I was supposed to put "second chances" as the title but I thought "what about 3rd chances, the 4th, 5th and many more chances?" Doesn't everyone deserve chances? Addict or not, we all deserve the chance to change and be forgiven for our wrongdoings. As long as we ask and seek for forgiveness and change, we deserve another chance. An addicted person, no matter how many times he/she falls should be given the many chances to try and try until he/she succeeds in recovering. No mockery, no judgement, just unlimited chances. That's all they can hold on to. If we don't give them that, where can they turn to? How can they push themselves up when we block their way by not giving them any chance? Let's give them that long and sturdy rope of "chance" and pull them up with our strong hands of "hope". When they're finally up from the lowly path of addiction, let's welcome them into their brand new world of sobriety.
