Sending some prayers your way. Relapses can be killers and not just for the addict. Stay strong. This too will pass. Hugs, Marle

Amen from me too. I remember that weird mix of emotions I felt when I realized I was done, too, whether or not HE was. I just didn't need a front row seat for all that drama anymore.

Hugs

I felt that way about my son not too long ago.
He seemed to be on a death mission. He was drinking daily. He reeked of it all the time. It lasted about 6 months. Today, he is still at his dad's. Has been seeing
a cougar. A cougar, I just found out from seeing Ocean's 13, is an older woman who dates younger men. He's 25. She's 36. She doesn't drink, do drugs, and a few months ago, left her husband of 17 years. She works at a store that my as goes to.
That's how they met. Anyway, since meeting (sleeping with) her, he has completely done a 360. Except for the pot. Still smoking pot, when he can afford to buy it, which isn't too often lately. So now he has a new mama. lol
He is doing better and that's all that matters to me. His dad still drinks and acts stupid. I gave up on him a looooooong time ago.
Stay strong. Sending prayers up for your daughter, you, and the rest of your family.
It affects everyone. I'm sorry, sweetie.
Love,
Linda

(((((Parentcovers))))), Don't know what to say except that I know how you feel.
Try to keep your focus on you. Situations don't last forever. It is what it is for today.

Praying for peace for you and restoration for your daughter...............Lo

i'd LIKE to feel abandoned by my higher power and mad at every little person, place, and thing. but i'm trying very hard not to. instead i will feel grateful and hopeful and strong with whatever today brings my way.

i'll keep practicing...

thanks everyone. k

K. I hope we will recognize serenity when we reach it. I cannot tell you the times I could not sleep and saying the prayer over and over finally help me rest.

I will include you in my serenity prayer today and tonight. Peace be with you.

k, I have not seen my daughter for over 3 months. I was starting to miss her so my husband and I sat down and recounted what we have been thru for the last 2 years with her. I know it is not good to live in the past, but sometimes remembering is what it takes for me to know that I can't change her and I can't live with her addiction. Sending some hugs. Marle

I guess she still has more experimenting to do. Sending prayers that this will be short lived and that she will want recovery soon. Hugs, Marle

Ya'll remain in my prayers. Kasey almost walked out Monday, too. Britney walked out twice in one week! She will find her way back. God answers prayers.
