Foil, Q Tips, and Sandwich bags
It is interesting to me how the parent of an addict will have such a different reaction to a normal household item after experiencing addiction firsthand. These are the common objects found in every home that a parent who has never had an addiction issue in their family would not think twice about.
Household goods such as Tin Foil, Q Tips, and Sandwich bags can set off a range of emotions that are hard to explain to those parents not belonging to the “club”.
Sadly to those in the “club” these objects are far more than a method to store food or clean one’s ears.
I remember when my son was actively using how quickly these items ( along w/ spoons ) would vanish from my home. I don’t miss those days.
peace and strength
