Abdul Rahim Qadl (centre) grimaces in a haze after smoking a hit of opium resin under Pul-e Sukhta bridge, Kabul. He recounts the tale of how he first got addicted. During the Taliban era (1996-2001) he fled to Iran with his family, aged 14, so as to escape the extremely severe restrictions on citizen freedoms enforced by the regime. Shunned by Iranian society as ill-educated refugees they took to the streets, crime and whatever menial jobs were available. An older street friend convinced Abdul to try his first hit of heroin aged 16, and since then he has been unable to stop (he's 29 now). Eventually, his family rejected him for using their earnings on drugs and moved away to Tehran without leaving means for communication. In 2003, he decided to return to Kabul, and has since continued a lifestyle of crime and drugs, unable to find permanent work or an effective recovery program. A strong, outspoken man he nonetheless suffers from severe self-esteem problems, blaming much of the misery and pain in his life on his inability to escape the addiction cycle.

US Marine Corps Veteran Jabari Jones standing by the door of his mother’s house where he grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jones is 31-years-old and left the Marine Corps in May of 2005. He served two tours in Iraq as a Corporal and was a landing support specialist.  “When I got out of the army I was suffering from PTSD, and my family told me to get help. The problem with the VA is that they make you wait. I didn’t want to take medication and it took time before I got counseling. When I finally got counseling I started getting better.” Today Jabari tries to meditate regularly and is more aware of what triggers his PTSD. Hot days remind him of Iraq and on those days he tells his co-workers that he is feeling “uncomfortable” and he says that they respect that. Malin Fezehai
