I really hate it.
My friend's aunt is addicted to smoking and alchohol. Her aunt got into a drunk
driving accident recently. In the hospital. THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE. I'm so fricken
pissed at it.
But seriously people, If anyone in your family is addicted to something you need to
stop them from whatever. I see all these girls a boys from my school, smoking,
outside of school, WITH TEACHERS, just walking by. They aren't doing anything to stop
this problem so who is?
When a family member becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol, it affects the whole
family unit. No one is sure what to do or how to react. This is a often a time to
practice tough love. Family members must be firm with the addict in order not to be
guilty of becoming enablers for his or her addiction. When the addict reaches rock
bottom, he may realize that it is his responsibility to rebuild his life. Now it is
up to him claw his way out of the hole he has dug. His friends and family can either
help or hinder his efforts.
My Mother Vs. Meth
Most days I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs,
I want my mother back who is this monster you have become?
I really haven't known who you are for quite a while,
But I try to act tough so I force this fake smile.
You love someone else way more than me,
Her name is Crystal Meth and I don't think she'll ever set you free.
She's had you in her hands for about 10 years,
But all of those years are nothing compared to my fear.
Fear of you lying
Fear of you dying
Fear of having so much faith in you and just being left crying.
You wrote me letters from prison and promised the sky,
More than 3 years later and nothing but lies.
Nothing but heartache, pain, and misery...
I GET IT NOW, you choose her over me.
You've told me to my face that it was drugs over me,
Even that wasn't enough to make me see.
Today you will tell me that you are clean
You give me so much hope, then tomorrow it's the same ole' dope phen.
I'm telling you now that I am through with you
This comes from my heart and every word of it's true.
I can't promise that I will be around to see
But when you get tired of that meth you will see
All along you had something way better
And it was your family
I do thank you so much for one thing
Thank you for showing me how important a good mother should be.
And to never show my children the pain that you showed me.
So, today I officially set myself free.
Because I know there's a stronger woman in me.
I didn't write these poems, but I hope they speak to you.
FIGHT FOR YOUR FRIENDS, RELATIVES, A RANDOM GUY SMOKING ON THE STREET CORNER. STOP
THEM. (Well, don't talk to strangers kid.)
Don't just stop at drugs and alchohol! There are many kinds of addiction such as the
addiction to child pornography, wrong am I right?
I know I'm ranting but that's just me.
Thanks for reading.
