>My son was about 17 when he was admitted to a well-respected six-month program in South Boston. He learned how to read and write recovery at this facility, his ABC’s so to speak. Thanks to that strong foundation he now practices and “speaks” fluent recovery. It was a long lesson that continues today, but he has learned much. He will continue to learn and study.
Reminding ourselves that we have decided to go to any lengths to find a spiritual experience, we ask that we be given strength and direction to do the right thing, no matter what the personal consequences may be.
Our family was tossed into the addiction war zone as soon as he sipped his beer. The “switch” was flipped that day and active addiction took over his every movement. I learned to deal with it. Live life on life’s terms..one of those terms being that my son had a “disease”. I learned to accept.
Yes he is on my mind. Yes I have said the SERENITY PRAYER more than once today. No I don’t think incarcerating him will help, but the consequences are his to face. At some on the journey I have detached. I love him and want the best.
