The Ugly Reality of Drug Addiction – A Photo Collection

Photos like this are very hard-hitting.  I’m not sure that anybody ever sets out to become an addict, but it is the sad outcome of so many lives.  These people are somebody’s sons and daughters and sometimes they are even parents.  If only more could be done to prevent the scourge of addiction in our society.

    I am an addict and alcoholic. I have four years clean and sober since May 2013. I am 39 years old. I have been so blessed with the people my Higher Power put into my life. Every one I met at meetings contributed to me, sitting at my PC, I graduated from college finally with a BA in English Creative Writing, and viewing the excellent photos as I think “But for the Grace of God go I.” I have not an inkling of an idea why God chose me to keep breathing and not a Mom with three children. I will never know “the wisdom” to justify my seat in a meeting. Thus I go, because it is a gift–plain and simple.
