Your addiction is not a sign of your weakness. It's a sign of your humanity.
If you are struggling with addiction, you have to reach out to someone. No one was meant to carry that heavy of a weight alone. You might be afraid that no one will be there to receive you, or that, like a lot of other categories in Through Adversity To The Stars, you'll be labeled with some kind of stigma. These hotlines were created for you. They exist for no other reason: they're nonprofit and run by volunteers whose only motivation is helping people surpass their obstacles and live their best life. You are so, so much more important than any stigma, and your mental and physical health is vital. It's never too late to recover.
And never think that just because you have an addiction that your life is any less valuable. You're still beyond precious, and we're so sorry if the circumstances in your life have let you forget that. If you are having any suicidal thoughts, please visit the homepage call the National Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
