Often I have heard a person has to WANT to be clean. A person has to want to be free of drugs and alcohol to be able to successfully kick their habits. Is this the only truth or is more involved? I got to thinking that often a person gets so lost in their world of drugs or alcohol abuse that the only thing they ever really seem to want is their next fix. Sometimes it feels like the husband , wife, friend or relative has to be the one who wants badly to save that person and not give up on them. I am that friend and relative. Must they want it more than I do?
