Reclaiming My Rape, for My Sake and My Daughter’s
When the addictive process has lasted long enough and penetrated deeply enough into the life and mind of the addict, the empty space left by the losses caused by progressive, destructive addiction is filled up with regrets, if-onlys and could-have-beens. In early addiction the addict tends to live in the future; in middle and late addiction he begins to dwell more and more in the past.
And it is usually an unhappy, bitterly regretted past. The first casualty of addiction, like that of war, is the truth. At first the addict merely denies the truth to himself. But as the addiction, like a malignant tumor, slowly and progressively expands and invades more and more of the healthy tissue of his life and mind and world, the addict begins to deny the truth to others as well as to himself.

Sounds like good news, right? Wrong, if you are serious about your drug addiction recovery. Unfortunately, starting a romance when you are newly sober could be a costly mistake. If you are living a solid healthy life, you can handle the ups and downs of a new relationship. But if you are just getting things together as a newly recovering drug addict, a romance can be way too distracting. Alcoholics Anonymous has a specific guideline about getting into a relationship during recovery.
They strongly encourage a person to wait until they have been sober for at least a year before they start dating. For some, this may seem strict, even beyond the bounds of a self-help group.
How long does Adderall stay in your system?
Chaos naturally accompanies the disease of addiction. What used to be a happy home can quickly take on the appearance of a circus — especially if your spouse is actively abusing drugs. What about your feelings, wants and needs?

Questions Won’t admit using meth? I have been “lurking” on this board for several days, and think you guys are awsome. I have several questions about meth use. I have never used, nor been around anyone who is using, but I have an old friend who I am positive is using now. I have not seen much of her in the last couple of years, but had heard she was using, so 2 other friends and I arranged to meet up with her for dinner, to see what her frame of mind is, and of course, to offer support.
I have been reading about meth use constantly since finding this out, and I understand that she has to admit she has a problem I have several questions though, so please excuse my ignorance, and the long post. One of my friends confronted her privately, and let her know that she had heard she was using. Of course, she flat out denied it. Do you wait until they are ready to admit it, or do you continue to offer support and hope they eventually open up?
Do you let them know that you aren’t falling for their line for a second, or leave it alone? She has two kids who live in the home, and a husband who i know has used in the past, but I’m not sure of his status at the moment.

Loving an Addict: When it’s Time to Let go
By Kristina Randle, Ph. When I met my boyfriend, it was an instant attraction on the phone. He was a friend of a friend and came highly recommended. When I met him finally it was an instant attraction in person. We both felt like it was just right.
My suggestion is to support your daughter as much as possible. Couch this in the terms of “helping him” and have her come down with you to some kind of drug centre or AlAnon equivalent to talk with a counsellor about what family can do to support addicts.
I most recently went to NA meetings with him. All this time wasted. We have 4 children together. We were married and then divorced. We got back together 4 years ago because he completed his first intensive 6 month rehab program. He was clean for 2 years after that and then everything went down hill these last couple years. I asked him to leave the house 2 days ago. I wish him luck. All I ever wanted was a husband who was there for me. I figured if I let him go now, God will send to me someone who is good for me.
