This will just be a quick one but I was just looking on an addiction message board. I like to check out other sites and see what people are doing, what kind of questions are being asked and just to read some stuff from some people that are in the same boat as myself.
I was on a particular site, which will remain nameless, I’m reading a comment that someone left about having trouble sleeping due to being really early in recovery and what is the add that takes up half the page…Advil PM!
I had went into it in more detail when I wrote my story but one of the things that I would abuse was over the counter sleep aids. I cannot be the only recovering addict that has done this. I would load up on them and then just get knocked out. Anyone?
I realize that being in early recovery I am a little more sensitive to these kinds of things. I just found it kind of shocking and a little naive for someone running an addiction website, which claims to have doctors answering questions by the way, to have a huge add for a sleep aid. It just goes to show how powerful the almighty dollar really is. Have you no souls?
