    You speak the truth. We have done all that we can do. It's up to him and his relationship with God that will bring him through this crack nightmare.
    Thank you and please pray for him, us and all who feels the effects of this life destroying drug.

    GA, Thanks we can use all the prayers we can get. I feel for your friend. There are many families experiencing the effects of crack. We all need to pray for each other.

    Poetic, This was written by my heart, my pen was only a tool it used. I will continue to have faith, for it's all I have. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I'd like to add. My brother and I aren't close physically, but I know he loves me and I definitely love him. I just don't want to hear that knock on the door or get that phone call and every day I don't, gives me hope.

    Thank you both.

    drugs

    have fuked up a lot of talented people
    and it only destroys in the end

    and look at all time money being spent
    to numb reality

    hope he makes it - he needs to have hope and a way out

    Crackhead huh?....

    Sweety...
    when he is weak..you stay strong...
    and if he ever needs you...be their when its you he calls on.... People lives have different faces...
    sometimes they meet in different places....
    Saddens your soul to see his pain....
    Brighten his heart to find some free cocaine...
    When he is weak...you stay strong...
    And remember to be their...when its you he calls on....

    I have an uncle like this but we were never close..and i have never seen him in that way... He's been crazy since the day we were born... But we don't hurt...we love him the way he is. We accepted his decision in life as a man and moved on with our own...My family that is. Now he lives in Florida...left about 4 years ago.... I saw him that last time...He was walking (it was strange...cause all my siblings and my mother was with me...that usually doesn't happen) My older brother didn't really live with me...anyways...we picked him up and he tried to talk my brothers into steeling my moms car and driving down to Floriday. :D Don't ask me...(just know that where i'm from by the time you hit 21 and you aint' left my small hick town..then you aint' going nowhere and he was labeled crazy so who would've thought that a few months later my uncle ends up missing only find him a couple months later because a police station called my sick grandfather saying that the have him held here for bail. He Granddad went and got him but he refused to come back. He came up for a visit during this past thanksgiving...i didn't make it home that year. But everyone says he looks good...got an old lady down their and said he was pretty happy. Girl...just give him time...in his own time. Now i don't know if my uncle is still doing his thing...but hey that's who he is...I have no reason to change him for the world. That his life. And you know what I think...I think your brother will be just fine. i guess I've seen a few crackheads in my day.

    Just Remember:
    When he is weak...you stay strong...
    And remember to be their...when its you he calls on....

    I love you sweety...just like you were a part of my family....

    So'ja, You are so right about that. I hope I have enough hope for the both of us. Thanks for the read. Your Lady So'ja:)

    Shaneak, You'll never imagine how much your words mean to me and I'll remember them when he becomes weak. My best friend his ex girlfriend who still loves him, thought my title was cold. I thought so too at first, but as I thought on it more. I came to the conclusion that it's the truth. It's often our love for our love ones that keeps us in denial. I'm nolonger in denial, I acknowledge his problem and I'm ready to deal with it. By God's grace we'll overcome it. Thank you so much for your support and loving words.

    I definately feel you. My best friend does crack. Unfortunately he chose drugs over me. I wish he could see. The pain I, family, and friends go through. I told someone in order to get him help. But the drugs won the battle. Hopefully he will win the war. Stay strong I know it is very hard especially when it comes down to someone you love so much.
