addiction doesnt care....

Addiction doesnt care....it starts out as an inocent drink. Pill. Line..etc. addiction doesnt know race sex or status....addiction loves to lie....addiction tricks you into thinking you can stop anytime...your in control....addiction changes our brain chemistry....youll forget all your consequences. Addiction is selfesh....it steals your money. Relationships self esteem. Addiction has one goal....to cometely take over you. It will demamd all of you. And when you try to break free it shows the true power it has....

addiction can be managed...with hard work self awareness and a strong desire to stay clean and sober.  If you think oh ill detox for a couple of days and feel better your being very naive. ...

addiction will trick you into believing you learned your lesson from the horrific detox and whisper to you that next time your in control. Next time youll take your meds correctly.....and you just might believe the lie again again....

sooo....to all my friends out there stay strong keep your guard up and when addiction whispers learn to ignore that nagging voice and trust y o ur first thoughts about staying clean and ignore the whisper.....

addiction will make you stronger in the end. Teach you many many things. Youll be a better person when you can manage. .....just keep up the fight and keep your guard up.....
