There is so much loss in the life of a drug addict and their families and I know I have referenced to it many times in my blog post and will probably continue because loss is the one of the consistent things that do occur in the world of drug addiction but the out of all the things lost and never regained the most senseless and tragic is the loss of life because of the disease of addiction.
No parent should ever have to bury a child but sometimes it is unstoppable ,diseases occur , car accident happens , even horrifically one could be murdered or commit suicide. All of those loses are heartbreaking but the loss of a life to an overdose is so senseless and so preventable on so many levels , Addictions kills when one chooses not to stop but once the addiction takes the life of the addict for them it is over but for their loved ones their mom and dads the loss is forever and it is a loss that can destroy them just as much as the drugs destroyed the addict and it is SO SENSELESS SO VERY SENSELESS.
Every time I hear about another life taking b/c of this disease it breaks my heart and I wonder will my son decide one more time will be ok. See another young person in our community lost their life this weekend to the battle of addiction someone my son knew someone he used and hung with a beautiful life taken way before they had a chance to live. Words do not help in this situation no matter how comforting they are and how heartfelt they mean to be. I wonder what does one addict truly think when another addict dies from the same thing they do no matter how in invinceable they think they are somewhere in the back of their mind their invincibility must waver some.
