God's kids and addiction

Posted on May 31, 2011 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

I would like to say that we all are God's kids. If we have a problem with addiction we deserve to still be loved, (From a distance if need be) Damm the disease, I say, not the person. Addiction IS a disease. If someone doesn't agree that's their right. But check your facts first. It has been scientifically proven. I'm not saying let someone put others lives in jepordy when they have an addiction. I'm not naive. But they…

 Hi Bella;

  Thank you back for having said that.  He's fine.  he now has to fight the demons of different illness's that seem to have been 'covered up' by the drugs for years that all come out into the open after one becomes sober.  I don't mean to sound cold, or heartless, and I do love him, but that's the price one pays, along with others, for having made the decision to take drugs in the first place.  We all have choices. Addiction of any type does not run in this family, and lives have been not easy growing up, but far from hardship, disfunction or abuse as well.  There was no need for his decision to use, none.    Now, my eldest daughter who was always responsible, loving, smart and with an aura around her people were just drawn to ; for the last few years has decided to make the same choice.  She is spiraling downward and there is noting anyone can do, until she admits to herself and then resolves to take care of it.  I have to stand back, my love remains, my words go unheard, my heart breaks, but I must distance myself with the tough love thing, once again.   I feel there is no excuse, none and I have actually little patience with addicts for that reason.  It begins as a concious decision and in her case, knowing what happens after that decision is made, to use, I have no mercy I guess.  I love the person, I hate the drugs, which become that person, taking over rapidly in its destruction without limits except in many lives; death.   Its feeling so helpless as a parent, and a friend that gets me.  Indeed the friends and family are victims of a  persons concious decision to use.   You take care and thank you for your original post, it was beautiful.

  sorry, but I have never been know to write a two liner, lol.

 Hi Bella;

  Being a parent of one son who went through years of addiction I have been through it all, I feel.   The prayers never stopped, the fear in my body and soul that one day I would bury that young man.  I never judged him, I never ceased to love him and I understood how evil this disease was that it took complete control of his words, his heart, his life and destroyed so many paths along with friendships over the years.   Finally going on three years now, he is sober and has really come into the light of living and caring .  He is very responsible and for the first time I feel trust in him again.  That's all God's work.  No one can wash out the disease that creeps into the mind, its all done by a will by the person who has the disease.  The first step is admission, to ones own self. Then the courage to change it.  Tough love was a must with my son.  But the love never ceased.      So, I agree that no one should judge but keep perservering to help somehow if only through prayer, this saddened soul of a person on a downward spiral of turbulance.    We must go on loving them, but without being blinded nor foolish nor sheltering them from the storm of wickedness of others during their addiction.  Sometimes, it is others horrific words that brings this addict back to reality, the point of return.

   Just saying.    

I like your post.
