At age 31, presenter Cherry Healey has had a daughter and survived a year of sleepless nights. Now it’s time to get back on the roller coaster of modern life – but has she been left behind.
In episode two, Cherry sets out to discover why we have become a nation of pill-poppers. In a world where we can buy legal drugs online, how informed are the choices we make, and how much do we rely on the pills we take? Whether we are chasing a legal high or trying to cure a physical problem, are we all addicted to something these days.
She meets a range of young Brits, from thrill-seekers to self-confessed addicts, to discover why we’re all in love with the idea of the quick fix.
On the way, will Cherry be able to resist trying laughing gas and smoking salvia, and can she kick a lifetime’s habit of slimming aids?
