You simply MUST go and read THIS POST!!
It is so true it makes my eyes water. If you have ever known anyone who battled addiction, or have battled it yourself, you need to read it. Even if you don't know anyone on the battlefield, you still should read it.
If you are on the battlefield, read it, believe it and then get thyself some help. Al Anon if it isn't you, AA if it is. They work. They change lives. Lives so desperate for change that only a room full of strangers who have been exactly where you are can help you.
In this day and age of addiction, we need to wake up and realize Satan goes for the throat-AND, he is no respecter of persons-he wants us all equally.
