In this week’s episode of The Lindsey Elmore Show, Lindsey is sitting down with Erin Khar, author of Strung Out: One Last Hit and Other Lies that Nearly Killed Me.

During their conversation, Erin shares with Lindsey her 15-year battle with drug addiction. She first began experimenting with drugs at the age of 13, and talks about why self-hatred and depression were the root cause of her drug use and destructive behavior.

She also shares the moment that immediately inspired her to stay away from drugs forever, and how therapy, journaling and open communication with her family has helped her heal from her past traumas.

Then Lindsey shares the benefits of yoga for the brain, and talks about the struggles she has personally faced that yoga has helped to heal.
