Very interesting post. I have a nasty habit of only seeing my own recovery from my addiction to heroin and I can identify with others who struggle with alcoholism and other drug abuse. I forget that people can be addicted to many other things, sex, food, pornography…many different things because it’s not the symptom of our addiction (i.e. drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling) those are just symptoms, we still have behaviors, obsessions and compulsions that are the root of our disease. I really needed to hear this, thank you. Keep Writing!
