You don’t know how others will affect or impact your life, until you’re meant to know.
Today, I learned of a death of someone who had a huge effect and impact on my life and the memories came flying in. This person was the first person I met when I moved here to Pennsylvania and took me to go play beach volleyball at a local place that I played for over 10 years and some of the people are still in my life.
This person had an alcohol addiction during his life and recently fell. while recuperating they were detoxing at the same time then developed pneumonia and had a stroke. Oh, wow, what a hard, difficult way to leave earth.
ADDICTIONS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR SOCIAL STATUS
ADDICTIONS EFFECT EVERYONE FROM EVERY WALK OF LIFE
ADDICTIONS AFFECT YOU, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE POPULAR, FUNNY, CARING, SUPPORTIVE, EVERYONE'S FRIEND, HELPFUL, LOVING

YOU’RE NOT EXEMPT
A close person to me always said many people die from detoxing, it’s not easy, very difficult and doesn’t matter if the detox is from medicines, drinking, or something else.
Let this be a lesson, pay attention to your habits and not to allow these habits go on for any length of time. It will catch up with you and be a difficult hard life - get it under control now! Are you having mood swings, unhappy with you, blaming others for your life, you’re always right, depressed, snapping at others this is a beginning and get the help NOW…. GET IT TODAY, then detox one day at a time, and some days one moment at a time, trust me you don’t want to live this life, being successful or not is not a reflection who has issues!
It’s so hard to watch others have issues that affect you and your life, this means beer, wine, hard alcohol, pain killers, sleep medicines, illnesses and the list goes on… most of the time this is a want not a need to have in your life! Learn from others around you, most everyone has had a personal experience with watching someone else, and the difficulties, the dark paths it could take you and the eventual medical issues that will have the effects on you and others.
It’s obvious to me this person’s last few weeks here on earth were horrifically, painful. learn! you have choices today, right now! To make a difference on your life today.
These messages are for all of you and not targeting one of you, most of us have those addicted items in our household today, and in my opinion more than each of us should be mindful now, be aware and get the help now and make your own life easier.
So hard to watch and even harder for the person living it.
