Former Packer Kicker Chester Marcol was in town last week for an appearnce on WOMT 1240 AM’s Monday night Sports Talk Show, we took some time to talk one on one with him. Chester has been very open about his struggles with drugs and suicidal thoughts since his playing days, but his familiarity with suicide went all the way back to his childhood, when his father took his own life.
Chester said that he started taking pills due to an injury.
Chester also spoke about the importance of getting proper treatment.
The former kicker said he gets asked quite a bit how his life would be different had he not gotten hurt. To that he has a simple response.
Chester has co written a book, entitled “Alive and Kicking, My Journey Through Football, Addiction, and Life”, where he dives into his struggles with great detail. The book can be purchased at a wide variety of book stores and Amazon.
