    I was addicted to crack 10 years ago. It was very hard to quit, but I did it alone. took a while, but i did it. you have to be determined to quit, desperate to quit and have the strength to say no to the cravings that last for years. YEARS but she had to want it, wont do any good if she doesnt.

    All i can say is i've abused crack on and off from 18-I'm now 27. haven't used it in at least 2 yrs....... butI still have "crack dreams", and an occasional craving?(I liked Medical nitrous better?) it is pure and simple-EVIL! My thoughts and prayers will go out to you, as that s--- is the Devil's creation.
    It also seems you just chase and chase and chase and.........

    Thanks to all you good people for caring. I do believe it is the ultimate tool of the devil. I pray that all of you stay away from it & be strong!

    i'm afraid to say this, and i hope i'm wrong in your case, but she wont have much luck quitting unless she really wants to quit herself, or she is put in a situation like i was and couldnt get it. i hope everything turns out o.k. does she ever show any signs of wanting to drop this addiction??

    This is a smart person. with drugs like crack and meth, you must flee, you must remove your self from your old haunts.
    good answer nomoreopiatesihope

    She says she's not strong enough but the strange thing I find is years ago when she was young & on it she didn't care about anyone me her kids nobody which I heard is the case with crack. This time although she says she isn't strong enough, If I talk to her or I have gotten a letter once in awhile is is so sorry for what she is doing to us & it seems very important to her to let me know she is still a good person. She sd things like I still take a shower & don't protitute (which I heard lately has changed) but this time on crack she seems to have more feelings. My other daughter is going to go see her w/her husband & another man sd she just wants to hug her & say she loves her, it's a real bad area I hope they'll be ok.
