moral failing, and does not make you a bad person, even if you have made poor choices. Addiction recovery is possible, and acceptance is one of the first steps to get you there," Prateik added.
