I release you to your addiction, and I willingly replace my love with silence.
After Addiction Road to Happiness
The Roman poet Publilius Syrus has said many wise things, but the truth of his famous saying about habit affects us all every day anew.
Mrs Narayan, who runs her own tourism company in Noida, admits that her job profile kept her away from her children for long periods.

If you are struggling with Klonopin and withdrawals from it, or you know someone that is, this is for you.
I am just going to jump in! I hate addiction but I recognize it, I know that it's a nasty mental health disease that is wiping out our current generation. The disease that has kids growing up without one or both parents, kids witnessing things they should never have to see, children torn from their homes, and parent burying their children and raking in their grandchildren. Addiction was something I felt so lucky to have escaped, or at least for awhile I thought I did. I was the one who didn't care to drink or go to house parties, but I loved smoking my weed and being home. Even at 17 and 18. As I got a little older I experimented with acid once, ecstasy a few times and when it was my clubing years I got into cocaine. All of which I could take or leave it and it didn't control my life. Year's go by and I'm diagnosed with some medical conditions that land me on and off pain meds for 10 years, I formed a dependence. Fortunately I escaped using heroin and anything more then a 10 mg percocet. It's been 5 years since my last one.

First I am going to give you examples of myths that people have over drug addicts , that the addict has to deal with along with their addiction.
I have struggled with alcohol throughout my life. From 2014 to 2016 I quit for 2 years and 4 days. I had a slip when I was on vacation, I wasn’t prepared for the circumstances and I chose to drink one night. I secretly drank after that slip, on and off for about 3 months. I then got back on the wagon and made it another 9 months sober, until I decided to quit smoking. When I quit smoking my anxiety was through the roof in the early days. I chose to use alcohol to combat that anxiety, I told myself ‘at least I’m not smoking’. I wasn’t smoking cigarettes but I was unleashing a demon I had thought I put to rest already.
