Wishing all of you a most Happy New Year! Praying that 2013 is full of blessings, peace and miracles for everyone. My son is doing very well. He graduated from a 6 month program on 12/12/12. He is allowed to stay with the program and look for a job, so that is what he is doing. I continue to live life one day at a time, and also to lean on God for my peace. My hope for anyone going through the pain of having an addicted loved one is that they would get into Celebrate Recovery, Nar-Anon Family Groups, Al-Anon, a Church, a Meditation group, or any healthy group that lets you know you are NOT ALONE! The only choice we have is to learn to have a peaceful life inspite of what our loved ones are doing. We CANNOT control them or make them better. If we could, we would be doing it-and we would be shouting the solution from the rooftops- at least I know I would, as I wouldn't wish the type of pain you feel when your loved one is addicted, on ANYONE. Learning to take care of ourselves is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and our loved ones. Wishing you all a most joyous New Year!
