When you’re in the game, you’re in the game. And it’s dangerous.

Dai was in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction when he was called to a flat in Swansea to lend someone money. It was a set-up. As he left the building, four people were waiting for him outside the lift on the ground floor. They were looking for drugs.

For 14 minutes, they choked him, beat him, and stabbed him.

When you're in the drug game, getting stabbed is a reality. You need to accept the fact that you could get stabbed, and worse. People go missing.
