harden up? The dude is a succesfull pofessioanl fighter (not a world champ, but you'd be lying if you said he isn't a success). he punches, throws, kicks tough men for a living, and has the smae done to him.
Addiction grabs you, addiction makes you weaker than your true self, and forces you to make mistakes. then, it capitalizes on those mistakes as you rely more heavily on the crutch of your addiciton.
I quit using over a decade ago. I smoked for some time afterwords, because cigs weren't going to kill me as quickly. Eventually, i decided that they had to go, too, and I did.
I have watched as hard, smart, brilliant, beautiful people got DESTROYED by addictions to pills that their doctors gave them, and by junk they shot in alleys.
Yes, there needs to be an "aha!" moment when he gets help, and it might come after an intervention, or after getting fired by the UFC or by going to jail. BUT....those things are just the CATALYST for teh momment that it happens INSIDE him, when HE realises that he must get clean. I'm not a fan of his, but I hope with all my might that this moment comes before he loses everything.

"Karo, this road is tough, I know, but no one knows the demon as it present itself to you. You're the only one who knows it, and the only one who can beat it. There are people who will help, and I'm sure there are people in your life that WANT to. You can beat this. It will be the toughest fight of your life, but you've proven that you have a fighter's heart, now it's time to point it inward and fight a hell of a lot more than 5 rounds. Peace be with you."
