    Addictions goal; it’s reason for being, is pretty much the same as cancer. To ravage a person behind belief, and then kill you dead. Dead is dead. There are not different levels of it, there is no second chance, there is no negotiating with it. Those left behind are left with the same emptiness and questions, and those closest who know the real reason are left anger, resentment, sorrow, and trauma.

    Addiction doesn’t care who you are, what color or sex your are, what you do, where you live, where you work. It doesn’t care if you’re married or single, if you have kids or just pets, if your rich or poor.

    It also doesn’t care what it is you abuse. The drug of choice is not what defines whether or not a person is an addict.

    Loss is loss, and dead is dead. This is what addiction does. Sometimes slowly, sometimes fast. It’s not a question of “if”, it’s a question of “when”. And there’s no way of knowing when.

    Great post! Thanks Doug! We all come here with so many questions :boggled: and I think we all want that easy answer to our problem, but there isn’t any. It will kill you , as I’ve seen here way to many times, the only solution I’ve found for me was to ‘Not Use’ no matter what, and do whatever it took/takes for ‘me’ to continue to not use.

    Doug…Thank you for your insightful posts such as this one!

    It’s not a question of “if”, it’s a question of “when”.

    So true!!
