Overdose Confirmed

Just to follow up on my last post – we have confirmation that Al OD’d. I believe it’s because he had not been using for almost five months; so when he did finally use, his body couldn’t handle it.  It was his first payday since he started working.  He got a hefty check (from his perspective), and he had worked 40 hours in three days, so he was overtired and stressed.  There you have the ingredients for a slip.  And yes, right now we’re all calling it a “slip.”  One use after five months does not a relapse make.  It all depends what happens from here.

Thanks for your support everyone!  God bless!

      Thank you, my friend. He went home from the hospital today but is still very tired. time will tell…

  2. I totally agree, there’s a big difference between a slip and a relapse. I hope that this was a powerful reminder to him of how dangerous drugs are. I’m glad he’s okay.
