I justed wanted to drop by and let all of the families and friends of those addicted know I will be praying for you and hope you do the same for me over New Years. Many of you know that I have been on both sides of the addiction fence and neither side is pretty. This Christmas was the first time I was on the "family" side because although I was clean last year we didn't get together on Christmas. I have to say it was not fun. My Nephew,his girlfriend & my Sister are all addicted to narcotics and the beast really reared its ugly head this year. My journal gives the details but my nephew screamed, cried and had an absolute fit xmas day. He blamed it on other things but it boiled down to his wanting to leave to go get high. He had recieved $100 on xmas eve and that was the only "Thank You" and the only smile we saw from him at all. The sad thing is I know I have acted that way too. Now with New Years Eve coming I am so afraid he will end up dead or in jail. My sister is also playing with fire (well in her case its dynamite). She has OD'd twice on her Fentynyl patches and today another warning was released about how deadly they are. So, I know this story is typical of how many of your holidays went and I know New Years Eve I won't worry alone. So, I will be including all of you in my prayers and hope they all make it through New Years ok. Maybe 2008 will be the year they all find recovery! Who knows? Nobody thought 2006 was going to be my year but it was. God Bless!
