Just like an addict the parent and other loved ones of an addict can only live in today. I know that is true for all people but definitly those of an addict . As the parent if you look back to the yesterday you will beat yourself up with so many things and if you look to tomorrow you will holds the regrets of yesterday in your mind be/c of what could of been and did not happen. I have learned many things from being a parent of an addict . I have learned its ok to be angry and to hate the drug addict and all the things that happened through their addiction. I have learned that people are going to judge the situation of addiction no matter what choice you as a parent does to help or not help the drug addict child . I have learned most of all one can not undo regret .
Today is the day we must focus on most of all because today is the only day they i can take min by min second by second and try not to live from yesterday and make promises for tomorrow I may not be able to fufill because today did not go as planned. I am continual holding my breath waiting to breathe but that is just for today may tomorrow I will exhale completly
