Each day is an opportunity for a new start. But yet it is disguise with the mask of addiction. It is a lie and if you let it, it will rob your life and even affect your families and friends life! This is what I believe my friend Angel Face is out of my life now, I miss her even though she is an addict, I don’t hold anything against her.
But she still has to deal with her own demons on her own, all what I can do is to encourage her. I pray every day and night that she will see that this disease is a lie and for her to have this vision and strength to fight it! Depression sets in and is a force that trigger’s the addict to do more and building more of a tolerance for the substance.
This is part of the journey for addiction and needs to break this chain if they are to have any hope at all. Stress is an enemy for the addict that wants to recover. This is where love and understanding this disease from family helps. If you listen to the status que, ” all addicts are no good, addicts are thief’s, etc, etc.” will cause nothing but division and stress.
Ask yourself this, do you really want this? Think about it, your daughter out there some where not knowing what she is eating or even if she is? Who she is with? Were is she staying? and it goes on and on. Hell this is happening to me with my friend, and she is not even my daughter!
I do have the phone numbers for her family, I have talk with them on a regular basis when she was staying with me. Now she is gone I really have not talk with them since, I really don’t want to add any more worries that they have already going through. Do you think this is wrong? Well it is also respecting her privacy but where do you draw the line with that?
Any way getting off topic here a bit, each day does bring in new opportunities and lessons in this journey we all go through here called life, for both addict and love ones alike! We all need to learn an embraces each day as the blessing that God has given us, and it is up to each of us to make the best out of this day as we can. For it will never be another better time then the present! I have started this blog to share and ask for your input about this epidemic that has plagued us all one way or another.
Please comment we love to hear from you, God’s blessing towards you and yours 🙂
