My Mom's Addiction

My Mom's Addiction

As long as I can remember, my mom has been an addict. Before I was born, my mom always drank and smoked weed and cigarettes, along with other drugs. She became sober a little before I was born and stayed sober until I was five and my little sister was three, when she relapsed on alcohol, as far as I know.?My mom went away to a rehab center for 90 days and then she came home to my father, my sister, and me. At the beginning of December, she relapsed once again. She had been smoking weed, drinking alcohol, and attempted suicide. She took several bottles of pills and was taken away by EMTs. This was sudden; there was no sign that she was going to so that, and she became herself again. For everyone with addict parents- please do not feel upset and worried about approaching them on the topic if you feel it's neccessary. Do what's best for you and your loved ones

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
