TRAIN OF THOUGHT
By Bob Eckstein Everyone’s a Critic
WHAT’S MORE FUN than being judgmental? As a species, we relish this activity so much that we’ve created an entire society based around large groups of opinionated people offering their input on just about everything. Take dating, for instance. If you’ve gone out lately, your date was likely chosen through an elaborate screening process on a dating site, perhaps Cupids for Cartoonists or Compromise, Already. Instead of sizing up just one person, you first judge hundreds in what amounts to a colossal beauty pageant for the unattached. Swiping left, swiping right, you scrutinize their attempts to look worldly, with their selfies at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or Machu Picchu. After you hold your own private Project Runway in front of your mirror, critically assessing your own appearance, you use an Uber to get to your date because you don’t have a car (please, don’t judge). During your ride you critique the driver’s small talk and driving skills. You make a mental note of every quick, jolting stop or missed turn, and at the end of the ride you give the trip a rating of one to five stars. Woe is the poor next passenger—after you leave only one star for the scary driving and strange smell in the car—who will have to deal with a very cranky driver. Before you can get to any of that, you need to select a movie for the evening. Oh, wait—first, you’ll need to choose the theater before you can even discuss the movie. TripAdvisor allows anyone with the slightest ax to grind to be a critic on anything, even movie theaters. “The floor was sticky. No stars.” Now we can consider the movie. Thanks to Rotten Tomatoes, you have scores of reviews to sift through and process. It will have to be a cinematic experience on par with Citizen Kane or you (and your date) will be tweeting throughout the movie how bad it is. Finding a late-night place for dinner should not be difficult. You spent four hours
that afternoon on Yelp, and you’ve narrowed it down to twelve choices. Being happy at any of them is a different story. You conduct yourself in the chosen establishment as if it is you who hands out Michelin stars. Years of watching reality shows like Top Chef have distorted your dining reality, and basically, you are now impossible to feed. The other day a waiter came over to my in-laws and asked, “Is ANYthing alright?” That’s to say nothing of the dinner conversation, as you compare your date’s every witty comment to seasoned comics on their third or fourth Netflix comedy special. Everyone’s a critic now. Can you imagine if our ancestors used TripAdvisor instead of just hopping on a ship over here? “Do we really want to try that place? It’s filled with our tired, our hungry, and our noisy.” Our founding fathers had no time for reviews. The Times didn’t pan the Donner Party (“Two thumbs down!”), telling pioneers there was nothing worth the price of admission out West.
Paul Revere didn’t ride the countryside announcing: “The risotto is runny! The risotto is runny!” Our country is overrun with critics, us. Why do we bitch and moan our whole life? Where does it get us? All the great critics, like Siskel and Ebert, Judith Crist, Joel Siegel, the two old men on the Muppets have gone to the great balcony in the sky, the tables finally reversed on them on Judgement Day. The ultimate thumbs up, thumbs down. But I guess that means even God is a bit judgy. * --- Cartoon by Danny Shanahan from Everyone’s a Critic © 2019 Bob Eckstein, published by Princeton Architectural Press.

