Drugs is not a subject many like to talk about, so for two-time world champ Tom Carroll to come clean about his addiction to methamphetamine, it might just be one of the bravest moments of his life – even more so than his legendary snap at the 1991 Pipeline Masters.
In an interview with Australia’s 60 Minutes, Tom speaks about his addiction, describing it as “a powerful life force inside trying to kill me.”
Although Tom admitted to using drugs from as early as 18 years-old, it wasn’t until 2002 that he became addicted to methamphetamine, and things took a downward spiral.
Tom has since taken steps to get his life back on track, and this interview is another of those on the winding road to full recovery.
