Addiction and Life

I want to take a moment to acknowledge the pain and suffering of the African-America community. As a white male I have never experienced the injustices that have befallen the community. Wherever I am on my spectrum of addiction and recovery my thoughts. feelings and behaviors have led to me making unhealthy and healthy choices. I make/made those choices from a place of privilege whether implicitly or explicitly. That is certainly true since I have defined my disorder. With my awareness of my disorder and in a healthy recovery I cannot be blind to the pain and suffering of others. I know if I go back into an addictive feedback loop that I will lose that awareness.
