Need a prayer & support, from my new friends

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

Need a prayer & support, from my new friends

Postby mustangsally » Sun Mar 24, 2013 5:32 pm

My AS just called here sounding terrible, harldly could talk. He is not supposed to call or be on our property. I ssid he sounded horrible and he should go to hospital emergency for it. He said he was at the hospital and they institutionalized him because he could not talk and he'll probably be going back to jail. I asked him twice more where he was and he said the City train station. I asked him what he wanted twice more and he said just to tell me he missed me. I said I missed him too. He then said he needed to get out of the country. I said he just needed to get off Crystal Meth and he hung up on me.

What could I have done different? Or is doing nothing the best thing to do. My daughter just spent time with him on Friday night and he seemed fine. I just wish it did not hurt so much to not enable them.

I am sorry for your pain and I am sending you and your family prayers and also prayers for your AS.
This horrible disease of addiction takes so much from us all and I always have to remember that I did not cause it, I cannot control it and definitely cannot cure it. If I overstep my boundaries I can contribute to it, so I have to remember my boundaries, repeat the Serneity Prayer as often as I need and realize I am never alone again.
Blessings, Judith

Prayers , prayers and more prayers coming your way, I know how hard this is, I get it. I have learned it is best for all involved to just love from a distance and hold onto hope. A special prayer for you for you own peace and serenity. All the support you could ever ask for is yours for the taking. This is just the way things are today, we just never know what may happen tomorrow. Just taking life one day at a time, and keeping my mind where my feet are really helps keep me grounded. You are never alone again , we are all in this together and stronger together. My ad is a Meth addict too, I get it.

love and prayers,

My heart goes out to you and I feel your pain. I will keep your son in my prayers that he reaches out for recovery. You will be in my prayers for strength during this difficult time. May your HP wrap his arms around you and hold you tight.

Dear Friend,
I am so sorry. You tried to be present, to reach out to your son. I understand. The addict was in charge, but your son is in there somewhere and the pain of knowing that is difficult. Let go and let God, pray that your HP sends his mightiest angel to watch over your AS. I'll pray for your serenity, that you find the way to live in the eye of his storm, as nothing we do, or do not do, brings them to healing - that is his path alone. Take good care of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you and your family go through this difficult time. Hold on to your program and your HP. I am praying that your son find the strength to find recovery too.

I am sorry you are having to deal with this.

I know how heartbreaking it is. I have asked myself
those same questions, so many times. "What could
I have said or done differently?"

The only answer I could ever give myself is that if I
keep trying to relive the experience or figure out
what the outcome will be it only makes me more miserable
and more stuck. So I have learned to let it go and just let
it be. Step 1.

I also found solace that at least my son did call me
so I knew he was alive. Also, after seeing this pattern
repeat itself over and over, I figured out that he is trying
to reach out for help. Addiction is miserable and no
one, not even an active addict wants to live that horrible

Stay close, we understand, we are here for you.
