Many who suffer from addictions are faced with hard questions. Indeed, it is those tough issues that may have led them down the road to addiction to begin with. Perhaps the toughest question we all must face is, in light of our bad habits or overall neglect, are we prepared for the consequences? For the vast majority of us, changing the way we think, even on the smallest scale, may profoundly and positively change our lives. Changing the way we think may even change the lives of countless others.
For some, however, the reluctance to be introspective and address the issues we face may very well be a matter of life and death. As the world comes to grips with the “opioid epidemic”, reaching out to help others or, reaching out for the help we need may be life changing and life-saving.