A new, life-threatening substance, a tainted batch, or a deadly cocktail. Friends are dying all around us. No one believes it can happen to them — yet it does. Five years ago, when we were in middle school, there were five overdose deaths in a three-month period in our school communities and no one did anything in response — not the schools, the parents, or the kids. Why? The stigma. People are terrified by the threat of the opioid crisis, but even more afraid of the stigma surrounding it. A group of us started talking about these tragedies. Small conversations turned into getting together informally, which morphed into monthly meetings. We shared our sorrows and fears. But, mostly, we shared our stories. Some of us were kids experiencing the shocking deaths of schoolmates, or watching friends or siblings headed down the path of addiction. Some of us had parents in recovery, or family members in active addiction. We had one thing in common — we all knew someone afflicted by addiction or overdose and we were terrified we could be next. BLAKE AND NIKKI:
GENERATION S.O.S. was born one Saturday afternoon four years ago in a living room on the Upper East Side of New York City. A group of high school students met to talk honestly about the drug and overdose crisis, how so many of their friends were dying, and why their schools were not addressing this epidemic. These students knew drugs were ravaging their generation and they urgently needed help navigating this crisis. Society had failed them, so they turned to each other. The simple truth is teens listen to their peers. There is nothing more powerful than young adults sharing their stories and letting others know they are not alone —while educating each other about the risks of substance misuse, encouraging informed choices, and urging friends to get help if they are struggling.
While we loved our monthly discussions, we were reluctant to invite friends. What would they think? Would they assume we had a drug problem? Would they think we were uncool and had nothing better to do on a Saturday afternoon? Would they think we were the “drug police” and ostracize us from parties? What developed was purely organic — it was social and informative, but most important it was real and other kids truly wanted to join our group. We don’t preach abstinence; it’s not realistic. We preach awareness and safety while sharing healthy ways to navigate complicated and uncomfortable situations. This is so different from high school programs, which typically involve PowerPoint presentations and mind- numbing statistics. We soon attracted sober kids who took on a lead role in our discussions with their own heart-wrenching stories of going down the path of addiction. Our meetings became a safe place to come listen, learn, relate, and teach other kids about the dangers of drug use today — a safe haven
to talk openly and share their truths. The sober kids who shared their stories became role models and resources for us on how to live healthy lives. Before we knew it, our informal gatherings were regularly attracting 100+ kids and became the coolest place to be on a Saturday afternoon. We know the incredible impact Generation S.O.S. has had on our community. Kids from 12 neighboring schools are now starting Generation S.O.S. clubs in their schools. We helped launch a Miami chapter with seven schools represented so far. And we just launched a chapter in LA. Our hope is to build a movement that brings Generation S.O.S. to other communities and inner cities around the country, to finally transform how America responds to this opioid crisis. No young person should ever have to die of this illness or be left alone to pick up the pieces of the ones still struggling.
TYLER: I wondered if my mom and I would ever really know each other again. When I was in fifth grade my mother became addicted to drugs, and this incredibly unexpected part of her life’s story became part of mine, as well. For one year my mother was not herself. She lost her way, lost me, and lost almost everything that mattered to her. The news is plagued by stories of addiction, and “experts” visit schools to lecture kids on this topic, referencing statistics and complex brain functions. But NO ONE shares personal experiences. No one tells you that the person you love can’t get out of bed. They don’t talk about the rage, depression, abandonment, irresponsibility and incredible pain and sorrow the people around them go through. The experts leave out the real-life details. But I know the details, witnessing my mother’s battle with her addiction and my father’s fight to save me from it. I didn’t tell anyone about my mother’s addiction for six years. I was ashamed of what people would think of me and, worse, of my mother. If other parents knew about my mother would they let their kids play with me? Would they shun my mother? I was urged to attend a Generation S.O.S. meeting nearly four years ago — a snowy afternoon on MLK weekend. I sat quietly, still unsure why I came, wondering how this was going to help me considering I wasn’t an addict. The leader asked us to say our first name, school, grade, and why we were there. My luck — I was first. I stared at the floor as I recited the words, “ Hi, my name is Tyler, I go to Trinity, I’m in 11th grade, and I’m here because my mother is an addict.” I can’t explain it but saying it out loud for the first time felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. As the rest of the kids spoke, I was in shock. Each was either an addict or had someone in their family who suffered. These kids were my contemporaries but what I noticed was they all accepted their stories. Their lives weren’t perfect but the group helped me understand the “perfect life” does not exist. I saw so many brave souls tell their stories and I wanted to be one of them. I asked my mother if she would be willing
secrets. I was free. Afterwards, I was approached by so many kids asking if they could come to this meeting, and the school psychologist’s office had a line of kids coming to get help. They said it was the most engaging assembly they had ever seen. My mother still meets with adults who reached out to her that day. I might not be a rock star, but for one day I got to feel what it was like to be one, just by sharing my story. “A MILLION STORIES” The “S.O.S.” in Generation S.O.S. stands for “Sharing Our Stories.” Story sharing will always be at the core of our

mission because everyone, directly or indirectly, knows someone impacted by substance misuse or overdose and, as a result, everyone has a story to tell. We also know that sharing these stories — which in many cases have never been told due to the crippling stigma and shame that, sadly, surround this issue — can be incredibly cathartic, even hopeful. For many, it is the end of a painful, often private journey and the beginning of healing. Generation S.O.S. is launching an ambitious movement-building campaign called “A Million Stories.” The idea is really very simple. We want youth all around the country to create short (20-30 second) videos of their stories on their mobile phones, and then post them to Instagram @GenerationSOS. We are not looking for works of art, just authentic stories from people whose lives have been touched by this issue. As more and more teens and young adults share their stories, the movement will grow, as will the realization that they are all in this together and, with each other’s love and support, they will get through it. And Generation S.O.S. will be here to help them however we can.

