Tell us about Justin's struggle with addiction
Justin's addiction took us by surprise. It seemed as though one day he was different. I knew he drank and smoked pot; but I didn't realize he had gotten into pills. Those pills and pot, led to heroin. He went down fast and hard. The things he did are so sad to recall; but they did happen. Lying, stealing, and disrupting; as well as trouble with the law. We tried to get him help, but he wanted nothing to do with it most of the time. He did try very hard with NA, and he was so proud when he had an achievement. But, that devil always dragged him back in. Justin hated that he couldn't control his life. I fully believe there is no social or economic boundary to this killer called Heroin; or any drug for that matter!
What made Justin smile?
Family and friends made Justin smile. Also, little kids, animals and the outdoors. He loved cooking too. He loved hunting, kayaking and snowboarding.
What do you miss most about Justin?
"I miss Justin's love and smile. The sound of his voice and the way he said Mom... I miss every single solitary thing about him.... Everywhere I look I see Justin. What he was, what he wasn't, and what he never will be. The anguish and hurt has not yet subsided. They say it never will. I always thought a broken heart would heal, I must have been mistaken. This strikes me out of nowhere, with no boundaries and not a care... I feel alone in this sadness, with no one feeling; but all do Care. My memories are for a lifetime... Of his lifetime... Even though a lifetime He was sparred..."
