For some time now we’ve enjoyed reading posts from some very brave Addiction bloggers out there in the online blogosphere. Some of the journal entries we have come across detail the struggles addicts (and their loved ones) come across so clearly that the sharers have created online pseudonyms to keep their identity anonymous. This got us thinking about sharing some of the addiction blogs we are partial to; for your journey to Sobriety. It doesn’t really matter where you are in that journey or if you’re just here to support someone else on their journey.

As many of you know, I’ve been around AA for many years and have attended many meetings. I did have a period where I stepped away, as I let personalities get in the way of principles. I still struggle with that aspect of meetings, as I allow myself to be distracted quite easily. In fact, in many meetings I have to remind myself to pay attention to the message of the speaker and not the person near me shifting in his or her seat endlessly or the giggling behind me or even the people texting and playing games on their smart phones. (I still don’t get why people do that!).

To Watch Loneliness Vanish
Almost without exception, alcoholics are tortured by loneliness. Even before our drinking got bad and people began to cut us off, nearly all of us suffered the feeling that we didn't quite belong. Either we were shy, and dared not draw near others, or we were noisy good fellows constantly craving attention and companionship, but rarely getting it. There was always that mysterious barrier we could neither surmount nor understand.

The term ‘dual diagnosis’ is used to describe people who have co-existing problems: mental illness and addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. In the past the co-existence seemed to have been overlooked and some people were treated for just one condition, repeatedly. Dual Diagnosis is complex and many people with mental illness also exhibit substance abuse problems and/or addiction issue. It is typically true the other way around.

At Pat Moore Foundation we offer Suboxone Detox and Treatment for people with an opioid dependence. Typically, most people are incapable of walking away from an opioid addiction, and they need a medically managed detox via a Suboxone Detox and Treatment. Quitting ‘cold’ has a variance success rate due to severe withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone Detox and Treatment also helps curb cravings which might lead to a full on relapse.

Alcohol and drug addiction recovery for some is strife with relapse. In fact, most recovery addicts tend to at least relapse, or ‘slip’ as some say, at least once before finding their own path to sustained and successful sobriety. Relapse is tricky, not so forth coming and obvious that you can recognize it as you’re in the middle of it. What does that mean? Well, it means that relapse starts long before you pick up that first drink or drug.

Recently, there’s been some news about a drug, Sizzurp. It’s been linked to the recent hospitalization of rapper, Lil’ Wayne this month. The rapper suffered multiple seizures on Tuesday and was rushed to Los Angeles’s Cedars Sinai Hospital, and then shortly after his release he was found unconscious on the floor of his bedroom and was rushed back to the hospital where he was in a coma. The doctors reported he had high levels of codeine in his system. He has been tweeting from his hospital room.
No one has denied his use of Sizzurp.
