Contest Brief

My blog offers support and encouragement to families with drug or alcohol addiction. I am looking for stories about addiction from a family member's perspective, not the addict's. Story should be deeply personal and something that will resonate with other readers. True stories are best, but since I have no possible way of knowing...the story must be believable. I prefer approximately 750 words, but I'll consider anything with quality content. The story will always go under your byline, even if used multiple times, but I will own the copyright. Story must be original, previously unpublished in any way, anywhere, in any form. Please proofread your story.

    Safwan, the website is targeted toward families with drug or alcohol addiction. I know that shopping, gambling, pornography are destructive addictions, however, I have no personal knowledge of the emotions that go with those. As time goes on, the site may be expanded to include those areas, but for now, it's directed to families with Substance Use Disorder...this is an addiction that kills. Thank you for asking.

      Dear CH, you should have mentioned that earlier. I spent some time on your contest, because you hit a sensitive cord, and I exposed a story I had hidden.

    I did award one winner, but I'm still looking for more stories...hopefully 7 - 9 more. It looks like Freelancer.com closed out the first contest after I picked a winner. I did open this contest, exactly the same as the other one, and I will continue to do so until I get all the quality stories I need. Thanks!

    Please allow me to ask if this story has to be about addiction to chemicals only? Or can it be about addiction of shopping, or gambling or watching explicit online material and so on?

      Or even addiction to online gaming or social media fan race and it's dire consequences on families?
