LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor,

I applaud the staff of the Pierce College Roundup for the excellent reporting concerning drugs in our society.
As a recovered nicotine addict I am fully aware of the consequences of dangerous drugs. Nicotine definitely is one of those drugs although obtained legally. I was able to recover through Nicotine Anonymous, a 12-step program I faithfully attended for many years. I currently celebrate more than 19 years nicotine-free.
I found Nicotine Anonymous after five years in Al-Anon. (Al-Anon is for family and friends of alcoholics.) After working the Al-Anon program to the best of my ability I finally realized I needed to look at my own addiction. In both programs I discovered compassionate recovering alcoholics, drug addicts and people with various problems.
Thank you again for so much valuable information.

Sincerely,
Jacqueline Callan
