Lost to Heroin

Created by

Lost to Heroin

My son Aaron started using marijuana and alcohol when he was 15 years old. At that time I would punish him, like most parents, by taking away privaledges, etc. I felt he was a typical teen, and didn't take these things as particularly disturbing. It wasn't until he was in college did I realize how out-of-control his drug use had become. But, even then, I felt he would "grow out of it" or I could "love" him out of making such dangerous choices. After all, he was an intelligent, handsome young man from a loving family....and drug addiction didn't happen to families like ours!! NEVER would I have believed my son would use needles....NEVER would I have believed my son would use heroin! But he did, and he died.....only 23 years he is gone from me and I miss him every minute of every day.....

I too lost my son from pain pills. He was 30 YEARS OLD. So much to live for. He had two beautiful girls. Their mother now lives with a man that not only does pills buts drinks also. I feel your pain. Turn to our Lord and he will see you through this.
