In an interview with The Big Issue, Isaacs talks about his “decade-long love affair with drugs”.
"I've always had an addictive personality and by the age of 16, I'd already passed through drink and was getting started on a decades-long love affair with drugs," Isaacs told The Big Issue. He continued, "Every action was filtered through a burning need I had for being as far from a conscious, thinking, feeling person as possible. No message would get through for nearly 20 years."
At the age of 12, Jason Isaac got drunk for the first time at a party and though he woke up with a head wound, headache, and covered in vomit the next morning, he wanted to do it again. This lead to an addiction that went on for 20 years.
