Today marks a year since my brother died because of a heroin overdose.
Addiction is not a fun disease. It wants you dead. And if you play around with the disease of addiction long enough, it will eventually get you.
I’m reminded today of my own struggles with addiction and that I can never drink alcohol safely again during my lifetime. If I were to, I would probably end up dead myself.
Today serves as a reminder to me just how serious drug and alcohol addiction can be to those who have it and struggle with it daily.
