Welcome, or Welcome Back

I had this blog off-line for a long time.  I've gotten a few requests recently to put it back up so here I am.  I don't know how often I will write, but I will answer any comments left on old posts and try to write at least once a week or so.

During the last five years the most valuable part of my journey through this hell of parenting an addict has been the support, wisdom and care of the blog community.  I want to still be here for other parents.

Currently Keven has almost a year clean from heroin and meth (as of 8/24/13).  Its been a long year.  There have been ups and downs but way more ups.  He's working full time, making car payments.  Living like a "normie" in most aspects.

Every now and then I suspect something is up.  My gut reaction will kick in and think the worst.  But as of today nothing has happened other than a few one time bad choices.  This is why living One Day at a Time is so crucial.  I'd be a nervous wreck if I thought too far in advance.

Thanks for checking out this blog....there's a lot here from time gone by.  I still have a little book with the names of all the parents and addicts that I "pray for" daily.  Never a day goes by without me thinking of them.

Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara

Barbara,

What do you think made him want to change? As I read along it seemed that everything that could happen and he just could not or would not change.....just like my girl. But now he has been clean along time,has work and normal friends. I am so happy for you both but how did it happen?
