Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Everybody OK?
Well, it's beastly Hot in SoCal. 150,000 people have descended upon us here in San Diego for ComiCon. Haven't seen any posts here in awhile. So just thought I'd check in!

Good observation/quote

"What screws us up most in life is the picture in our heads of how we think it is supposed to be". ---unknown---

I know that is what got me this week.  It's been a rough one. And not from my addict, but from the "good" child.  My addict has "been there" for me during my mother's illness, passing, and now a few weeks later, he's still hanging in there.  That's enough to be thankful for today. 

Letting go of my daughter doesn't mean I will stop caring, it simply means I know I am powerless to make her care.
