Drop the Gun, Drop the Pills, Pick up the Phone!

May 10, 2012

DROP THE GUN. DROP THE PILLS. PICK UP THE PHONE! Over the past 10 days I have literally connected directly with four people suffering from gambling addiction who were at the brink of suicide. Thank the Lord they are all still with us and reaching out for RECOVERY! This disease that hijacks our brains and eradicates our souls also can be arrested with treatment and mutual aid groups, spiritual counsel, a friend who cares…there ARE “No wrong doors” …just enter one and RECOVER. Life is precious and the pain passes. Those in recovery from addiction are LIVING PROOF…RECOVERY is a reality for many and it can be for those who consider the ultimate choice.

    Yes, please reach out for support and talk to someone. Help and understanding are at your fingertips. If you are thinking about suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

    Hope and recovery ARE possible.

    To be a part of the solution in the state of Nevada, consider joining the Nevada Coalition for Suicide Prevention. Visit http://www.nvsuicideprevention.org.
