I must say, I've been fairly impressed with the changes made by our new Liberal government and Minister of Health, Jane Philpott. While the reaction time has been lagging, some significant steps have been taken in order to help protect the health and lives of Canadians who use drugs. While we aren't even halfway through 2016, let's take a look at what's changed so far this year!
I've never been one to faithfully keep track of my sober dates. I have no idea exactly when I stopped using opiates intravenously; only an approximate guess. However when it came to quitting smoking, I shared many of my struggles through Twitter and here on my Blog, so this time around I do know my exact quit date. As of May 14th, 2016, I will officially have 6 months free of Tobacco and Nicotine. How's it going, you ask? Well... if you're looking for an honest answer, there's good days and bad.
