I have been asked..... WHAT QUALIFIES YOU TO SPEAK ABOUT ADDICTION? I GOT 34 YEARS EXPERIENCE THATS WHAT QUALIFIES ME. If you have 5 years your qualified to speak about addiction. 3 years... 1 year... If a family member struggled with addiction and it affected your life, YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO SPEAK ABOUT ADDICTION... DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU WHAT YOU CAN OR CANNOT SAY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH ADDICTION!!! It’s your experience, your story, your struggles, your losses, your pain, your feelings, your emotions, your VICTORY!!! The best education anyone can ever receive is on the job training. BE LOUD ABOUT YOUR PAST. EMBRACE WHO YOU HAVE BECOME The trials, situations and circumstances we navigate in our lifetime is what develops our character and strengthens our spirit. THERE IS NO SHAME IN YOUR GAME!!! BREAK THE STIGMA... #recoveroutloud and be #recoverystrong...
