As a teenager, Paul Mitchell was addicted to pyrrolidone, the synthetic version of a popular anti-inflammatory drug.
The medication is also used in over-the-counter anti-anxiety medication, and in a drug used to treat anxiety.
Paul’s father, who works in the chemicals industry, was using pyrrole, too, and he was also taking it to help him sleep.
“It was just the drug of choice for me,” Paul Mitchell says.

Paul was a keen footballer and he started to use steroids, which he later said was to help improve his mental health.
“I was trying to play football again, and I had a friend, who used to use the drug, and then he had a girlfriend,” Paul recalls.
“And he got her pregnant and then the baby was born with a brain defect, which caused him to lose his hearing.
And that was the only reason I was using it. “
That’s the only thing I have ever been addicted to.
So, I started to be prescribed the drugs to try and keep my hearing, and to try to improve my mental health, which I was really struggling with at the same time.” “
So, I just couldn’t go on with my life.

Paul says his dad had an addiction to the drug for the same reason he had one: the drugs were expensive.
“The drugs cost so much, and the doctors and the hospitals would only treat people who needed it, not people who didn’t need it,” Paul explains.
“There were no options, so I used to go to the chemist and I’d go down to the pharmacy, and they would charge me about $50 to $100 a bottle.”

“You don’t get a chance to get your hands on a lot of the drugs, so you’d have to buy them from the chemist.”
He was also prescribed a lot more steroids.
Paul says the steroids made him feel “really, really tired”.
The chemicals used in pyrrology were “very strong”.
Paul says he was able to use his hearing, but the drugs made it difficult for him to breathe.
“In a few months, my hearing went into complete paralysis,” Paul says.
“When I did the steroids, I would feel like I was having a heart attack.”
Paul was so desperate for the drugs that he began taking them for his hearing to improve.
“At that time, I was 16 or 17, so it was a really bad time,” he says.
But Paul says that as soon as he stopped using them, he realised the drugs had been a huge help.
“They didn’t work, and we were getting really sick,” he recalls.
After two months, he found himself unable to walk again.
“My hearing had stopped working,” he remembers.
“Now, if I’m not able to do a few things with my hearing I just can’t even hear.
I’ve had it since.” “
Then, a month later, I did another test, and this time I had my hearing back.
I’ve had it since.”

Paul now has his hearing back, but it’s not good.
Paul had to start a treatment plan with a specialist at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Sydney, before he could get a new hearing.
“We just started a treatment programme and we’re still going on,” he explains.
Paul uses pyrolide tablets, which contain a drug called diamorphin.
He’s been using the drug since 2006.
“Diamorphine has been around for decades and it’s very effective,” he adds.
“One of the reasons it’s so effective is that it helps with the release of the endorphins.
These endorphin chemicals that are released when we’re stressed.”
“It’s been used by many people to help you get through a stressful situation.”
Paul has tried other drugs before to treat his hearing loss, including the drug benzodiazepines, which have a similar effect on the endocannabinoid system.
“Benzodiazepine-induced hearing loss is really severe,” Paul told BBC News.

What I was able in the end was to stop using steroids completely, and stop using benzodiazapines.”

Paul has also been using a drug that he calls a “synthetic amphetamine” that is more powerful than benzodibs.
“Acetaminophen is very powerful.
It’s about 100 times more powerful,” he explained.