to let me break her anonymity by speaking to my entire high school about what I’d been through and how I was getting help. My school offers seven assemblies a year, run by a senior about a topic important to them. I applied to be a speaker and, sure enough, I was chosen. As I told my story from the podium, I saw kids with tears streaming down their faces and in disbelief. As I finished, an entire room leapt to their feet. There was an outpouring of love. The relief and joy I felt was indescribable. I had no more
DYLAN SPEAKING AT A GENERATION S.O.S. MEETING
DYLAN: Accepting that I was an addict, at 21, was the hardest thing I ever did. I thought, “It’s impossible at such a young age!” However, when I sat down with a fellow alcoholic and recounted my journey from first drink to last, there was no question I, too, suffered from addiction. I was so ashamed to consider myself an alcoholic because of the stigma. It meant I was different, and growing up different from anyone was a “death sentence.” It didn’t fit with who I thought I was, who my parents expected me to be, how I wanted others to see me. I was angry at the world and didn’t want to admit defeat. Addiction didn’t begin with my drinking. I developed a severe eating disorder at age 15, and was taking Ambien, Xanax, and Adderall — but not as prescribed. I describe my relationship with substances (metaphorically) as important as my best friend, my boyfriend, and my parents. Imagine the person you feel safest with, happiest with, and trust to always be there for you. Now, replace that person with a substance. I didn’t choose this path, and no matter how much I loved you, the disease of alcoholism made me love the substance more. Addiction kept me isolated from help by convincing me that I always knew best. Substances robbed me of my childhood, my relationship with my family and friends, and my self-love and confidence. I made some attempts at changing, but with every failed attempt I found another addiction to hold on to, like cocaine, which only made everything worse. I didn’t have access to resources or people who could show me what being sober meant. I needed another person in whom I saw myself, who had been through what I had and come out the other side. I had to put to rest the idea that only I know what is best for me and allow other experienced individuals to guide me. Conquering addiction is not easy, it is not something you can defeat alone, but it is possible for anyone. I found Generation S.O.S. through a friend and instantly wished it existed when I was younger. It might have spared me all the pain and suffering. It’s such a welcoming community — for people with no experience with addiction, people who know someone struggling, and those of us
and is led by, young adults, focusing on preventing addiction. We don’t preach abstinence because it is unrealistic in today’s society. Instead, our young adults create awareness about the dangers of substance misuse, in order to engage and educate their peers before they are faced with difficult choices — or worse. Our members are involved in an extraordinary range of projects, including forming school clubs, creating peer support videos, producing community events, posting social media content, and even building our website. A year ago, Generation S.O.S. expanded to Miami and, in November, Los Angeles. Within five years we will be in 25+ cities across the country. We’re building a massive social media presence, creating interactive programs to be used in schools, and working with a leading producer to create concerts to grow our movement around the country.

who are recovering. I was honored when they asked me to share my story with high school students and parents because I wanted to speak to that girl struggling with an eating disorder, to parents who feel helpless because they don’t know how to help their child, or just to give anyone hope. Those amazing events that once made me feel so ashamed and disgraced now allow me to share my journey with others… and maybe help just one. BUILDING A MOVEMENT We are helping build a movement of youth who will support each other and transform how America responds to this health crisis. We focus on movement-building because there is, literally, strength in numbers. When our youth realize they are not alone as they confront challenges with substance use, they feel empowered. Within just a few years, we intend to make Generation S.O.S., and the resources we provide, known to virtually every student in the country. Generation S.O.S. is unlike any other national nonprofit organization — it serves,
FELIPE: Just days before our first Generation S.O.S. meeting in Miami a student we all knew committed suicide. Apparently, he had been struggling and life became too much for him to bear. One day he was with us, the next day he was gone. We were in shock. If this could happen to him, it could happen to any of us! A few months earlier I attended a Generation S.O.S. meeting in NYC. I went because a friend’s mom was battling addiction and he and I often talked about the devastating stigma surrounding this issue. The young speaker was amazing, sharing his story and perspectives on substance misuse and addiction. No stigma — just honestly and authentically sharing his journey. I cannot describe the look in everyone’s eyes and the feeling in my heart. I realized everyone needs to hear these stories and know the impact addiction has on the entire family, the ways it can happen, and that they are not alone. We needed to replace stigma with awareness. We needed a Generation S.O.S. chapter in Miami. We launched our first Generation S.O.S. meeting in January. Our meetings have been standing room only from the start, with students from many neighboring schools attending. We had a phenomenal speaker at our first meeting who was able to connect with the students as no adult could. His story was riveting… and relatable. The Q&A session that followed was incredibly open and honest. After the meeting, everyone felt empowered to spread the word. Several of us started Generation S.O.S. clubs in our schools, where we host informational meetings with young adult speakers who share their journeys with us. We don’t preach. No lecturing about abstinence. But the focus is definitely on preventing substance misuse, addiction, and overdose. We are also planning wider community events so we can continue to heighten awareness about the dangers of drug use and addiction amidst a larger audience. The real power of the Generation S.O.S. movement is the massive impact it has on the kids who attend the meetings. The speakers share stories about how they face the challenges of substance use or,

