I don't like the thought of being addicted, but it feels like past things haunt me. I exist when I'm around people; but when I'm alone I hide from my own thoughts.

I'm honestly disgusted at the path I had chosen along time ago, as inebriated as I used to be. I'm at a loss for words here, i hate to say it but being a coward is not a legitimate career. I feel like I'm falling shamelessly into oblivion.

So many question not enough answers.

Don't give up hope.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Rickee,

Addiction is a VERY frustrating disease and one that will take all of your effort to stop. There are a couple of things I'd like you to remember:

1. Your addiction is a disease not a choice, for you, stopping without outside help is probably nearly impossible.

2. Addiction is a disease of the brain, it changes your brain chemistry so that you must use.

3. Help is available, find a good AA or Celebrate Recovery meeting in your area and start attending daily if possible. I find that some of the best AA meetings are help in churches in the evening, so that would be a good place for you to start. You have already started the 12 step program because you have come to believe that your addiction is unmanageable and that on your own you are powerless over your addiction.

Finally, there is hope available even if you feel hopeless right now, seek help and you will find it.
