Rejecting your own selfish strife
Not giving a dam about your wife
Leaving your children out of your life
Only your addiction in your sight
An expert at hiding your symptoms
Not able to handle your problems
Holding your family up for ransom
No responsibility for their outcome

A powerful piece of writing, Michael. I like this.
Thanks Paul. Everyone needs to “own” what is theirs.
😦 hindsight is often 20/20 still sad though especially when faced cold sober!, heartwrenching piece!
Thank you. Hopefully this will ring true to other addicts and open their eyes as to how they have an effect over their loved ones.
