updated Mar 24, 2017

This is a book about addiction, this book is written from three different perspectives.  The first is an addict's conversation with God, which I had submitted here earlier, the next is from the point of view for the addict themself, how to begin recovery when traditonal means do not work.  The third is from the point of view of the addict's family and friends, it entails what to expect from the addict and non traditional ways to help the addict begin to recover while at the same time trying to maintain your own life.

Why you do the things you do

I know how hard it is, and I wish I could be there There's so many times I wish I would have shown how much I care I know I've done some things that I really shouldn't have But if you look at the reasons why you'll see I'm really not that bad I did it for the money, when I didn't have a dime I never meant for it to turn into a life of crime I did it for the challenge, just to see if I really could I did it for the rush and no one thought I really would I did it when I needed recognition so I felt Did it when I had no friends and no one there to help I did it when I thought no one really cared I did it when it hurt so bad, the pain I couldn't bear In chaos and confusion, my world in disarray When I had no one to turn to, is when I went astray When I couldn't disappoint you, and was ashamed to show my face Is when I fell the furthest into my pit of disgrace When the loneliness and heartache inside me was so great That death or total numbness is the only means you can escape And within coping everyday, you lose all track of time Unable to find enough clarity to see you've crossed the line Inside your disillusions, where your sadness takes a hold And your life becomes such misery, you relinquish all control From outside it looks intentional, but its really slip and fall And suicide mission when you feel you've lost it all It's too much to remember and to painful to forget When you're trying so hard to hold on, but your fingers start to slip As you watch the things you want the most getting further from your grasp As the life you loved and were used to, so soon becomes your past As every day you're giving up a little piece of you The less they're able to understand why you do the things you do
