Heroin Addict

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by Ponder This @ 9:28

My brother left his heroin addict girlfriend for the third time. Something keeps pulling him back into the dysfunction known as drug addiction. He said everyone in the neighborhood uses heroin, it is only $25 for a fix. One OxyContin pill is $60. I’ll share more on this blog but for this first post about heroin addiction, I wanted to get two points across:
YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO CHANGE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS AND EVEN MOVE
YOU HAVE TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP BECAUSE THE CRAVINGS ARE TOO STRONG FOR YOU TO TRY TO QUIT ON YOUR OWN, TRUST ME

A New Bottle

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by Ponder This @ 9:28

How much of my life were you around.
There were no good mornings,
Nurturing hugs, or words of comfort,
But you had a new bottle.

I wasn’t daddy’s little girl,
I was just a person taking up space.
My clothes were hand-me-downs,
But you had a new bottle.

Dinner Time wasn’t a family gathering,
You were usually drunk and threw your food on the ceiling.
Mom struggled to put food on the table,
But you had a new bottle.

At nights when all should be quite,
The monsters would steal my peace,
I cried myself to sleep.
But you had a new bottle.
