Sometimes doing time has saved lives
Sometimes, doing time has saved our lives. We might have died otherwise, sometimes we need that wake up call!

I have pointed this out to countless parents here. As ugly and harsh as prison is it is less bad than knowing your loved one is in a morgue.

And sadly, for many seriously involved in a life of drugs a morgue is where they end up.

Many women I met in prison agreed and often said this exact same thing.

My husband has said many times that going to prison saved his life as he was so messed up with meth

My husband has said the same thing. If not for prison he would probably be dead.

A guard told me he got to tell a guy his mom was visiting and he hadn't seen her in years.

addictions runs rampant in our family, both sides. I've known for years there are only three outcomes for addicts (a recovering alcoholic since 1993): recovery, institutionalized (prison included) or death. It's a horrible disease, but it is what it is. I, for one, am grateful today. My son is doing his time, but he's clear headed and living life on its terms.

I always tell people that my daughter and jail saved my life.
I needed my kido to slow me down and I needed jail to learn how to bond with women - I had a deep seeded issue with women, I use to blame it on my mom, for being so cruel and on my dad for abandoning me with another woman.
I learned so much in jail - soooo much!! I really needed it, as hard as it was being a young single mom, I'm so thankful everything occurred the way it did - I even met my husband while I was incarcerated.

I didn't know my guy before he went in, but I know what he did and what kind of person he was. He has said to me, being in prison didn't change me, I changed me.

Well no love, being in prison changed you. It made you WANT to change yourself. He was 26 when he went in and he'll be 40 when he gets out. So it definitely changed him even if he doesn't want to admit that.
