(4/4) -It's the what ifs that can kill. With plenty of regrets you can dwell on what could've been done different. But the only way things can be changed, is by changing the future.-
"I was a single parent from when my son was 5-20. He's about 40 now. I knew things had to change. My addiction killed almost everything I had. Lost all my money and even a relationship with my son. Later I discovered that what was killing me wasn't the crack. It was my attitude. So in '87 I put the pipe down."
Becoming clean can be one the most difficult tasks to accomplish. The fact that someone accomplished that says more about them than how they got addicted in the first place.
"What's the one thing you would say to your son if he saw your story?" "My difficulties in life were no excuse to not be a dad. But I can't go back and change that. I can only say that I've always loved you, and that will remain the same."
