All drug addictions are awful, but meth is really something extra awful. And I thought crack was the worst on families... meth seems even worse.
Through my work I've heard of meth addict parents being confronted by child welfare that they have to stop using or they'll lose their kids, and the parents responding with "Ok, take the kids."
It's an extremely screwed up drug, and I saw an excellent presentation on why it's so extremely addictive (what the physical effects are on the brain) and I swear I wish everyone who ever was about to use a drug for the 1st time could be made to sit through a 1 hr presentation on what they are about to get into! That's how it works in my fantasy world, anyway....
Good luck to all of you dealing with addicted family members, and thank heavens for those of you willing to take a really active role in the children of these families.
p.s. MommyKelly I just saw in your sig that you're "Momma to NINE"!!!!!!!!! You get extra extra "thank heavens" for that one!
