Strong Stormy Wind.

I just want to stop.... and take the time to thank this planet and her creatures

for the joy they bring to me.

In the past couple of weeks i have felt the presence of a strong stormy wind getting ready to blow into my life...

And sure enough... whoooshhhhh it was here in the form of a former close friend who is addicted to drugs.

Drug addiction is worse than death, and i have 0000 tolerance for it. I gave this person 2 days of my time, speaking EVERY moment on them reentering rehab. Its all i will give. No more.

Saying a permanent goodbye is never easy. But I donot allow such ugliness into my life.

I have the dolphins to thank for that. They taught me to LOVE myself. The planet around me has taught me the LOVE of great beauty.

Drug addiction is ugly, it should not ever be tolerated on a planet of such beauty.

I mean to offend noone, this is just MY .02 cents.

I know exactly where u are coming from... Unfortunately, I had to deal w/someone earlier in the year who had a drinking issue.. that addiction completely ruined his line of is very hard..There were other reasons why I ended it and the bottom line is that I didn't want to be brought down w/his issues.

Much respect upon you and this entry. Streets over here are filling with such scenery and it indeed breaks my heart to see, making me run home, taking care of my son, as long as possible ...

Please have a good new week.

I'm with you on that one. I really hope that the way I bring up my kids would lead to them never experimenting with that stuff. You values are important and if somebody else doesn't respect that, then they shouldn't suddenly want you to feel sorry fro them. Be strong.

So sorry about your friend. It seems to be a sign of the times.
You did the right thing. Tough love is still love.
Often, telling them you will have nothing to do with them until they have been clean and sober for a period of time is the best way to help them. I know. I was one of those ugly, ugly people.

Don, i think what makes it so hard is that i adored this person. Drug addiction is NOT the person. It is a seperate building the person is living in, an ugly strong building that can never completly be torn down. I understand your love of the sea, it washes over that buliding keeping you clean. I hope one day my friend will find a way to CLEAN the building they choose to live in!
