I examine the common saying in recovery, “whatever you do, don't pick up” and analyze why it runs so much deeper than simply telling someone not to drink or use.
Drug Addiction is a very difficult demon to tame. There are many different reasons a person gets addicted to drugs. No one ever sets out with the goal of becoming an addict.
Each addict in recovery has their own set of triggers that if left unhandled, can throw them right back into their addictions.
