My Tribute: My beautiful mother who struggled with some sort of addiction her entire adult life. She had about 10 good sober years, or at least without any hardcore drugs. She was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and prescribed pain killers which was a gateway back into everything she had worked so hard to get away from. In her final days it was snorting Oxycontin that caused her demise. She was my mother and I love her and miss her more than I could ever describe. Please, if you struggle with addiction know that you are worth fighting for!
