This is not the usual kind of post I send. However there are so many people out there who have to deal with this problem whether it is from the user or their loved ones. I hope this poem can be of some help to just beginning to tackle addiction.
Should you have an addict friend
Some sage advice I’ll gladly lend:
They’ll plea for poison with all their might,
Keep helping hand far out of sight.
They have a problem they’ll deny,
And your aloofness they’ll decry;
Stay focused but still be their friend,
Contribute not to a sad end.
Addiction’s very hard to break,
So understand a life’s at stake;
Encourage rehab so they might mend,
But enable not or you’re no friend.
Be not judgmental and plainly see
But for God’s good grace could goest ye;
So clearly, plainly understand
Do nor extend an enabling hand.!
