When you have been through the highs and lows of addiction with a family member, is it okay to walk away? Sometimes, I fear going to their funeral and I would blame myself for not being there every second of the way to recovery. However, is it okay to agree that some do not want recovery? I have sacrificed so much to build them up to who they once were, I have began to lose hope when they turn back time by using over and over again. Would walking away from there sorrow help them or hurt them?
