Dear Addict - Do you have an Addiction?

Do you have an addiction you are trying to break free from? The disease of addiction is far-reaching. Drugs, alcohol and many other addictions don't recognize cultural or racial lines. Addictions are monsters who don't stay confined to certain neighborhoods or to people in certain walks of life. They are very hard to break.

Come see a friend who is lifting herself out of that cycle. Associated Content writer Kimberly Gray has started a website for addicts and recovering addicts like herself at http://www.dearaddict.ca. On her blog, she lists many sources for help and tells her story. She has 20-20 insight into the characteristics of addiction and its pull to keep people in its clutches.

As a writing peer of Kimberly's, I've seen her writing come out of nearly total black darkness into a marvelous light, relying on several tools as well as depending on God through a version of the Serenity Prayer and accepting His "Amazing Grace."

But Kimberly realizes she will need to consider herself an addict for life; and there is no one better than someone who's been there to help you find the sources you need. Many avenues of help are listed at her website. Stop off at either one of the above links today, and find a friend in Kimberly Gray.

You are such a sweetheart for posting this for Kimberly. Hopefully she will gather troops of angels around her and everybody will rely on everybody else for support. (I called upon those troops all four times my son was in Iraq and every time he went to defend our country in this never-ending war – they are a mighty force.)

I know Kimberly and she is truly a fighter, a person who would give her left arm to help someone else. Who also knows that in order to get well one has to to it on their own but by reaching out you will never be alone..There is so much out there to help others. Good going Kimberly keep up the good work
