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.
Heroin use is on the rise. This highly addictive narcotic has become more widely available, is cheaper than ever, and is purer in form. There are two main reasons for these changes: the federal crackdown on prescription pill abuse, and the correlating influx of heroin into the black market by drug cartels.

Most of us know about the short-term effects of alcohol on the body, but what we might not be aware of are the long term affects. Over years, alcohol can wreak havoc on the body and can affect mental health as well. Physicians urge patients to give up alcohol entirely or at the very least drink only on rare occasions.

With the recent passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, celebrity addiction is headline news again. The actor’s overdose on heroin after over 20 years of sobriety brought the focus back to fact that drugs and alcohol don’t discriminate when it comes to ruining lives. Stars from every genre have been afflicted by addiction, and unfortunately our fascination with the trials of hitting bottom and gaining recovery mean they often sort through difficulties in the public eye.
