The House For Addiction

I've been telling on my posts that I am a blog addict and I know somehow I do. But should I think of finding a rehabilitation center for my blog addiction?

I can still remember my high school friend began running away from home when she was 16 years old. The first time she was gone for one of day, her family was on panic. I will never forgot my fear and the phone calls from her parents, desperate with worries. By the time my friend was 20, she was in impoverished neighborhood, addicted to drugs and selling sex to survive. Tens years later, my worst fears were realized when my friend found in one corner, just a few step away from our house, lying on the ground and not breathing anymore. My friend lived in a miserable atmosphere at home where her father have two daughters from different women. She can always caught her mother cheating with another man, whenever her father wasn't at home. I saw her misery during her teenage life . I felt were the forces that kept her from her family and this normal life. I wished I've done more than just being there to listen to my friend but I was so young and carefree at that time and don't know much.
