a place for zinesters - writers and readers
WARNING: any or all of the zines mentioned and even this discussion itself MIGHT BE TRIGGERING (related to drug/alcohol abuse/addiction/dependence, recovery, sobriety, etc.).
so someone had posted a discussion about this, but I think it got deleted because I can't seem to find it (I don't know why).
the person who posted the discussion was asking about zines that were about drug abuse and recovery (I think because they had a friend who was abusing drugs or something).
even though the old discussion seems to be gone (if it's not, please point me to it and I'll post there instead), I figured it's a good thing to talk about and that it would be nice to post suggestions for zines about drug abuse, alcohol abuse/addiction/dependence, recovery, sobriety, etc. here.
even zines about quitting smoking or chewing tobacco or quitting caffeine are welcome, too, although not as preferred.
this is not for recreational or religious or cultural drug use/experiences, stories, etc. in zines where the drug is not being abused (for example, a story about a person getting high from bong hits and then doing stuff in a zine should not be posted here - you can make a different discussion for that. this thread is for helping those with alcohol/drug problems).
so here are some I found today that talk about drug/alcohol abuse/addiction/dependence, recovery, sobriety, etc. (although I cannot personally vouch for any of them yet, I'm just going off descriptions on distros, although I did buy the second one, the Alabama Grrrl #9/Love Letters to Monsters #3 split, recently):
