the only drug addict that wins the battle is the person that is given the strength to die clean, regardless. I will now share briefly what we do as addicts: we will lie,cheat,and destroy everything & everybody around us and yes we will even take other peoples lives especially the ones that WE lOVE, as is
such in my case. So protect yourself if you can financially, emotionally, but most of all DO NOT LOVE an Addict so much that you would be prepared to give your LIFE to save him or her.
By the way i also have a Drug Addicted single
parent Daughter with a 3 year old grandson whom i am trying to protect at this time.I was on the streets from the age of 14. i seldom talk about my past as when i look back i cannot believe the destruction & devastation that i have left behind. It is one thing to become clean, but you must remember it is also another thing for Drug Addict to forgive themselves. You may post this if you choose.
It took a lot of courage to write this, David. Thank you from all of us ~ Cheryl
