Stephanie Hazard, Recovery Coach, on Expressing Motherhood
Using substances to stifle or mask unresolved issues or problems only prevents you from becoming your authentic self.
Many people who have undergone addiction and are now in recovery are terrific agents for supporting, coaching and shedding light for those still suffering.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO UNDERGO ADDICTION, to be an effective support however.
Your one example makes a difference. Choose not to use, and communicate why.
