    My prayers are with you and your family. I am proud of you for making a very difficult decision and seeing it through. Hopefully she will get the help she needs.

    ((Tazzi)) Thank you for sharing your story. My heart truly goes out to you. I am also in recovery and the hardest thing I've ever had to do is watch my 23 y/o son follow my (bad) example. He is still practicing his addictions and I know that there is nothing else I can do for him but pray. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your daughter, and your entire family.

    I give you credit for what you did. My mother is an emotional mess right now because of some family issues. She has been an alcoholic for 20+ years, and over the last 10 years addicted to rx drugs. My sister and I are considering doing an intervention too. Good luck and I will say a prayer.

    wow, tazz...
    the blessing is, it sounds like she wants help.
    she will soon realize everyone who is pulling for her.
    that, and God, are the greatest supports of all.
    my prayers are with you and yours.:redpinkhe

    Sorry you are going through this but I am sure your daughter really appreciates this although probably doesn't feel like it at the moment

    I know it's hard, but it sounds like the tough love approach might be helping. Take some time to find some peace of mind for yourself as well.

    Keep in touch.
