Australians who've had 'issues' with alcohol and drugs and have beaten their problems are encouraged to inspire others by submitting their stories to a major new project, Positive Stories. The principal advisory body to government, the Australian National Council on Drugs, is coordinating the initiative. See: http://www.ancd.org.au/positivestories The site is designed to inspire people to realise they can beat their problems. It's also designed to encourage people to realise that in many parts of Australia, help is available for people battling with their problems.
