that this a disease. We are up against a powerful disease that we cannot fight alone. Something comes over us and BOOM, we relapse. I was a heroin addict for many years and I still struggle sometimes but I will never do drugs again. Now I am dealing with my daughter's demons and I must constantly tell myself that it is out of of my control. As an ex addict I know all about the urges and consequences. It took me 20 years to get clean...20 years I will never get back. But I know I don't have to do that anymore. The horror I felt when I discovered my daughter's using was and is awful. I told her ( she is 19) that she had to start going to meetings or leave. She went to her first meeting last night and came home happy. But that doesn't mean squat. She has a long way to go and will be battling this crap forever. I am trying to be hopeful.
