Addiction & Recovery Message Board

Addiction & Recovery Board Index

An addiction is a dependency on a substance.So, a Dr. may have put someone on drugs, but if they become addicted to those drugs they have become a addict.I can tell you of many people whose life in addiction started with addiction to pain meds. Denial in addiction is believing that you are not addicted,thinking it is not that bad, thinking you can control your addiction, thinking your better because of your drug of choice,thinking you can do it alone. It is us that are ultimately responsible for our own recovery, however we need support in our disease, like anyone that suffers from a disease. It doesn't matter how you got there in the end we are all the same. We are all entitled to our own thoughts and views and I totally respect yours.
"We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanagable."
"None of us need feel shame at using help, since we all help each other. It's no more a sign of weakness to use help in recovering from my addiction than it is to use a crutch if I have a broken leg."
