Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Friend has been using heroin for about year and half... Prior to that was history of maybe 8/10 years of crack use.  He is now on suboxone and says he is great.  But, he hired an old friend to work with him who is a known heroin user... Says he's not used in 6 months and is NOT on suboxone.....

Is this a situation about to combust? Any thoughts are appreciated... neither go to any counseling/meetings, etc. that I am aware of..

2 Years, Still Painful

I haven't been here on the site in awhile. It is 2 years on 2/4 since my Daughter died just before her 27th birthday. There is no pain like it, even a parent's death. Her whole life was not Just addiction. Grief Recovery After Substance Passing (GRASP) is a site that hosts tributes to those who have passed away in this manner. www.grasphelp.org is the address: Look for Patrizia Monari (posted Sept./2014.) to see her story. It is tragic to see how many people have gone since I posted my Daughter's. To all the newcomers, this is a very welcoming group. And to the veterans, thank you for all your support.   Best, Kim
