Stopping Addiction

©

Published: March 2008

I have nothing to say
  to you anymore.
I'm taking my life back
  and shutting the door.
You've taken from me
  God's image of me.
I'm letting you go
  and I want to be free.
I won't go on hating
  from inside my heart.
It's time to step up
  and make a new start.
I want to stop hurting.
  It seems so unfair.
But I have to find me.
  I'm in here somewhere.
I can't do it with YOU.
  You're no good in my life.
Without YOU I can become
  a truly mindful mother and wife.

Well spoken and you WILL succeed! It is hard, you might struggle a lot at first. Sobriety is more then getting clean it is relearning to live and stepping into the roles of mother and wife from where you have been can overwhelm, don't let it. Remember breathe, one step and one moment at time. And each time you start slipping look at the unconditional love of your child and laughter and delight they get from being with mom.
