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!
I am praying for him and your family, Here is a hug from far away
Thank you, my friend. He went home from the hospital today but is still very tired. time will tell…
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.
