Temptation. It lurks everywhere. I'm learning to overcome the desire to cross over but it has taken so many years. I want to be a positive, productive individual. Not easy when you have a criminal background. All my education pretty much went down the tubes. I am currently working on expunging my record. All my charges are before 2003..I do love waiting tables and I am a great waitress. I just have so many other job skills and it's rather frustrating to know that "this" is it. My secret dreams, like many of us, is to get published. I have a story, I know how I want to tell it. Most stories regarding addiction are pretty much the same. I want to tell it from a family viewpoint. The roller-coaster ride we take everyone along with us. That is the part people don't understand. No one can take a hostage like we can. Even though it is my past I can still feel it and write about it like it was an hour ago. It has been a long wild ride and I still have my sanity ( that's questionable)lol. Just remember when you see a snake, even if it promises not to bite you, don't pick it up, it is still a snake...Peace..
