For the Love of Alex
by J.E. Hopkins
"I have never taken an illegal drug in my life, yet drugs have taken away so much of my life. They have left me raw and alone. They’ve broken my heart, crushed my spirit, seized my light, and blinded me with darkness. Drugs have left me in pieces that no longer fit together. This is what it feels like to love an addict. This is what it feels like when an addict loves his drugs more than you."
