An addict’s journey:
We drink or use to self-medicate because we are disconnected from ourselves, others, and God.
We self-destruct, tearing our lives apart and ravaging our physical and mental health. By drinking, using, and engaging in high-risk, impulsive behavior that damages others and us.
And, if we are fortunate, a support system, a 12 Step program, and God’s grace help us to find sustained abstinence and a disciplined approach to self discovery and spiritual growth. (JM)
