Removing the Stigma of Addiction. For those of us in long-term recovery, it is up to us to live happy, successful lives, and be an example of what we can accomplish. We can choose to not be stigmatized by societal biases about addiction recovery.
A mid-summer addiction recovery rant. And, like most rants it runs overtime and sounds a bit crazy. I share my thoughts on new U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions and his ramping up the failed War on Drugs, the positive possibilities of the natural supplement Kratom, and how some authorities are refusing to respond to emergency overdose calls. The take away? We must look after each other, now more than ever.
Hello friends. Just taking a moment to say hi and to thank you all for following the podcast. We are mostly in Canada during the summer, and at the rural place where we stay, we have no Internet service. I have to ride my bike into the nearest little town and use the free wifi at Tim Horton’s or the library to get connected. For an addict like me, this is pure torture. I’ve traded my substance abuse for online obsession! My phone is an emergency fix, but there is limited bandwidth. I’ll be so glad when we all have unlimited high speed Internet service available everywhere. I hope your summer is going well and that you are happy, healthy and sober.
