Guy Shares Pics Before And 745 Days After Quitting Drugs And The Transformation Is Incredible

A week ago, Reddit user not-irene posted before-and-after pics of a guy who managed to turn his life around after quitting drugs and it blew up with 95.8k upvotes. The author of the post said that “the guy who pulled himself together deserves all the recognition.”

It appears that the guy in the photos is Travis, who has been battling drug addiction and celebrated being sober from opiates and benzodiazepines for over two years with a post on Twitter. After learning about his story going viral, he later joined the discussion on Reddit to share more about his journey.

“Hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Stayed in rehab for over a year and a half because I couldn’t trust myself.”

Inspiring stories like this show that no matter how difficult and challenging it might be to get your life back, it’s possible and more than worth it. These drastic before-and-after images speak louder than words, and if they can help at least one person in desperate need of motivation and support—keep them coming!

Bored Panda has previously compiled lists that show how people have changed after quitting drugs—check them out here and here.

This is so wonderful! I'm only on day 45 but already feeling so much healthier both mentally and physically! It's never, never too late to back your life. If you need help, there is no shame in reaching out to friends, family, or even strangers online! :)

183 days now! wasn't really wired bad but fell off the wagon for 6 months last year, after over 8 years clean from Opiates. Just goes to show that you can NEVER let your guard down and you're NEVER fully over anything, those little monsters are always waiting to come out, it's a life long battle to keep them inside. Keep up the hard work everyone who's in this battle!
