…FEAR leads to ANGER, ANGER leads to HATE, HATE leads to SUFFERING. He was right.
The saddest part of this all is that some people, both outside and within the recovery community, would make the addict a villain not understanding just how much he is suffering inside. I’m grateful that George Lucas showed Luke Skywalker showing love and compassion towards his father and then leading him to redemption. Fear and condemnation do not help an addict, love and compassion do!
