11 Year Old Missing her Sister & Dad Since Their Addiction

Having a father and a sister that were both drug addicts, did not give me a good life. It was hard on my life. It affected my school grades, it affected the way my parents treated each other, and most important it affected my life in a very bad way. I've learned a lot in life for these reasons.  Since my dad was a drug addict he missed a lot of parts of my life like my school talent shows, my science fairs, my chorus concerts, and a lot of my birth days. I still remember the first time my...

Do Parents Make Their Kids Use Drugs?

The question I ask is, “Do parents make their kids use drugs?” The answer should be no because who’s really making anyone do anything; you would think? But this question isn’t intended for the family that wants to see their child flourish in recovery or to have never touched drugs or alcohol at all. This question is meant a little bit differently, because there are some parents out there who bribe and give their children extremely strong narcotics in return for getting out of the house, favors, and other mediocre things that could be done just by asking.

“My Sober Cards Journey”- SoberCityUSA

I went to rehab on March 15, 2010; not kicking and screaming, rather: emotional, anxious and scared of what my life would look like living sober.  I saw a lot of things in treatment, mostly because my brain was clearing up and I was starting to realize it’s full potential. I was starving for good, ...
