I have written numerous articles on the parents of addicts and on the addicts themselves. Whether it is about a parent losing a drug addicted child, or about the addict’s effect on their family, I am always writing about the parents or the drug addicted individual. I have yet to tell a story, to write an article for the siblings. Which surprises me. Why? I have a younger brother and a younger sister. The effect that both my addiction and my recovery has had on them, has been profound. Yet, it isn’t a topic talked about much by me or any other addiction related site. Well it’s time.
So, here we go. This is in honor of my brother and sister, and all the brothers and sisters of every drug addict. You aren’t forgotten.