misuse is an adolescent-onset illness, starting during teenage years 90% of the time. Those who say it is a moral failing are not looking into the eyes of a 14-year-old boy or 16-year-old girl trying to navigate life’s challenges. At Generation S.O.S. we adamantly believe that preventing our precious children from becoming addicted is where we must focus our efforts. You can help. Research shows that one dollar spent on prevention is worth ten dollars or more spent on treatment or criminal justice solutions.

sometimes, misuse but also share coping skills they have learned as a result of their journeys. That’s what the S.O.S. stands for — Sharing Our Stories. We can easily relate when peers share their personal experiences, and quickly realize how many of our friends are going through a similar journey or know someone else on this path, sometimes a family member, even a parent. I am proud to have brought Generation S.O.S. to Miami and look forward to building a movement that every young adult wants to be part of. Our generation desperately needs this YOU CAN HELP The stigma surrounding substance misuse and overdose casts a long shadow and raises many uncomfortable questions.

Paths to Recovery
The Guest House Ocala WhyWe Seek Numbness Treatment Plan
W hen we’ve been burdened by emotional and mental pain for so long, it often becomes unbearable. Our quality of life decreases, our relationships suffer and no matter what we do, we can’t seem to move on. So we cope the best we can. For many people who feel this way, drugs and alcohol provide a brief respite from the pain. In those moments, an emptiness replaces the misery and we simply feel numb. The emptiness helps us forget and distracts us from our thoughts and feelings. It releases us from the mental anguish that haunts us and lifts the paralyzing burden that weighs on the mind, even if for just a moment.
address the pain head- on is a transformational moment, demonstrating tremendous personal growth and a desire to be whole again. When it feels better to experience the full weight of our emotions, good and bad, rather than the emptiness that drugs or alcohol offers, we know we’ve made great strides in our healing. When
We don’t know why a particular substance takes this pain away; we simply know that it does. And so we become dependent, relying on drugs or alcohol to help us cope, not realizing that we are trading old miseries for new ones. When addiction takes hold, the emptiness engulfs us and it, too, becomes unbearable. Eventually, we realize that addiction and the constant retreat into numbness aren’t sustainable. The emptiness we crave is a void that swallows all emotions without consideration or concern. Drugs and alcohol may take away our pain, but they also make us numb to the things that make life worth living, such as joy and wonder. Recovery is the process of learning to face our emotions without turning them off. It emphasizes learning how to deal with our feelings in a healthy way and grow from each painful experience we have. Recovery and sound mental health aren’t the absence of pain — it’s a part of life, after all — but represent the ability to find meaning and purpose despite it. The broad spectrum of our emotions is an important part of what makes us human, contributing to our overall experience and the development of who we are. Recognizing this and making the decision to stand our ground to
nothingness no longer appeals to us and we realize that numbing the pain isn’t the same as coping, we know we’re on a path to wholeness that can break the cycle of pain and addiction. Once we’ve reached this point, we can begin to dig deeper and gain insight into our behaviors. Exploring the source of our suffering can seem daunting, but it’s an illuminating experience that will better equip us to handle future obstacles and difficulties. We’ll learn to identify our triggers and stressors so we can better control how we respond to them. It’s a journey that will take time, but with the support of a dedicated recovery team, loving friends and family and the strength to persevere despite setbacks, we can get there. The difficult and the complex are central to our stories, but how they affect the ending is completely up to us. At The Guest House Ocala, we have personal recovery experience and provide high-quality care that emphasizes compassion, empathy and personal growth. Our levels of care include Medical Detox, Residential Treatment, Day/Night Programs, & Outpatient Programs. With over 12 years in the recovery industry, we’ve helped countless people heal from addiction and we’re here to help you too. Call 855-483-7800 for more information.
Many addictions stem from an unwillingness to feel negative emotions and there are numerous ways in which we use drugs or alcohol to cope with pain and trauma. Often, what we’re looking for is an escape — chasing a dazed indifference to the oppressive turmoil in our minds. Heartache, bitterness, grief, sorrow, shame and regret, these our daily companions that remind us how broken and low we feel. The disappointment is palpable when we reflect on how our lives have turned out.
