We in recovery have been part of the problem. We have both accepted and perpetuated the stigma that kept us from getting help and that has killed millions of addiction disease victims. By hiding our recovery, we have sustained the most harmful myth about addiction disease: that it is hopeless. And without the examples of recovering people, it’s easy for the public to continue thinking that victims of addiction disease are moral degenerates–and that those who recover are the morally enlightened exceptions. We are the lucky ones–the ones who got well. And it is our responsibility to change the terms of the debate, for the sake of those who still suffer.”
