I am continually amazed by the number of people who have had their lives touched somehow by addiction. If you know anything about me, you know that I've been in alcohol addiction recovery since 2004. My life has changed dramatically since that time. Prior to that, my life was a complete roller coaster ride, and not a very fun one. I chose to stay on the roller coaster much longer than it had to be. Why? Mostly because I was scared...scared of what I'd have to do to get sober...scared of how I'd have to learn to live sober...scared of my feelings without being numb...scared of my past. And then I reached a point where I was scared to continue drinking...scared by the fact that the alcohol wasn't strong enough to numb my pain anymore...scared that I was feeling intense feelings anyway...scared of my future if I kept drinking.
Then there is the other side of the coin. The side that misses my brother terribly because he died from his addiction, never knowing what sobriety was like, hurting his family and friends, loving him so much, but not being able to save him from himself. You see, I know what it feels like to be the addict and the family member who is hurt by a loved one's addiction. It sucks being on either side.
