Last Friday someone I knew overdosed and passed away. Wow it feels so real typing it out. It’s crazy, I saw him a few weeks ago and he was okay, yes a little all over the place but that’s expected when you’re early in recovery again. He’d been in and out of the rooms for a few years. And I know how crazy and strong addiction can be and how many die from it, but I never fully came to terms that it could happen to someone I know… or even myself if I were to relapse. So the last few days have been confusing and emotional. I haven’t really processed it yet. Addiction is so real and I can’t forget how bad it was when I was using. I’ll have a year on Wednesday and it’s scary. But I don’t want to die anymore. And being sober is the only way I’ll be able to live. I wish that he still had a chance to really get that.
