Ep. 18 - Addiction

Episode 18,  Jul 19, 2018, 08:13 AM

*Something very important that I forgot to include in the episode*

If someone you love is going through addiction and you don't know how to help them or how to deal with it emotionally, please look for an al-anon meeting here or a nar-anon meeting here. These meetings can help you tremendously through a hard time of being there for someone with a drug or alcohol problem and help you along the way of being there for your loved one.

In this week's episode, I talk about addiction and relapse. What an addict might go through. What the process of recovery (successful or unsuccessful) might be like. What might be a good way to be there for a loved one who might be going through addiction.

I'd love to hear your experiences and thoughts about this topic. Please email me at choisayspodcast@gmail.com with some personal stories.

Hope you enjoy this episode! KTHANKSBYE<3
