Yet Another Public Servic Announcement

I'm posting these graphic pictures of overdose victims not for shock value, but rather in the hope that you will have a frank discussion with friends and family about respecting moderation, understanding limits, and knowing when to just walk away.

Indulging to the point of unconsciousness is not a good thing.

Merging with one's craving can  have dire consequences.

Being unable to just walk away when you're tempted can be tragic.

Asking for help from a higher power can be a good thing.

Inability to separate oneself from one's addictions is a bad sign.

Some problems defy description.

Finding oneself worshipping at the porcelain alter frequently is a bad omen.

Having difficulty reaching one's feet can be a warning sign.

Beware of becoming immersed in your addiction.

It's not a good idea to get "fried."

Again, indulging to the point of oblivion is dangerous.

Bad behavior will eventually be discovered.

If any of the above hit home with you as they did with me, it may be time to take positive action.

If any of the photos above were too graphic or offensive I apologize.  However, sometimes seeing ourselves as others see us can be a wake up call.

How cute is that kitty in the first picture? Oh goodness. I am a dog lover. However, kitties are precious too. I think I want one!

I do love the puppy in the food can and the puppy asleep in his dish too. They are all precious!

Thanks for sharing. I do love the comments under each one. I think I have hit the behavior stage. ;;))
