Well its a tough question, but the first thing that popped into my head was Eli, my nephew. The first thing I ever said to him was 'i promise I won't let anything hurt you' and fast forward a few years when I was inpatient he said to me, 'i love you, please don't die' that hurt me a lot, he was only 3 and he knew if i carried on the way i was I would of ended up dead, i still remember the fear in his eyes. It was a big wake-up call, I promised I wouldn't let anything hurt him, but I was the one hurting him the most. Whenever I think about relapsing or giving up, I think of him, I can't go back.
