. .Nobody wakes up one day and says to themselves, I'm going to become an addict...

Addiction runs high in my family, yes I said it. I have people in my family that are, and were addicts. My dad and brother were both alcoholics. I really can't remember, but I don't think they had a drug problem at least my dad didn't. My mom on the other hand loved her pills, and whatever other drug she could get. She loved her drugs so much, that her 11yr old daughter had to call 911 on her more than one time much just because, she couldn't get her mom to wake up. I think the scariest time she had overdosed on pills when I was 11 (I think). My sister was big and pregnant with her youngest son. I can remember it like it was just yesterday. I got woke up by my grandpa, saying that uncle wanted me to come to the hospital to visit someone. You know, being 11 you think it's just some friend of his. He wanted you to visit no big deal right WRONG!! My grandpa woke me up about half-way there, and I just looked up, and then something just came over me. I started praying right then and there, please don't let that be my mom. We pull up behind the hospital by the emergency room, I see my sister come out holding my mom's purse, then I see my uncle. They both get in the car. I don't even remember what they told me. But I flipped out, and then I must've blacked out or something. Because, the next thing I remember, I was waking up pulling into the hospital. The sign in the ICU waiting room, says no one under the age of 13. But, me only being 11, I was kinda upset. But under the circumstances they let me go back. I remember walking down a never ending hallway, and finally reaching her room. I saw machines, hoses, wires and tubes. There was a tube down her throat, and her hands strapped down. That has to be one of the scariest thing a child would ever have to see. No child should ever have to see his or her parent like that. We got told that she coded 4 times, before they even left the hospital. No child should ever have to come home, after a weekend at their dads saying daddy drinks cough syrup. No child should have to be afraid of their own brother because you're afraid he might hurt you if he gets mad enough. I could tell you stories about my mom, my dad, and my brother. Addiction is real, my dad was drunk for years and years of his life. Did he do any kind of pills or hard drugs? I honestly don't know. He was in and out of my life. My mom left him when I was 2 years old. She got tired of the abuse towards her, my sister, and my brother. She moved us in with the greatest man alive my uncle. He didn't have to take us in, he didn't have to help. Who is gonna want to raise three kids? The only kid experience he had been, my sister and my brother. They're 13-15 (I think anyways.) But anyways before this story goes the other way back to addicts. My dad was married six times out of those six times I met a wonderful step mom. They're names are L. They're was this one time I remember, my dad was drunk. We got into a huge fight, that ended up with me crying. Calling my mom to come get me. I remember someone said that I needed to apologize to my dad. No, I'm not going to apologize for anything. But he just wants to make everyone else out to be liars, even his own family. That's what alcoholism will do to you, turn you against your own family. My brother was an alcoholic, I knew he had done hard drugs before, but I wasn't sure of what kind. I can't say that he's never had a drug problem. He was on his drug of choice was from that day. My wonderful mom, which she really was wonderful in the right time and right place. Her drug of choice was pills. She didn't care what kinds of pills they were as long as they got you high. I never seen or really talked about it if she did any other drug which I'm pretty positive she did. My mom wasn't the worlds the greatest mother but again she wasn't the shittiest mom in the world either.
