END THE STIGMA
I have even seen several comments stating that overdose victims should not be given Narcan anymore in order to “solve the problem.” Has our society really become so cold that so many people would rather stand by and let someone die than give them another chance at life? Since when has this sort of behavior become socially acceptable? Why are people so quick to spew hate on social media?
Let’s face it—sobriety isn’t always easy. Although it is extremely rewarding, if we are being completely honest, sometimes it can be hard. On the same note, being a parent isn’t always easy either, and although it is also extremely rewarding, sometimes being a mom can be really hard too.
I think I have lost count of how many times I have heard someone say, “I never would have guessed you had a drinking problem, you seem so nice and normal!” I’ve been sober for a little over six and a half years now so I’ve gotten used to turning down drinks.
