Intervention-Fighting the Disease of Addiction
Quitting is more than giving up the drug- it's giving up who you were and finding who you can be.
Addiction is hard enough without the judgment of others who have no idea what it feels like to be lost in that much confusion and pain. The pull from within is terrifying and the fear alone is enough to bring the strongest of people to their knees. If you can't understand the loss a person feels when they lose themselves to addiction-rather than judge, open your ears to hear and perhaps your hand to someone who needs it to get back up. Although sobriety is something that each have to accomplish alone- the support of others can be what helps each of us stay there.
Blessed are each who can survive their disease to tell their story.. Blessed are those who have the support of people who care about what they are trying to accomplish. Blessed are those who had someone care enough to step in and say stop-no more-let me help you, when you were not in a position to help yourself. Blessed are those who decided to quit and fight everyday with their choice to stay sober.
Twist and Turn-Scream and Shout...Thank God I was given the chance to see what this life is all about.

One more hit, One more time-If I keep going will I survive?
It's time-to find my way home
Twist and turn, can you feel the burn?
Twist and turn, it's now your turn.
I know this is wrong, but for awhile it seemed so right.
It’s the only place I found to get through the darkness of the night.
I pray to God to please save me,
Save me from who I don’t want to be.
I can’t stop and I can’t breathe.
What I need is now my disease.
One more line, one more shot
If I keep on going will this loneliness stop?
One more hit, one more time,
If I keep on going, will I survive?
I lost myself when I was looking the other way
No one noticed I was gone until I was past my boundaries for the day
Feel the pain dissipate.
Feel my fears deteriorate.
Life is cruel- I am wrong.
The pain is deep and lasts too long.
I pray to God to save me.
From whom I have become.
Please don’t leave.
I’m scared to be alone.
Can anyone hear me-?
I can’t find my way back home.
Twist and turn I lost myself.
Twist and turn I am now someone else.
I saw my reflection,
That girl isn’t me.
I saw my reflection of who I don’t want to be.
I can’t stop,
I can’t breathe,
What I need has become my disease.
Take it in.
Feel it drip.
Feel it drain- Feel no pain.
I take a sip-I swallow it down,
And as I swallow I hit the ground.
I know what is wrong-I know I am not right,
But I am afraid of tomorrow and I can lose myself tonight.
Screaming so loud within my head.
Screaming so loud I pray for death.
Please someone see me-for who I can be.
Please someone save me before I bleed.
Shiver and shake-let it all out,
Shiver and shout- until I finally pass out.
Please don’t leave me,
I am so scared.
Please don’t leave me.
I know I've created this hell.
Will it get better- will the pain stop?
Without the drain-I feel what I am not.
Squeeze myself-I am alone.
This is my time to find my way back home.
Through the tears and screams,
I think I see something more-
I see a glimpse of Me?
It's been so long since I've seen her.
Close my eyes so I don’t see.
Close my eyes and lose my reality.
Shiver and Shake, I found me
Shiver and Shake----and then I feel my release.
