Adambarlow are you being deliberately goady? I would assume OP loves her children but was suffering with addiction.
OP, do you cross paths with any of your addict 'friends' now? How do you manage?
Well done by the way, what you've achieved, and keep achieving every day is amazing

Well done op.
My cousin was an addict. He stole from my aunt and uncle and other people and we all thought he would die. Then he went to rehab and got sober and remained so for 12 years.
Then he had to have an operation and was given a morphine addiction which set him off again.
He managed to give up again by going back to NA meetings but he said it was much harder to stop the second time round.

Very stable life now. Went to uni in recovery, very stable job, working for the police. Had further children. Married to another recovering addict who is 15 years clean and sober. Eldest children suffered a lot. Foster care when I was in rehab. We have done slot of counselling, I have made amends and they forgive me. Both very stable. Went to uni, good jobs.

wow well done you!! For getting clean for you and your children, if i had one wish in the world it would be that my dad would do the same thing, but i doubt it he started ten years before i was born, i'm 20 now and he's still doing it, if i'm being honest i don't know how he's still alive, or how he still has people that care about him(myself included). You've done the most amazing thing for your children, when i was younger i used to think why won't my dad stop taking heroin and be a proper father? Your children can now see in you what i could never see in my dad, which is that you'd do anything for them, you should be so proud of yourself
