"those people"

no one ever planned or expected to become
an alky or addict.
not all had parents or siblings with substance abuse,
to see firsthand the progression of alcoholism.

the misconceptions and stereotypes, while
better understood today, still exist to some degree.

while the obvious drunks are easy to spot,
the reality is we are represented in every
segment of society.

we can be your doctor, lawyer, teacher, nurse
or plumber.

the more influence one wields, the easier it is
to conceal a drug or alcohol problem.

the general public should be aware that
we are everywhere in today's world.
before anyone rushes to judgment about
someone in recovery, remember...

we are your fathers, mothers, brothers,
sisters and sons & daughters.
