He captained England and Arsenal through the 90s, and was a hero to men and women all over the world. During this time, Adams developed a drink problem which would threaten his career and his family-life. After finding AA, and recovering using the 12 Step Programme, Tony has reinvented himself as the creator for addiction clinic charity ‘Sporting Chance’, ambassador for the royal charity campaign ‘Heads Together’ and is the longest serving patron of Nacoa UK.
‘When you pick up the phone, it’s not going to your boss, it’s not going to your mate. No one’s gonna laugh at you.’
