Light of hope within darkness  

I got married at 1979 and after 2 months I realized that my husband is an addict; from that point my life became complicated. I loved my marriage so I continued living with him for about 10 years, then my son was born and we named him Omid. In these 10 years my husband got caught 3 times because of smoking Heroin and he was locked up at jail, I always went on visiting him with my little son and I hoped that one day we would have the life that I always dreamed of.

 

Alas anytime that he was out of jail he was using heroin again. I tried to make him quit, gradually I became disappointed. My marriage was gone so I went to my father house with Omid with a broken heart. I tried to be mother and a father to Omid and God helped me. I raised him until he became 22 years old. I was so happy but my destiny was twisted with addiction and this monster wouldn’t let go of me.

 

After some time I realized changes in Omid, these changes reminded me of the dark past which I had with my husband. He was using meth and opium.

 

I was so disappointed and was crying day and night. I insisted that he must visit a clinic or a NGO to quit addiction but soon I found out that I can’t force him to do so and he continued using narcotics.

 

One day one of my friends introduced congress 60 to me so I attended there and I spoke with Mr. Dezhakam. After attending a few sessions I found it hopeful and I saw a sparkle of light in my life. After a few months Omid attended Congress 60’s group therapy sessions and hopefully he will become revived from addiction soon. (Addiction treatment takes at least 11 months)

 

My dear friends now when I review my past and I think if congress 60 were established at those days maybe my husband could cure his addiction as well.

 

I wanted to thank our guides for their help in this treatment period.
