Now is not the time to give up. You've made some good progress. You need to push through this difficulty and when you arrive on the other side of it, you will be stronger for the next time things get rough. Life is never smooth sailing. You need to do it to prove to yourself that you can and to show you are serious about kicking this thing. Continue with the therapy and call someone you can talk to about it. We'll continue to pray for you too.

There is nothing I can add to the words of wisdom and sound advice already given. I just want to add my care and concern for you MLB at this very poignant time of year. ( And for anyone else suffering in this way) All I can add is that I have a friend who 'came through it' and if you have faith then believe that God can and will help you all. Your Mother included.
Hang in there.

I am bumping this up because he hasn't been on since this thread. Does anyone have any news about him?

Thanks, Stacy. I've been thinking about him. Hope he is well, happy and safe.

Gee, Stacy--this was rather chilling to read. I hope for the best but I fear the worst.

May those with substance abuse problems stay strong and have a very sober (not dry) New Year!!!

I've thought of him so many times. I spoke to him quite a few times early in the year but he was really having a rough time and not doing well. The only number I had for him was his mother's and then suddenly it was disconnected and I never heard from him again. He's a lovely young man struggling with such terrible addictions and depression - I hope he he's still fighting the battle. But his health was very precarious at that point in his addiction and I fear the worst as well.

I struggle with my addictions every minute of every day.

On 12/15 I was taken by ambulance to the hospital due to my addictions. Here's to the new year and turning over a new leaf!
