Stories of parenting, insanity and addiction
Hi TraceyJust wanted to say that I have watched the documentary a number of times now and it is beyond wonderful how you have turned your life around. Found your blog only tonight and am enjoying reading all your entries.Best wishes to you and the children, Jenny in London
Thank you so much :)
Hi Tracey!I'm a 21-yearold girl from Sweden and I just wanted to say.. I watched 'Black tar heroin' for the first time, a few days ago... and. It just broke my heart. It is sad to see that life can be so tough for some people and I am so happy that you are writing in this blog. I'll be spreading the link in my blog and I also wrote a short review on the documentary.You show the addicts out there that there is still hope.. No matter how dark the road ahead of you seems - you can always find that small piece of light at the end. Thank you.
Thank you so much and thank you for reading. I'm finding out from many of my international friends that there are few alternatives for addicts outside the United States and even in parts of this country. I am trying to provide some hope
You are a truly inspiring human being! Best wishes to you and your family :)

Hi Tracy. Thank you for being such an inspiration and making such a sacrifice to help others. Sharing your story demonstrated such strength I really appreciate it. I am an addict still. I stopped shooting 6 months ago I smoke h now but never get high. Getting ready to go back to the M clinic. It works well for me. My heart really also went out to Oreo because he reminded me so much of my best friend when I was on the streets. I know he wants to remain private, but I hope he's OK.
Hi Tracy. I really like how you are so open with suboxone and methadone. Methadone has been the only way I got clean. You seem like a beautiful person inside and out and made a sacrifice of privacy and risk of judgement and by doing so touched so many lives. Can you share anything about Oreo because I really adored him he reminded me of my best friend I had who's still on the streets today.
he is married, living a quiet life.
Thank you for helping so many people with your personal experience. My son, 25 years old and his girlfriend are getting ready to leave their 7 month rehab. They were there for heroin addiction. In your opinion would seeing the BTH documentary help them with their recovery or give them urges to relapse? I'm so scared for them..
