The Dark Side of the Moon - An Addict's Story

Television (Full Length) – 2001

It’s only fun for a bit and then it becomes a chain that drags you down so badly eventually that it will just take everything from your life. Everything. And the worst of those things that it takes is your passion for living. There’s no passion left. Just drugs.
– Tim, the subject of the doco
You don’t think about the disaster your life is becoming as long as you’re stoned — but the more often you’re stoned, the bigger disaster your life becomes.
– Tim, the subject of the doco
Neither is there the usual shock-horror approach to the subject. It's a documentary about a disease. As Tim says, would you say to somebody with clinical depression or diabetes, "Get over it?"
– Michele Hewitson (New Zealand Herald, June 27th, 2001)
