I have no more secrets and I have great supports. That was 2 years ago! My relationship with you, Addiction, made me a trophy of grace. My journeyStopping drinkingThank you alcoholMy journeysmoking lucy Dear Alcohol You have been the one constant in my life.
I began to bargain with you, set myself limits about how often and how long and I tried to stay away from you.
But you were who people I knew chose to help them in times of good and bad and so I learned the same message and the same way of being. You physically and mentally made me sick, and yet I still kept you around.
You thought you would be saying the goodbye. But that relationship was also linked to my time with you and so when I stopped this relationship with nicotine I knew I had to stay away from you too, at least until I had got over that one and could spend time with you and not miss them.
I have dug deep and am so proud of myself. I was more out of control in our time together and this scared me.
I will not feel the shame and guilt anymore. My family was always on guard. When things began to look up, you grabbed me by the ankles and pulled me right back into the mess. I spent much of my childhood fearful of you and the effect and power that you seemed to have.
I always viewed you as a Jekyll and Hyde character, sometimes making those close to me more affectionate and then at other times causing anger and violence.
For many reasons,I began to rely on you more. I have a lot to live for and you are not part of it. All you ever did was take and take, but you never gave. Me and only Me. My family sees it! How could I do this?
I have so much good in my life but I chose you over everything that is good. From my earliest memories you were always there, firstly in the life of my parents on a daily basis and once I looked old enough to get served in mine.
