Loosid Sober Tip of The Day
Looking further into the stigma of shame & guilt.
The definition of stigma is a mark of shame or discredit. A STAIN
The stigma that alcoholism or addiction is something to be ashamed of prevents millions of us from getting the help we need.
This is a stigma and a stain that needs to be erased because it kills the very millions mentioned above who buy into it.
Far too many of us feel it is our fault (guilt) that we cannot handle substances, while so many others can.
What you need to know is that it is not your fault.
We cannot wish it away any more than we can wish away diabetes or high blood pressure.
It is a disease and very thankfully, it is one that is 100% treatable provided that we follow a spiritual program.
It is also critical to understand you are not alone. There are tens of millions of us who share this same common bond that we can connect with and who can show you what it takes to get to the other side.
Once we understand this, the guilt and shame often completely evaporates on the spot and we become willing to receive help.
If you are new to recovery, it is absolutely critical that you know this. If you are confused, PLEASE ask questions below as our entire community is here to help you.
If you have been in recovery for a while, take this time to share some tips to let the newcomers understand they are not alone.
There are many people in the Loosid community who need to hear what you have to say.
With Love, Loosid
