Kendall F. Person on Addiction: “A gale force wind blowing through the hole in your soul”

Raising Healthy Children in an Alcoholic Home

“You never know when that addict in your life may need your hope, because they have none of their own, always leaving them inches away from giving up.”

This is a compelling post that describes the ravages of addiction from the inside out.  Mr. Person says it is not possible to describe hitting bottom to someone who has not experienced it, but perhaps he comes as close as anyone can with his eloquent account of his own experience as a “gale force wind…blowing through the hole in (my) soul.” 

For family members and professional helpers who may sometimes feel that nothing they do matters, Mr. Person also speaks  movingly of  the hope engendered by the  continued presence and persistence of those who loved him, and how this hope enabled him to move forward.
