‘I could’ve drank a lot of alcohol, gambled too much, quit the gym, ate s**t food and not socialise. Be miserable. But I didn’t.’

He continued: ‘I didn’t because I used this trauma as energy for life. I surrounded myself with good people, went to the gym EVERY DAY, drank water, swam, laughed a lot and was consistent. One day at a time.

‘I can now say because of this I am the happiest and healthiest I’ve been. Health is wealth.’

Jackson went on: ‘It costs $0 to exercise, laugh, drink water and go outside. If you do this I promise you’ll be the happiest and healthiest you can be.

‘To everyone who is still messaging me and supports me every single day, It doesn’t go unnoticed and I appreciate it. Thank you’.
