US Surgeon General Report is HERE!!!!
This is a historical event. The Surgeon General of the United State of America has taken notice of the growing problem of #addiction for lots things, drugs, alcohol, sex, opiates, heroin to name a few. I also thought it was my moral failure. That some how I could will myself to different behavior. The cravings where raw, strong and relentless. So I indulged, for many years, waiting for the day that it would catch up to me. I am a person in long term #recovery, which means to me that I have not used Drugs or Alcohol since September 24, 2014. Welcome to the new world!!! Thank you Dr. Murthy for your commitment you made for use earlier this year. Here is the report:
