Hi jwill welcome to this site. It’s definitely hard writing the first post so I give your props for making this first step. It’s going to be along journey but it’s really worth it in the long run to rid yourself from a destructive addiction. Getting honest with people in your life is by far the hardest part. I struggled with it to. Its only natural to fear that the connection to those people can be severed do to our addiction. However us addicts are great at making up assumptions and thinking we no how others will react. You’ll be suprised how understanding people can be if you truly show an effort to want to better yourself. My family didn’t judge me at all. If anything they understood that I was in that much pain internally that I went to a place that dark. Some people may react irrationally for a bit but that’s not your problem. Your goal is to get yourself better and that’s it.
