Lost the good fight....

Here I am again...where I always end up when I'm in a spot that I have so much on my mind that I just have to get it out. Imagine that.

First off...I'm still clean...so now worries there. Almost 2 years actually.
But Friday my husband and I lost an old friend to addiction. Our hearts are broken. He was such a GOOD guy! He didn't deserve it. He had just lost his way is all. He had been lost for quite some time, but we always kept in touch because he lived just down the road. The last few days have made me realize more than ever that addiction really does NOT discriminate! He came from a great family, had a good job, beautiful children and everything in the world to live for. I just don't understand how God can take such good ppl away because they've made a mistake. I know I'm being irrational, but it really does break my heart. We have a viewing and funeral to go to Wednesday, and I'm just not sure how I'm gonna hold up. :(:(

First of all, you scared the sh*t out of me with your post!!!  I was relieved to read on that it wasn't you, but am so so sorry that you have lost someone close to this insidious disease.
I wish you comfort and peace.  My heart goes out to you, to his family, and everyone affected by this tragic loss.
Big hugs,
Lu

I am sorry to read of your friend.  I know how this feels and it suks the big one.  You will get thru the viewing and funeral.  When someone passes away from this addiction it always makes me more dedicated to my own recovery a s it does not discriminate.  One more time can very well be our last time.  Wishing you peace and comfort!~
