To my R !!!!!! AD


One year clean today!!!!!!

Now I can officially say she's an R !!! This is way better than a birthday!!!!
Of course the R is my time limit, not hers. But I couldn't be prouder. I feel that we all need something to celebrate once in a while. What better thing to celebrate, than a one year anniversary.

She has moved into her own apartment near school and her job and she and her abf (who will have a year on Saturday) will soon be announcing their engagement.
It's been a long hard road but there is hope that they finally get it !!!!

What a wonderful story! I like to think that most people with addictions want to be clean... your daughter seems to have made it far enough that she's seen the light at the end of the tunnel. Congratulations to your family, great news!!!

That's wonderful! Congrats to your daughter!!! And congrats to you for all the loving support and for stepping back and letting them find their way!
So does her move mean you have your house daughter and no daughter's abf in residence? If so, enjoy the serenity!

Thanks for all the prayers, good wishes and the many rolls of duct tape that I have used just trying to survive with a small part of my sanity intact.

Maybe this post will help anyone who is struggling with wondering if there is any hope for their addict. There is but only when they decide that they are totally done with it all.

When my daughter finally decided that she could not continue, she made up her mind and started running the other way as fast as she could. This is not to say that it was easy, it wasn't. There were many bumps along the way for both of us. Even now there are a lot of times that I really don't like her, sober or not. But I stay out of her way cause it's her way, not mine.

And I do have the house back or as back as it can be with 4 crazy cats and one very spazzy dog, all who feel that my purpose in life is to serve pet food on little golden platters, go for walks and admire the fur that they are shedding all over the house....
