    Davienna I saw the title "Doomed" and rushed to the thread to quickly say I hardly think anyone out there is truly doomed...then I paused and checked the meaning to be sure and I still feel the same way. I don't believe your father can't ever escape from the clutches of his addiction even after twenty years. I believe like Smarty he first needs to recognize he needs help. Don't give up on him. Do what you can to help him and when you have done all you can no one can ask for more. I remain optimistic as dark as it may appear.

    I know a lot of people that won over their addition and that wasn't until they decided that it was time for a change, i wont say your father is doomed but his chances are very slim, i would advice that you pray for him and continue to encourage him to turn his left around it would also be nice if he had a group to attend with other drug addict that want to turn their life around so he can see the he is not alone and can relate to someone else story.
