an old friend; heroin

I said "how are you doing and who are you with cuz I'm 'bout to take us on a trip." I'm going sight seeing, my ears are still ringing, I'm about to fall down but that wont stop me from breathing. Releasing...Feel the beat and then I'm dreaming. Wish a nigga would, you wish a nigga could, stop me from feeling this good. Damn. I open my eyes and I see the sun. I'm in the spotlight, I feel like i already won. So it's a new year, I have many are many new fears and yes some more tears. But i have many new dreams and I desire new things. Most of all to feel serene. Clean, not so much. My body's filled with toxic dust. Still I pray and have faith that I get stronger day by day. Work on happier my dear and you will see this picture clear. A world full of heartache and pain, if not for Him (the Lord) I'd be insane. Losing consciousness now, I feel euphoria as I hit the ground. What a sick thing you see, to feel so good on drugs like me. Now I feel filthy and it seems I'm all alone. So here comes my so called friend, as I say hit me once again. Now it's time to make a change, I feel the power in my veins, a new feeling called "strength." New to me so I feel anxious, lonely and hopeless in this abyss. I'm taking control over this ****, you wont control me anymore you no good rotten filthy *****. You took years from me I can't get back, all because of that Smack.

 

Sincerely,

Hannah

Interesting

I read this on another web site and wanted to share. The  IT is the addict on drugs!

IT manipulates using every weapon in its arsenal.
Fear,anger,love,kindness,sympathy. It took a long time,but one day I had an epiphany standing at the kitchen sink with my daughter.
I suddenly realized that everything she said-everything she did, was orchestrated by IT to try to get me to do what IT wanted me to do.
If one tactic wasn't working, IT moved onto the next.

Four Walls of Addiction.

   I am sourrounded by four walls of addiction...The wall behind me is a constant reminder of what addiction has done in my life...This wall has many cracks, holes, where addiction has turned my life upside...It is filled with fear, agony of withdrawal, tormenting emotional pain, and a total loss of control...Much worse , is the pain I have caused my loved ones.'..

   The wall on the left represents self destruction...While in active addiction I sought many ways to end it all...Broken bones, floods of tears, and physical sickness were not enough! Addiction took me to a dark place, where I prayed to die...I didn't understand this place of loneliness, and unspeakable torment... I just wanted relief to feel good in life...This is where addiction grabbed me...

The wall in front of me is beautiful..This wall is freshly painted with a beautiful border that reaches beyond the horizon...This wall represents honor, and a love of life ...The wall is bright with dawn, and bright from the stars in the sky...This wall protects me and my desires free from addiction...

The wall to the right has all the colorful painted tools , that keeps me free from addiction...Yes, Today I can remain positive, seek meetings to upbuild me, and know how to live life on lifes' terms Gone is the darkness that seemed to swallow me..The wall to the right represents life and today I am happy to live it...

continuing Marty's discussion-lies

I made a new post because I know that alot of people don't check back on the old ones.

Marty stated that she didn't understand people congratulating addicts who were taking suboxone, xanax etc. because they really aren't "clean".   In the insidence she was talking about the young man she was talking about was crushing and snorting his prescription drugs so that definately is abuse.  

Some of the other opinions are that there is a difference between drug dependance and drug addiction

Discussion-lies

I thought I would start a discussion about something that has been bothering me about addicts. Ok, a little backround. There is a young man who was a person that my ran in my daughter's drug circle. When she was in the strict  sober house less than a year ago he asked to go visit her and I was assured he was in recovery. My younger daughter drove him and he was nodding out and told her he takes xanex from his doctor. My AD was so upset and I messaged him that he put both my daughter's in jeopardy and stay away. Well ,the come back to me was nasty. Anyway, I hear this last April he was wasted at our Spring festival in town. My AD said he deleted her on facebook when she said he was not really clean and sober. He just celebrated his one year clean and sober. Really. My AD tells me he crushes Suboxone and take Xanex daily. My younger daughter posted without any names that she didn't like when people say they are clean and are not. She saw all the congratulations and comments from teachers etc.... Immediately he came back at her vigiously. Along with his family members. She was so upset, she stopped her facebook account.  I have this superpower that I can look at a facebook page and just by the comments and people that they are hanging with, I know the truth. Anyway, what bothers me is, how can parents and doctor's (he has a suboxone doctor and I would imagine another doctor for the Xanex)  and fellow AA/NA members not see what I see and call him out on it. And what about his sponsor. One time when my daughter was going for a celebration tag and I knew she was still smoking pot and drinking, she asked me to go. I said, why would I celebrate a lie, and believe me you do not want me there. I will not lie for you. I know it is none of my business but if this young man walked in to my house and he was high, I would look right at him and say "You are High" and I have done it to other kids. How can everyone be so blind. I just see the hard work and dedication that my AD has been doing and I guess it bothers me too.

Not hopelessly bad

?We find that we suffer from a disease, not a moral dilemma. We were critically ill, not hopelessly bad.?

Basic Text, p. 16

????=????

For many of us, Narcotics Anonymous was the answer to a personal puzzle of long standing. Why did we always feel alone, even in a crowd, we wondered? Why did we do so many crazy, self-destructive things? Why did we feel so badly about ourselves so much of the time? And how had our lives gotten so messed up? We thought we were hopelessly bad, or perhaps hopelessly insane.

Given that, it was a great relief to learn we suffered from a disease. Addiction?that was the source of our problems. A disease, we realized, could be treated. And when we treat our disease, we can begin to recover.

Today, when we see symptoms of our disease resurfacing in our lives, we need not despair. After all, it?s a treatable disease we have, not a moral dilemma. We can be grateful we can recover from the disease of addiction through the application of the Twelve Steps of NA.

????=????

Just for today: I am grateful that I have a treatable disease, not a moral dilemma. I will continue applying the treatment for the disease of addiction by practicing the NA program.

 

Palm's comments:  It is good to be reminded from time to time that we are dealing with a treatable disease and there is hope.

promises to my magical inner child

If I could I would let you hold the moon in your hand, rinse your hair with a rainbow, dry a lotus blossom with your laughter, sprinkle magic dust on your smile, draw a star burst with your hope, ask snowflakes to dance on your mittens, light your darkness with fireflies, patch the tear in your heart, with a freshly fallen leaf, be a dancing mirror of your love, invite your prince frog in for tea.

For you are the child who was meant to be

and the child who was meant to see

the love and the goodness and light.

HOPE

No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that is our real disaster.
