663: Nadeem Akhtar, part 2: Breaking a Doof Addiction Can Be Harder Than Expected

Ep. 663

Nadeem committed to reducing his doof. He bravely shares the challenge.

Even in Norway, he's surrounded by messages to keep consuming it. Imagine any other unhealthy addictive substance---cocaine, heroin, etc---was advertised and sold everywhere. On top of extra availability, imagine it was portrayed as like food, which it isn't. Nadeem stopped drinking alcohol long ago despite its prevalence in Norwegian culture, and compares how avoiding doof was harder.

If you're struggling with getting clean from doof, you'll appreciate hearing what it's like.

He also shares more about living as a Muslim in Norway.
