I have a new book called 'What's Your Poison'. It is about drugs, alcohol and homelessness. It is fiction but the idea has come to me from real events.
So I am writing this section to talk to you about this subject. I myself have never been on drugs or alcohol. I have come close to being homeless. I do remember when we had five kids, no jobs and lived in 3 bedroom apartment with my son's bed under the stairway. We ate a lot of peanut butter and mac & cheese.
I work with a lot of people who are recovering addicts. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met. And their stories will make you cry.
I have never really met people on heroin or meth before I got this job. And I would be lying if I said this isn't scary.
I was almost killed at my job one day. Not sure what this patient was on but it is in my book. I would love to hear stories from you. Do you know anyone on drugs or alcohol or maybe you have been there yourself.
Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you.
