You may be too young to remember when Rob Lowe was better known for his problems with mind altering substances than his accomplishments as a leading film actor with a rapidly rising or collapsing career. Robert Downey, Jr. and he seemed in competition for the “Brightest Fading Showbiz Star.” Well, time flies when you are rapidly ageing, and Rob Lowe has been drug and alcohol free (aka Clean and Sober) for THIRTY YEARS!
Yes, Rob has been a healthy and happy human, free from the previous problems with drugs and alcohol for three decades – longer than many of the people reading this have been alive.
The recent Addiction/Recovery e-Bulletin (always free/ always fascinating) documents Rob Lowe’s exceptionally pleasant emotional response to this spectacular sobriety milestone. Rob says: “From a treatment center in Arizona to a bomb shelter in Israel, I have come to know many extraordinary people, and the fellowship of recovery has changed my life and given me gifts beyond my selfish imaginings. If you, or someone you love is struggling with any kind of addiction, there is hope! Love to you all.”
Rob is a fellow filled with more gratitude than regrets while the recent A/R e-B laments the tragic despair facing addiction or overuse in the age of Covid-19.
75,000 Americans at risk for overdose death or suicide due to Corona Despair
The growing unemployment crisis, economic downturns and stress caused by isolation and lack of a definitive end date for the pandemic could significantly increase so-called “deaths of despair” unless local, state and federal authorities take action, CNN recently reported. Full details in the most recent A/R e-B.
The Addiction/Recovery e-Bulletin not only offers a diverse spectrum of news you can use without using over it, but the advertisements validate the old radio maxim “In small markets, commercials are news.” Compared to the general population, people experiencing problems related to use of drugs and/or alcohol comprise only 3%-5%. Hence, they constitute a relatively small market. The targeted advertising within the bulletin is of value to both the advertiser and the reader as each advertisement brings information and opportunity to individuals and families either interested in or personally effected by some aspect of recreational or medical use/.overuse of mind and mood altering natural chemicals or synthetic versions of the same or all-new lab-created mood altering and mind manifesting (psychedelic) agents.
With no cost to the reader, the A/R e-B brings the vast diversity of opinions, insights, research and social impact of addiction, recovery and all the grey areas in between to the largest and most responsive and emotionally invested readership of any weekly aggregate newsletter in the United States.* To reach this amazing combination of the highly educated, vastly wealthy individuals joined with semi-socially illiterate individuals of low self esteem and an even lower level of personal achievement yet eager to invalidate that description, contact Writers in Treatment, publishers of the A/R e-B. 818 762 0461
