ADDICTION-FEEDING THE NEED It could not happen to me or my family Thats what everyone thinks There are many different types of addictions and whether it be drug alcohol cigarettes gambling spending food or sex they all have basically the same self-destructive tendencies Drug addiction can go unnoticed at first There are a few slight clues but you just put them together He comes home with his eyes open wide dry mouth and there is a noticeable twitch in his hands She had seen that twitch and those eyes before but dismisses it as his fatigue since he had not been sleeping much lately He is gone again but he will be back soon When he does come back home she notices the smell of alcohol and there is that twitch and dry mouth again She decides that it is time to ask if his old habit has come back He bolts out a firm No are you crazy Almost making her feel bad for asking She did not want to insult him She apologizes although deep down she knows She does not want to face it but the light comes on and there are more and more signs more time spent in the back room his sanctuary and more nights of staying up all night Then come the times when she has to call his work and tell his boss that he has the flu or something and cannot make it to work She retreats into her own world Trying desperately to keep the family together and at the same time trying not to let herself fall apart Every day is like the movie Groundhog Day She wakes up every morning at 545 gets ready for school gets her oldest kids up for school her youngest ones ready for daycare and her husband ready for work Then shes off She drops her kids of fat daycare and starts her forty-five minute drive to school
