My baby would be home if he had not been "under the DEMON influence", his addiction HAD a hold of him. He's done with it, going down was his wake up call. Going down saved his life......on so many levels.

My man has had a nine year addiction to Heroine and now has found the safety of jail to help him kick his habbit. I think it was a blessing in disguise.

The same can be said for my boyfriend. The reason he is currently in is b/c of cocaine use and this time it really hit him in the bum. Ultimately, this time around was the official "wake up" call.

my son has struggled for years with alcohol and occasionally, other drugs. Even when he got clean...his so called friends would not leave him alone and it was too easy for him to hide from life behind numbness. It was a vicious circle for many years...luckily it was all co jail time
However, this time...even tho he had been sober for quite some time...slipped up, make a stupd decision while under the influence and he is now in prison and just received his first flop.

How did you handle it whrn "friends" came along and gave them the squeeze or your not cool anymore attitude? Even when I put my foot down, they would just come over when im not home.

Yes, Stinky Pot was stoned off of both weed and alcohol and a bad attitude contributed to the crime he committed.

my man was selling painkillers and coke to support his oxy habit which is an expensive habit.he got charged for selling but he was using more of his own supply than really ever selling.Good thing is hes in prison and its helped sober him up being drug free has helped him appreciate and see life for what it is.hopefully he keeps that attitude up when he gets out

yes, my husband was on prescribed pills, but not taking them as prescribed thats why he is in this time. hopefully this is the last i think this has give him time to realize he was wasting his life. so now he has a whole different outlook on life and is a different person than he was when he went in this time also has saved our marriage

Yes, my brother was high on coke. I really hope he stays clean from now own. I was so scared when I learned about his drug habits. I don't want to say that drugs were responsible because he has admitted he was wrong and claims responsibility, and I am proud of him for that. Obviously drugs played a big role in decreasing the quality of his life, though, as well as harming his relationship with his gf.

My husband is an alcoholic and was intoxicated when he was arrested and stayed that way until about a week or 2 before he SS.

I was at the end of my rope with him and I thankd God everyday he's where he is. Prison saved his life and our marriage.

Randy is an alcoholic and he stole the 4 wheeler on a whim, bad decision. He did it in June '06 and we were together Dec '06... he finally got picked up for prison in Nov '07 but the entire time we were together he didn't get drunk so he's overcome the addiction and now he's gotta pay for the past. He'll be 100% clean of everything once he's out. Only things he touched recently were weed/alcohol and he tried pills/crack for about a week way back and said he's glad he never got hooked on any of them.

Tommy finally told me his whole ordeal of the Robbery. He is in for bank robbery with no weapon...He was on crack and had $150 of crack in his MOUTH when he was arrested...They finally discovered it, but one rock fell out of the plastic baggy and he chewed it up ate it and was sent to the hospital before they could book him. He started using THC when he was in the 6th grade and drugs/alcohol have been his issues since he was 12....sad life. He has been down on this charge 13+ years but has only been sober 3 years..He was smoking weed and drinking home made wine in prison for 10 years..he is hard to change but has finally sobered up now that he has Hep C, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and is nearly blind due to teh Diabetes...FINALLY realizes his body can not handle anymore abuse from drugs...
