Recovery is Real –  

Oct. 23, 2020 – Hunter, who was a repeat felon who stole from strangers to fund his habit, was also made homeless by his dependency on drugs and ended up living in the back of a car. But Hunter’s old gaunt appearance has now been replaced by a healthy, happy glow as he looks unrecognizable to photos of himself from the day he was admitted to rehab for the final time in February 2018 … an occasion he’s marked by proposing to his English lockdown lover, Kyra Dawson, 27, who found out only this week that she is pregnant with their first child. Hunter, said: ‘At 16 my life was spiraling out of control and I bought heroin for the first time in my life. I started stealing from my own house to fund my drug habit.‘I got kicked out of school and ended up spending two-and-a-half years of my life in jail. I got stuck on this cycle of jail, addiction, rehab and relapse. ‘It got to the point where I was so high on meth and heroin that I didn’t even know my name. I overdosed and had to go to the hospital, I was in real trouble. ‘I went straight to rehab for the sixth time on February 21 2018 and I’ve been clean ever since. Having been in active addiction for so many years I genuinely feel blessed to still be alive. ‘I witnessed people dying first hand so I feel more than lucky to be where I am now. I’m happy, healthy and have a new family with a baby on the way.
