Is Jennifer Lawrence an addict?

No. We do not believe she has a substance abuse problem(s). She got her own infographic on the matter mainly because of this statement: “People have diabetes or asthma and they have to take medication for it. But as soon as you have to take medication for your mind, there’s this instant stigma.”

We totally agree! Don’t you?

My fiance was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2013,and o er the years that is absolutely correct. There is a stigma on anyone with mental illness. It’s sad because alot of people don’t give them a chance an the Doctors treat them like guinea pigs for the Epilepsy because it’s so hard to pin-point where it’s coming from. Therefore they give them medication. Sometimes if your lucky it works and sometimes it doesn’t. If you mix the wrong seizure medication with another medication such as an antidepressant then you get serotonin syndrome. And that I’ve dealt with first-hand it’s horrible the person that you want to do is not them anymore

I am both an alcoholic and a diabetic. I have had to attend serious counseling because I was molested and abused and neglected as a child.
But, I copied with my difficulties by drinking. My first drink was at 12. I had this wonderful experience. I didn’t know what an alcoholic was or that Alcoholics Anonymous existed.
10 years later I lost my best friend of 16 years.
Yes, I met him at five
I hit rock bottom with my drinking and discovered I couldn’t stop. I always thought I legitimately would if I ever needed to.
Thank God, my higher power, brought me, through a series of events to my first 12 step meeting.
Since then I have become diabetic, suffered cancer and major surgery 2 plus times.
I have suffered significantly worse experiences than during my childhood.
But by God’s grace and 12 step support I have a peaceful life despite seriously difficult circumstances.
When I was young I had heard Bowie had said “I want to live hard, die Young, and leave a good looking corpse” As a person who couldn’t see my life improving because I had horrible experiences as a child these words attributed to Bowie(incorrectly?) Were incredible.
Thankfully at 22 I had a life altering experience. I had been in a 12 step program for 3 months. I was sitting near a waterfall in the forest. And I realized my mind was Quiet!
It was always running! Why did I, why didn’t I, who will hurt me next, when is the second shoe going to hit the floor?
Just peaceful, blissful, quiet. I wasn’t terrified. I wasn’t plotting. I wasn’t paranoid.
I realized I wanted More of this peaceful person. I could possibly do positive, non-hurtful, selfish things.
I honestly hope Jennifer is not addicted to anything.
But if she does become addicted. There is a peaceful, calm, beautiful, life available.
But people be aware, your addicted friends Do Not want you to change. Change terrifies those with concrete surrounding there own feet.
