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.
For Law Week 2021, Simon Fenech will be speaking at the Geelong Gaol Museum with a story that sounds like a plot from 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.
