I recently read an article on CNN by the blogger, Betsey DeGree aka Mom Off Meth. She simply wrote about her addiction and recovery. What I actually found most interesting about the story were the comments. Because while most were supportive of this mother of four, a couple people were critical of her making headlines out of her sobriety.
However one feels about these comments, it got me thinking: how public are you about your recovery? I know people who keep their recovery close to the chest. I know others who very open about it, letting colleagues know they can come to them if they or others they know are battling addiction.
Question: Is your recovery something your colleagues or acquaintances know about? What are your thoughts making something like this known?
