Addicts and Relationships.

No one wants to talk to addicts, except other addicts.

1. Get connected, socialize; talk to people who will listen.
(I'm listening, but have no one to talk to; ironic.)
2. Get up and get busy. Time slows way down when your sober.
3. Boredom is your enemy, it always wins.
4. Yes, you can get a job, try it, and no Taco Bell is not beneath you.
5. Addicts are taker's, retrain your brain to be a giver: Help others,
listen, talk to people who need help.
6. Lastly, addicts are master manipulators, they won't change
without real consequences. (Don't feed their addiction)
