What Addicts Do


My name's Jon. I'm an addict. And this is what addicts do. You cannot nor will not change my behavior. You cannot make me treat you better, let alone with any respect.

My behavior cannot and will not change until I make a decision to stop using/drinking and follow it up with a plan of action.


This is the hardest thing for those who love alcoholics/addicts to comprehend - nothing can be done to make someone change until he or she has made that decision.

Hi Brenda,


I need to just keep soaking up the good advice from you and others who have posted here; but there has been so much drama today that I'm being sucked right into it again.

Even before I read your last post, I had reread your other posts to strengthen me not to offer financial help.

I've seen this posted on the boards many times and I'm so glad, because every time I see it, someone get's something tremendous out of it.
