Bee sting helped addict quit drugs
A Chinese man claims he overcame drug addiction by letting bees sting him every time he felt the need to get high. The Hong Kong edition of China Daily, quoting the Tianfu Morning Post, says Li, 30, had been addicted to drugs since leaving school ten years ago.
Li had entered rehabilitation programmes many times but had never managed to shake the addiction. In 1999, his girlfriend persuaded him to go live in the mountains for a while in the hope that spending time away from temptation would help.
They rented a house in Songpan County and began a new life. It was there that Li read a magazine article that touted bee stings as a cure for drug addiction.
He found some wild bees on the mountain and let them attack him whenever he felt a craving coming on.
After two years, he finally conquered his addiction. He now lives in Chengdu where he works as a beekeeper. —Ananova
