Hi guys, well this comment is from a purely personal viewpoint rather than a news point. I actually found out a lot more about Ben Cousins tonight than I diod last night. Having said that I could even further that by saying I learnt much more than what I did by reading all the media gravy train of bullshit over the period as they all tried to sell newspapers. Seriously, was there a time when newspaper execs cared about Ben Cousins? Honestly, I guess they are all about selling newspapers.
What I did learn tonight was Ben had a family that actually gave a fuck about him. So many addicted kids are written off by their families and that is for a number of reasons. But I think the ones that cling on and show love and support have a much better chance of connecting and thus helping their loved one.
(stay tuned tomorrow as I update and have a lot more to say about this story…Especially Bryan, his dad…a Man of granite turned to pulp over trying to deal with his beloved son.)
BEN Cousins’ father feared his son would die at the peak of his drug addiction.
The revelations follow calls from the West Australian police commissioner for Ben Cousins to name and shame his drug dealers if he is truly remorseful. The comments from Karl O’Callaghan came amid the furore over the Brownlow medallist’s controversial doco, Such Is Life.
