Each and every one of us knows someone who struggles daily with addiction. But what do we do? Do we give them support or do we walk on? We don't look in the mirror. For if we did, we would find an addict looking back at ourselves. Maybe continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it. Maybe we spend too much time on Facebook , than in front of someone we love. Maybe we spend too much money at the bar, but we "don't have a problem." Maybe it's just a matter of wanting to sit in front of the TV so we don't have to face our life because it sucks so bad.
