We have a daughter who has been abusing drugs for a long time. The only time that she is sober is when she is in a lockdown treatment facility. Since she is over 18, she can leave treatment at any time even against medical advice. I feel for you and your family since addiction hurts all.


I feel for you. That's gotta be absolutely heart wrenching. There is hope, I've had a close relative who suffered through it too, and she ran until her body couldn't take it anymore, then she recovered. There's always hope.

Addiction is seductive, regardless of how unglamorous it looks.

If I could easily find the Blaze of Glory meme, I’d definitely post it here.

But in a world that has numerous other substances that are better in terms of a high and don’t have the horrible hangovers


Hangovers eventually stop almost altogether for alcoholics. Headaches completely cease. They just need to get a morning drink to make withdrawals (shakes/tremors and sweats) go away. Alcohol is also more easily accessible and cheaper than most drugs when you get to high level addictions (talking Burnett’s vodka level alcoholism v. cleaning out the vacuum cleaner to hope there’s some meth in there addiction).

There is also a genetic component for the reason people choose alcohol v. narcotics as their drug of choice. Many alcoholics are fourth or fifth generation alcoholics. There are not many fourth or fifth generation addicts.

I have a dear friend from HS who became a meth addict and spent 3 years in prison.

He was from a good family and eventually cleaned up, started his own construction business and is married with 3 kids now. They live in a nice, upper middle class neighborhood.

Alcohol was amazing for me. Slowed me down, relaxed me, helped me sleep, allowed me to be someone I was afraid to be otherwise. Allowed me to not feel guilt, etc.


Same for me. Luckily I'm a pretty strong minded and willed person that decided I didn't like the feeling of losing my memory anymore. Got drunk one night,kind of showed my ass, got away for a day and decided I was done. This was Sept of 19. Have had 2 beers socially since and still feel the same way. If rather he sober

Confess to smoking pot though. That habit came before alcohol and doesn't bother my everyday life at all. Improves it really.

Recovering heroin junkie. Three back surgeries and got addicted to opioids and when the pills became too expensive I started buying heroin at a gas station down the street as it is much, much cheaper. Been clean for six years now but I think about it everyday and even dream about it sometimes. Meetings help but I turned to our God and he delivered me from a life that really wasn't worth living. Stay strong brother. It will be a long term fight but you can win it.

It's on both sides of my family, not an excuse! My bio donor threw my mother threw a plate glass window naked. I wanted to kill him for that, yet here I am with the same drinking problem. I have and never will have the urge to do what he did to my mom.

re: Who will admit to be in recovery?
What was your overall level of enjoyment of life, say at 6 months and a year. Maybe at 2 years as well. And what are some earthly ways you began to enjoy life again? Know what I'm getting at?

If you don't mind my asking...

re: Who will admit to be in recovery?
I am a relatively happy person and was at six months and year. The truth is that even through redemption I still live a somewhat defeated life even though it's not what the Lord wants for me. During my time as a junkie I did lots of regrettable things especially not being a good dad to my three children. Because of that my thoughts at night are of regret and they are a great source of pain. I dont know how to forgive myself. I would rather live life like this however rather than shooting up behind a locked bathroom door while my kids need help with their homework. Without Christ I would likely be dead or in jail.
