I’m sorry for your loss. I know it’s tough, but this is not your fault, and you couldn’t have done anything to have prevented this. You did more than most people would, and I am sure you made a positive impact on her life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend. It must be incredibly hard but I am sure she was comforted throughout her whole life by having you as such a great support system. You were probably a great blessing to her in a life that was otherwise very hard and painful. We can only hope she is at peace now.

@Macsgirl14:  Try not to blame yourself. Changes have to come from within – no one can force you. We are all accountable for our own actions and decisions and no one else can make these hard choices for us.

I am sorry for your friend and sorry for your loss but please remember that it is not your fault.

@Macsgirl14:  Hugs.  I am so sorry.  There is not much you could have done to help her.  I am an addict with 10 years clean.  Please don’t feel like you should have done something.  Unfortunatley, with addiction most of us never truly get well.  It is just so sad that sometimes this is their only way to stop. 

If you need to talk, PM me.  I have a brother who is currently in this cycle.  It is not easy to be one of the ones they leave behind.  Again, I am so very sorry.

Sorry for your loss. Addiction is a disease. I grew up with two boys that lived on my street and watched them grow up. They both had addiction issues later on. The younger of the two passed away from a heroin overdose a few months ago, which makes me sick because I saw that little boy when he was so sweet and innocent in diapers. His passing turned his brothers life around, but i’m sure addiction will always be a part of him.

I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s so easy to wonder what more we could have done, but remember that it truly is a disease. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all who knew your friend.

@Macsgirl14:  Please don’t blame yourself.  Addiction grabs hold of a person so tight and ultimately, it has to be that person that pries himself/herself out of that situation.  Congrats to you for having the strength to turn away. RIP April.  Gone too soon.
