Seeing Beyond Addiction

Picture what looking beyond addiction looks like. Most addicts cannot do that because they are too far into their addiction. Addiction is an easy way out of life’s responsibilities……A bad choice of a coping mechanism. When all else fails, rock bottom happens. The lowest point being death. What does the death of an addict look like in recovery? Total surrender. Letting go of the crutch that keeps a crippled addict totally unable to function. Is the addictive choice really a fix? The wound of addiction is too big. There is only one choice ……..To make a 12 step meeting or attend  a Celebrate Recovery meeting along with counseling. There is an epidemic out there. It’s real. I had an elderly woman say “ Don’t judge me.” She uses Oxycodone for pain management. I had to be totally honest and say “I don’t judge you.” I have no right to. But there came a point where she showed me how she got her drugs for cheap. That’s where I drew the line……I thought for this old suffering woman there has to be freedom from pain. For me I choose to live one day at a time.
