A Recovering Addicts Experience
I'm a Recovering Addict, Child of an Addict and Psychology Major. I write this blog in the hopes that sharing my knowledge of addiction recovery can help people achieve a happy life in recovery. I want people to know they are not alone in this fight. This common struggle will hopefully bring us together so we can find support, in which we can gain the strength and the courage to keep fighting.
I want this blog to help people understand addiction and inspire compassion within them for addicts. I hope to eliminate the discrimination and stigma of an already difficult struggle by raising awareness of the challenges addicts face, and hopefully increase people's acceptance of them. As a society, I believe we need to stop punishing addicts and increase our harm reduction efforts.
We are all different and have different ways of dealing with this common and widespread struggle. I believe sharing my experiences can give another perspective on the diversity of addiction recovery. If you want to help you can share your story on my blog or share this blog with as many people as you can. You never know who might need a little hope.
