You don't need the pain, the anguish and the possible risk of death that comes with this type of relationship...death as in risk of Aids when they start acting out self-destructively as opposed to picking up the crack pipe then venting at a meeting where they get a cup of coffee and a pat on the back and told that the "Aliens" don't understand them. your father was an addict, then you got involved with one yourself for 4 years. did you ever stop to think about why you insisted on being a rescuer?
