    I love my parents but I will never forget being turned away and? the dejection, hopelessness and feelings of worthlessness that accompanied that experience. Fragments of it still exist in my psyche today. And fortunately my parents are remorseful for what they did instead of getting up on podium and acting like they made a hard, but correct choice.

  • Jason Crutchfield says:

    I like how the mom rationalizes shutting her own daughter our of her home. As? a child who received the same tough love treatment of being shut of my own home and forced to become homeless and trust into a world of addicts, criminals, and abusers I know the path she had to take. Equal parts luck, toughening up, and the kindness of strangers. I was lucky/blessed too, but another more likely outcome exists from turning out a child… death, slow or fast.

    The video looks awesome but its really? very difficult to refrain from an Alcoholic addiction. The so called therapy i.e. communication on timely manner is really very important and I found one great resource on Internet which is talking exclusively on ADDICTION is DENTEDEGO its world’s #1 social networking support site

    i was addicted to cigarette and alcohol.but i quit both of them.you know how?
    i realized i am addicted and after that i started to quit.at first it is necessary to understand that you are addicted.dont say some bullshits like”i drink sometimes a lot” or “all people drink.am i addicted?”.
    try to understand you are addicted.after that you definitely try to quit.because? you dont want to be called an “addict”

  • TheIggy457 says:

    I’m sorry to hear if anyone is struggling with drug addictions of any type. If you want help, and can’t find help, or if the help you seek isn’t helping you. Try what I have done. Accepted Jesus as Lord in your life. ask him to help you with your addiction, and make a vow to him that you will live for him. If you sincerely desire to stop your addiction then God will deliver you from? that stronghold in your life.
    Prepare for your life to be changed. Bless you. HE HAS DELIVERED ME : )

    I found the CURE for? addiction and I have proof for this claim. Click on my name and witness Powerful Stories of Freedom. I personally know and have witnessed over 100 addicts who have found True and Lasting FREEDOM after being enslaved by their addictions for so long. I have been through many programs for my addiction, but have never found so much Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love than I have in the program I am? in now. And the people I know who have given their stories are experiencing the same!

  • DrMickaelleDougherty says:

    “If you find self-reform too hard
    In spite of your intense desire
    For lack of firmness to? discard
    The habits that stink of the mire,
    There is no reason to despair,
    Try what you can time and again,
    Beseech your Maker to repair
    The faults and you in strength will gain.”
