Good morning Kim.. I'm so grateful that James made this decision. I do not think he had much more time in his active addiction. I feel good also knowing that James has been clean for 24 hours. To be honest I was getting frustrated and worried.. I have gotten to know him a lil and I knew he was still using but as you know we can do nothing as it has to come for within.. I'm relieved for you my sister as I know you too were reaching a point where it was becoming unbearable to support him while he was active. Please pass on my love and intense pride for his courage I have known it has been his desire to be clean but fear can be a mighty force.. I also send my prayers up for James for you and your whole family as you all deserve the man you once knew.. I will write you a pm a lil later today and it is good to see you out here ! love and very warm hugs letakos

Thanks Kathy, he knows this is his last chance. No more white knuckling it for a while then back to it. I think this place will showhim how to live a proper life again, he never really got something to replace the time he used up taking drugs. I think boredem was a real problem, he never really properly got back to remembering what it was like to live i the normal world. He has a determind mind about him this time. I know he went out the night before and said his goodbyes to it, I noticed but said nothing as he was leaving anyway I really hope he can do this. I half expected him home saying he couldnt do it but no way he says, hes going to sort this once and for all. Ill talk to yo soon. Love ya Kim x.

Hi Sara, there were more msgs when i posted lol. Hes in Leith Links Project. Im only allowed 1 visit a week just now. Because im not usinng i can take him out for an hour after the first 2 weeks, but he gets tested as soon as he walks back in the door and if its dirty, hes out, no chances here. I think ill be involved at the meetings later on in his recovery. Frank saidits going to take a while but he seemsdetermind to do it. Thanks for your msg Kim xx
Ah Letakos, you are right i couldnt take anymore off the on, off, knowing he was straight then knowing hed had something. He knew that i was serious. He has to get everything out or it will always come back to haunt him and that was the only way he knew how to cope, he has to relearn all his thinking, they bring you down then build you back up, which in James case could take a while, he has that much baggage as some of us know. Im so glad i have all of you to help both of us as i know its going to get tough. Ill speak to yo soon, so glad to speak to you my sister. Loads of love and hugs coming at ya Kim x

I am so proud of my man 2nd day in rehab. I thought he would have ran by now,so he must want to change his drug taking ways. I spoke to him for 5 mins today but hes real dope sick. But Frank says he has never seen someone as  determind as James to kick his habit, he has also been attending the n/a meeting,s in rehab. When i spoke to James today he was in tears and said after this detox no more as the next will kill him. Im sorry for going on but im so proud of him. Letakos he says hi to his sister and  thanks you  for the note and your mood it makes him know that other ppl want him to get this done once and for all. He looks forward to the day he can phone you clean.Warmly Kim

Hi Kim.
I'm glad he's doin well. When he told me he was goin to rehab I had a feeling he had been using. I actually thought he might have slipped up befire that by the way he was talking  I knew exactly what he was going through because I have been there myself so that fact that he was still willing himself to be clean was a good sign to me. I myself wouldn't have kept posting here back then if it was me. I think he's done the best thing goin there. Its gonna be hard for both of you but the longer he is there the longer he has to get his head straight and realises how good life can be like without that s**t.
I truly hope he's ok and I know he can turn his life around! Keep us informed.
