For those who are still struggling
Don't hate yourself for someone your not, love yourself for someone your are.

A different type of rehab (in Italy)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/8404437/San-Patrignano-bakery-The-dove-of-hope.html

This rehab is free.  They don't accept money from their government or from the relatives of the addicts.  They support themselves through excellence in their craft and a few corporate donations.  And it's a 4 year committment. Not 4 weeks......but years.

To My AD:I wrote this for you
When the sun slips between the slivers of silver snow and the dramatic jar of urban landscape I Long to sit by you In a warm room toasting, reading, deftly pouring conversation into empty spaces, To make up for all the time we lost The trust we lost Love unrequited, lives we lost.

found this, thought I would share, we all wait for the addicts in our lives

I will wait…..

I will wait. I will wait for you. These are the words that taunt me. Why? Waiting. Hoping. Praying.  These are qualities that an addict like me does not possess so easily.

Looking back as far as I can remember I have waited for something. I have waited for someone or something to make everything better. If I just had this person or this thing or this place I would be whole. I would be complete. I just need to wait. Sometimes those things would come into my life and I would become happier and others times I never held the thing in my hand that I thought I was waiting for. That’s life though. Waiting. But what if the thing you waited for was life…. Someone else’s life?

That’s what I wait for. I wait for the day that you get sober. I wait for the day where the lies, the deception, the hurt stops. I wait for the day when I do not have to stay up and worry anymore. I wait for the day that what binds us together is more than love; it is a passion for life. Addiction brought us together in another way. We bonded. We nodded.  Hell we laughed but those days have been over for me for years now. I have been waiting for you. I have been waiting for the day when you decide that you want what I have and to be happy. I wait for you to live along side me again.

I wait for the day when you call and say I am done. I wait for the day when you scream for help because you give up. I wait for the day when you wave the white flag so high and quick that it cannot be mistaken for anything but a sign of defeat.

I wait. It is hard for an addict like me. I have God to help pass the time, and a bunch of other distractions  - like the Harlem Shake videos – but nothing will take away from the longest line I have ever been in… just waiting.

I will wait…..for you.

The biggest lie

At least once a day someone asks me, how are you? and I say fine.  What a lie, what I really want to say is, no, I am not fine, I am living with an addict, my future is uncertain and the pain is unbearable sometimes. I need to sell my house and often I am lonely. Business has been bad for my AH and I am pulling all the weight,  praying I don't get sick because we have no health insurance. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.... I guess it is just easier to say fine.

Detachment

I heard someone say that detachment is like a boat in the ocean.  That little boat holds out all the water in the world, but if it springs a leak, then it sinks. 

When we detach, we stay afloat.  But when we take on the addicts problems, it is like taking on water, we sink. 

I thought it was a good analogy.

Very Sad

   I took this from another forum and would like to share.

Sunday night at The Grammys Ed Sheeran will be performing his beautiful song called The A Team (heroin being a class A drug). Beautiful song and I am hoping he wins a grammy. He worked in a homeless shelter and wrote this song about a girl who stayed there and was an addict. He's bringing more awareness to addiction and hopefully inspiring understanding and compassion.
