These are some thoughts from a GP who has worked in mainstream general practice and addictions in the UK and abroad for many years, and has been in recovery for some time. Thanks are due to all those friends and colleagues who have contributed their thoughts, wisdom, experience, strength and hope, without which I would not still be here. You know who you are. The rest of you know who you are too.
The opinions expressed here are strictly those of the person who gave them. Take what you liked, and leave the rest. Nothing that appears here should be considered to be medical advice, and if you require such advice please consult your own doctor.
