3 thoughts on “A Life Of Addiction – A very personal recount”

  1. Your story is chilling. I am person who has experienced the effects of many family members who struggle with addiction(s) and addictive tendencies. Some have sought treatment, some have died and some have become well without assistance. All encountered shame and guilt along the way. Obviously no one wants to slip into addiction and there is always a root cause which must be examined in order to heal. What is your view on genetics and addiction? In your opinion is there a generational tendency?

    1. I am in the process of understanding if that has been a factor, and to what degree. My parents have passed away now making that a little harder to track, however, my sister maybe able to shed some light on this. I find that lifestyle choices are “learned” there a part of our social make up as apposed to simple genetic ties (mom has blonde hair daughter has blonde hair). If you’ve watched your parents consume alcohol from a young age, the likely hood of you drinking would be considerably higher., than someone that never “learned” that behaviour. Best of wishes to you, and thank you so much for the comment. They really make my day!!! – Jeff Dibble

  2. I think you are very courageous in sharing your journey. I know reading about how others have worked through their addiction and who are willing to tell their story, inspires and encourages those still struggling. Well done.
