During the coming holiday season, it’s important to be mindful that family conflicts, social anxiety and the fact that you are doing more than usual, may make you more likely to turn to opioid painkillers for pain relief and to “numb out.”
Having a realistic view of your situation, what you will be doing, who you’ll be with and how available your drug of choice may be, can help you manage your circumstances.
Of course, you hope that being around friends and family will be a calming influence. However, for those addicted to drugs, this is usually not the case.
Conflicts that trigger your need for opioids will follow you wherever you go.
Perhaps this is the year you give yourself a holiday gift — the gift of sobriety and life!
