A few years back my brother found sobriety for almost a year. Today he wants to die. 
I spent my morning doing what I have done multiple times over the past 10 years. Trying to find an answer. Always looking, searching, praying I can get my brother back. But always coming up short. 
There is NO ANSWER to this epidemic. Yes there is blame. We can point fingers at drug companies and big pharm for the push of their highly addictive drug OxyContin. We can point fingers at the addicts, saying it was their choice to use. We can point fingers at the dealers. But all that does is make your finger hurt. It does nothing, it solves nothing. 
The Vietnam War had 58,000 American casualties. In 2016 there were 47,000 casualties of opiate overdoses. These are our children, our brothers, our sisters, and our mothers. 
I want my brother back. I just don't how.

  • nataliejlucero😔🙏🏼. I am so sorry. I completely understand. Stay strong ❤️
  • ashbezoskiNar-Anon is an amazing organization that helped me through my brothers relapse last year. Having a sibling who is an addict is one of the hardest, saddest and frustrating this I've ever come face to face with. Keep hope!
