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)

Holidays are bittersweet
My family is in fairly good shape going into Christmas. But that can all change in an instant. So glad that I have you all to help me remember to take this journey "one day at a time".

Text to my AD So much lying comes with your drug use. So much hurt too. Your dad and I were so happy to have you back, sober. So happy, joyful, thankful, that you were with us, that you were not lying. Now, here we are, once again in the middle of your lies, having to lose you all over again. You show up sober just long enough for us to have hope, to fall in love with you all over again, to see our beautiful child. The you go back to your Beloved. And your Lies. And your Deceptions. Our lovely daughter leaves us, and we grieve. Grieve as a canyon calls out to the universe, echoes to the empty stars. Our clear-eyed Cate is gone again. Do not contact me unless you need a ride to treatment.
