ADDICTION is a Bully

It’s a different way to think of my drinking problem, but the metaphor fits.

Addiction is a common schoolyard brawler. He uses shame and isolation to break us down.┬áRecovery is how we stand our ground. It’s how we look him in the eye and say, “Never again!”

He pushed too far, together we can fight back.

I wrote a longer post explaining why Addiction is like a bully this on my alcoholism recovery blog, but I wanted to share the basic idea here for my WordPress friends.
