A Support Group Helps

I follow a support  group on Facebook called "The Addict's Mom". Some of their stories inspire me.. Reading their stories good or bad helps me believe it or not. Check it out!

A POST FROM A PARENT on "The Addict's Mom" FACEBOOK:
It is a disease that is ruled by the brain. Physically ruled. The drug has taken away their choice. They are left with one choice. Use the drug or die. That is what their brain tells them every waking second of their life. That is why there is so little success in getting the addict clean.

A POST FROM A PARENT on "The Addict's MomFACEBOOK:
When I understood addiction for the disease that it was, I no longer felt angry at my son. He wasn't doing things to hurt us at all. He was sick, not bad. That doesn't mean that we let him get away with stuff, though. We don't give him money either. We just knew not to take any of it personally. Addiction - the most misunderstood disease on this planet - is hard to overcome. Some people die because they can't. Best of luck to you, this is not an easy road. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
