An Interview with Ron

A fellow blogger asked me earlier in the week if I would interview with him. I absolutely love his blog and have read his other interviews, so when he asked I immediately said yes. Then he told me what he wanted to talk with me about: my previous addiction to heroin. Gulp! I didn't have to think about it long though, I knew that Ron would do an outstanding job! He is respectful, funny, sarcastic and has this amazing way to make me laugh and think at the same time!
We discussed addiction and both know that people have misconceptions about what/who addicts are, together we hope that this interview will shed some light on the subject. Feel free to comment both here and on Ron's blog, and without further ado, I give you Ron from vent ...


  1. Wonderful interview over at Ron's were very brave to tell your story. I sincerely hope it can help others by showing that it doesn't have to take over your life forever!
    Missed seeing you over at my place-

  2. I can't wait to get over there.
    Headed there now!

    (also, I love Ron!)

  3. Kathryn,
    Thank you so much for reading my story. I also hope that it can help others. The best thing I could have ever done for me was take my life back and I did it. Anyone who is willing to do some hard work and soul searching can do it but the decision must be made and you can't have ANY excuses to use anymore! No matter what happens in my life I cannot hide behind drugs, I have got to cope and deal with things head on without dope. Thanks for commenting!

  4. Lora,
    Yes yes I love Ron too! I was flatered when he asked to interview me. I never think I have anything to say, so I struggle with writing my posts but I felt that I just had to do this. I can only hope that someone who is struggling comes past it and takes it to heart. I wouldn't wish a drug addiction onto my worst enemy; there is nothing more heart wrenching to me than watching someone being controlled by drugs. I wish that I had the ability to save everyone but that's just not possible, but wouldn't it be nice?

    Thanks so much!

  5. Thank you again for sharing this interview with me - I had a blast!

    It's an honor to know ya!

    You GO, girl!


  6. I think that everyone can be touched by reading a story of addiction when they see the addict as a real person.

    So many people (and I've been guilty too) can only see someone according to their labels. That has to stop. And it can when we can all realize that everyone is just as human as everyone else.

    Also, I typoed "labia" where "labels" is.

  7. Thank you for sharing your truths.

    *sending wishes for continued blessings*

  8. the 'gulp' wasn't necessary was it?
    your interview was wonderful
    and from the post above about your mom and laughing I feel like I already know you - and like you

    hope Mom is feeling better

    so lovely to meet ya

  9. Lora,
    Yes please let us not stop the labias!

  10. Mel,
    Thank you so much for your blessings, that means a lot to me. I hope that together Ron and I are getting hope out there! Everyone can always use a little bit of that in their lives!

  11. Dianne
    I'll be sure to stop over your place soon, I'm sure that I'll like you too! and no I guess the gulp wasn't really necessary, that's just my defense mechanism coming out, make light of something that truly means alot so that when people hate it you can laugh it off! Hey I'm still a work in progress!

  12. Great interview! Commented over on Ron's blog.

  13. Ron, No thank you my friend the pleasure is definately all mine! Great reactions huh?

  14. You bet! I knew your words/story would "touch" everyone.
