Faces of Addiction

I've talked about a lot of different parts of my life on this blog before, but I've never, ever mentioned anything about this. This month, I celebrate 13 active years in a 12-step program for family and friends of those with a problem of alcoholism and drug addiction. The one thing that's helped me most over the years is learning about alcoholism as a disease, understanding it, and turning anger into compassion.

In Chris Arnade's photography project Faces of Addiction, he gives addicts in New York City the dignity to share their stories, hopes, and dreams. You don't need to look at every photo/read every story, but I think it's worth a click or two.
