addicts never feel quite right in their own bodies. They struggle with feeling like two people. They feel feelings very deeply. They care a lot about what others think of them. They’re codependent. The drugs are a SYMPTOM of the disease of addiction, and for a while, help become a temporary escape from the disease. The drugs are NEVER the cause. It doesn’t work like that.
You are different from me. You are beautiful. I celebrate you. I respect you. I think you’re smart. I think you’re capable of anything, I think you are changing the world in beautiful ways.
