    Hi, I'm a Addict.

    I don't think any of who have experienced addiction ever imagine what that first hit, first sip, or first pill would lead to. If you talked to us pre-addiction we would never dream of doing the things we would do to keep using, or how much it would cost us, not only in money...

    So, I Came to My Dad's Last Night.

    I spent the night last night.  It took me forever to fall asleep knowing my laptop was in the living room with them.  At one point I noticed that my purse was unzipped.  I couldn't remember if I'd left it open or not.  When I got alone in the bedroom I counted...
