My friend relapsed and I had no idea. I had been away for like two weeks and totally sucked at keeping in touch with friends and everything. The last time I had talked to him he wasn’t in that mindset of “I need to use”. Or so I thought. In recovery the biggest thing is honesty, without it that addiction can get the best of you and for him it did. He had gotten hurt and wasn’t honest with the doctor about being an addict… He came clean to everyone that he’d been taking pills (not as prescribed) which turned into also drinking for like 2 1/2 wks. I had no idea. He has three days clean now and I’m so happy he’s back, it’s just such a sucky situation. It really is a perfect example though that if you don’t ask for help a lot of times people don’t know what’s wrong or that you even need that extra support. It’s his journey and I hope he will figure it out because he really is such a good guy.
