What is Guest Blogging?

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. Either way you’re welcome.

If you take a step back and think about it. There was something that each of these men and women were missing in the more traditional methods of therapy and so they latched on to taking their journal entries online to a whole community of people that were feeling the same thing and looking for no judgment. Guinevere of Guinevere Gets Sober was kind enough to kick our guest blogging series off with her 1st post. We’ve got more upcoming posts from recovering addicts and supportive family members of struggling addicts. Our hope is that you’ll find these upcoming posts helpful while learning about new online “safe places” to go to for help.

If you’re interested in learning more about upcoming posts in the works or how you yourself can become a guest blogger for Pat Moore Foundation then please email our Coordinator here.

Trust

Many years ago I had a family member taking narcotics from me. Even now, I find it difficult to trust him. If anything goes missing, I find the thought almost always goes toward him. I have struggled with this for many years. I want so desperately to trust him and I want to with all my heart. But trust is something that is earned back from those that you have done wrong. I willing quit taking any medications at all just so that I could remove the ability to blame that individual. I suffer daily with severe pain. But to me, the pain is worth more than blaming my family member every time something happens in this line.

Blame for missing narcotics

My sister-in-law is missing some vicodine & syrup, she is blamming both my husband & I. We have taken an over the counter test & it showed that we didn't take them. We are also willing to take a blood test but no one is willing to listen & trust us. We both are on a suboxine program & have for 3 years. At what point are people willing to put the past in the past and see that we've done a ton of changing and we're not who we used to be? Please, someone respond to this I'm desperate for some help.

Missing Narcotics

Thank you for sharing your story regarding missing narcotics and asking how long it takes for people to begin trusting the addict again.

Unfortunately, it is never a cut and dry answer. Trust builds over time, and in some cases people may not be able to trust you ever again. I, Recovery Rob, can speak from personal experience on that. Even after 18 years of being clean and sober, I have a 'friend' who doesn't trust me as far as she can throw me. My addition, ME, did a number on her and I can honestly say I can't blame her. It's disappointing at best, as I strive to always live an honest life with high integrity.

I no longer put my focus on her.

Your sister-in-law may begin to trust again, but that is an individual choice on her part. In the meantime, consider seeing a doctor about coming off of Suboxone, keep going to meetings and live a good life.

Recovery Rob
