“For those of us that know the disease of addiction”

For those of us that know the disease of addiction, we understand the struggle that Phillip Seymour Hoffman endured, and ultimately succumbed to.

A year ago I was deep in the throes of my addiction, and with a simple gesture of compassion, my friend Aaron, while visiting, asked me ‘How are you doing?’. Within a week of that question and following conversation, I was at the The Pride Institute. This discussion likely saved my life.

While I may have not worked a ‘perfect program’ over this past year, I am in a MUCH better space now and glad that today I am sober, healthy, and alive – and plan to stay that way!

Know someone in sobriety or in active addiction and haven’t reached out to them in a while? Call them, text them, tweet them or send them a message on Facebook and simply ask them ‘How are you doing?’.

You might just save a life.
