Any of you have experience with addiction or a loved ones addiction you have dealt with?
Yes, many of us here openly speak about past issues with both substance abuse and physical dependency to opiates or other drugs / alcohol do you need help ? everyone here is a friend
Yes, drugs and alcohol and sex. The Lord rescued me. You are among friends here, like MisterB said.

Sex is my addiction. For some reason I find sex relieves stress in my life. One time I was addicted to morphine after having a surgery, so I had to be brought down slowly and surely to minimize withdrawals. I knew a friend who was addicted to cocaine and she was able to quit and another friend who quick painpills. I heard heroin addiction is the toughest to deal with. Now they have a ton of fentanyl floating around which is bad news! Beware of fucking with that!
Ask and you shall receive..We are hear to help
i was also a sex addict , amongst other issues, narcotics, alcohol ..
how can you help someone who is?
encourage them to get into treatment and go to aa/na
They want treatment, no money
It's insane people can't get help
In my experience the person u speak about has to really want to stop what ever they r addicted to. In away they have to hit the lowest of the low, hit rock bottom. When they r determined enough they can then run down the rabbit hole to get rid of their addiction. If they r not ready yet all u can do is b there waiting in support for that day.

well she want's it, can't find funding
Alton is right.......... fighting addiction only truly works when the Person is "Done"! And, if they are truly done...then something as trivial as funding will not stop them from getting help or stopping the addiction. Not trying to trivialize the need for money, just that if a person truly wants to stop with their addiction, they won't let money be an excuse as to why they can't stop.
btw, congratulations to whoever the friend is for realizing they have an issue and wanting to do something about their addiction. It takes a lot of strength and determination to follow through with it.
I like to have a beer or 3 at night to help me sleep. On top of my med marijuana. Not sure it's an addiction. But my girl is an alch and sometimes it's tough to deal with. My bro,dad and sis are all alchs. I can't drink nearly as much as them. But when I was in the corps I put it away and had way more than I should have. I'm more scared than anything to become like that because I've seen what it does. And it scares the hell out of me. My father was violent when he got drunk and he did it a lot. He would also pass out and leave us to fend for our selves. I'm talkin three kids in the single digits taking care of eachother. My bro quit because he found the lord.
Man, if I could let you see what addiction has put me through bro. Coke, meth, alcohol. It's a fucking hard thing to kick. But I finally pulled my head out of my ass and got off the hard drugs awhile ago. Just got done doing my own detox from alcohol, shit was terrible. Three days of uncontrollably bad sweating and horrible shakes and vomiting and feeling super sick. I am off of everything now. Was a very hard road. Being homeless, sleeping on random couches, never staying in the same area long, moved to 4 different states. But all in all I am stronger and more determined then ever to never go back to that life now. Wish I didn't have to go through all that to learn a lesson that it's not worth it!!!! But I'm all clean and sober now. Gonna be starting a cycle around the 1ST. Will keep you all posted and informed!!!! Stay sober- GoPro.
She is supposed to be letting her drive her out of state to treatment this weekend. Let's see if she shows.
I have an addiction. I feel terribly guilty when I don't work out. Right now I am taking a break from the weights because of multiple lingering injuries but I still do cardio every single day even when I'm super tired. If I don't I cannot sleep or eat.
she's still addicted but waking up
