When I first disclosed to my parents that I was struggling with an addiction they were completely nonsupportive. Their solution was to increase how often they yelled at me, basically. All it did was increase my stress level and I engaged in addictive behaviors more and more. I ended up telling them I'd stopped, just to get the yelling to stop, and continuing in secret for years. Was your family supportive of your recovery from addiction? If they weren't, how did you handle it?
