Addiction is chaotic, messy, and nothing anyone would ever wish upon themselves. The truth is that this disease can happen to anyone, in any form. Anyone can become addicted to anything. An Addict's Flight is the story of ten different types of addicts sharing their personal experiences. Included is the research behind each form of addiction, entailing causality and treatment. These stories are shared to help others, de-stigmatize, and reveal the powerful hold one's mind succumbs to when addiction strikes. For those who have known, loved, or been involved with an addict, we have learned that only an addict can make the choice to take their flight towards lasting sobriety. Trapped in their cocoon, only they can spread their wings when ready. Megan tells her personal struggles with addiction and losing her mother to the disease. In doing so, she relates to these ten stories and the forever battle addicts fight to stay clean. A beautiful butterfly exists in us all as we unravel our cocoons. It is possible to spread our wings and fly towards peace. Everyone's flight comes on their own terms. We will love and nurture the addicts in our lives, while accepting what we cannot change.
