For many addicts, this is the worst time of the year. Their heads are filled with thoughts of those they had lost because of their addictions. However, you must always keep in mind... as long as we breath, there is hope. Around this time of year I usually tell people "Make a Christmas Card for everyone you've lost. Express your hope of reconciliation but do not express expectations of it. Keep it simple and let them know that they are always in your heart." Strangely enough... this worked for quite a few of them. One thing it did was it made them feel a little better because they got to express what was in their heart on the manner. Another thing is that some of them reconciled with the person because it touched that person enough to get them to speak with them. It is not 100%, but seems to help. Happy Turkey Day!!!!!!! Love to you all!
