Interview With My Daughter

This week I got to interview my daughter.  

You’ve been hearing my experience of her addiction so I think that it’s important to hear what her experience was like as well.

Some of the things we talked about: 

· What was it like when I looked to you to be ok to make me feel better instead of me being stable for you?

· What else did I do that wasn’t helpful to you?

· What did I do that was helpful to you?

Is there anything I could have done differently to help you not struggle with addiction?

· What did you get out of using?

· What made you want to get sober?

· What has relapsing taught you?

· What makes you feel supported in sobriety?

I learned a few new things and had some realizations while listening to her insight and I ended up sharing some things I’ve never shared before.
