    Well, the dog did probably have a bath more recently than the girlfriend.

    The more I think about the dog issue, the angrier I get! The parents were very wrong to hand over that poor dog. I agree that he would sell that dog for beer quicker than we can blink. Did you see how happy that sweet dog was when he saw Kelly? For just a moment, I thought he would change. I would love to give it a real home.
    Reference cutting: I think it's a lot more common than you think. I've seen quite a few blogs from young people on it. It's just that it's not talked about near as much as the more common addictions.

He may have done the treatment and the agreement was treatment/dog, but hey he lies too. this whole show was screwed up. punk ass.

And I can't say it's going to help her recovery to have everyone implying that she's weird even as an addict.
    I am so with you on this one. I hope that Tamera has a good support system of people that not only love her but understand her so help her through when people make comments like this. Feeling like a weird-o isnít gonna help her rebuild her life.

Right now I'm trying to quit on my own. Went almost a year and then had a bender seven weeks ago. My husband knows about the problem, too, but no one else, so I have to hide my legs at the moment.
    I started cutting when I was 19 (20 years ago) and I did other physically painful things to my body from the time I was about 9. In elementary school I pulled out strands of my hair and wrapped them around my fingers at the knuckle until my fingers turned blue and I peeled the skin off. I punched things until my hands hurt. I bit my fingernails and bit off the skin around my fingernails. I burned myself sometimes. Etc.

    When I started cutting I was trying to quit drinking, smoking and using and I had 10 months sober. I had never heard of cutting before and I really scared myself. I didnít tell anyone that I was cutting. I just ended my sobriety.

    Maybe if your sister is ready to quit you could do it together.

    Tameraís parents made me sad. They care about her and they donít know how to help her. Anyone with a dependency knows that Tamera already feels guilty. Iím just glad they got her some help.

    She lives in Montana (she goes to school there) and I live in Georgia, so we don't see each other a lot. Plus, after the initial admission, neither of us have really talked about it. Not sure why...just seems awkward.

    About Tamara's parents: I get where you're coming from. I'm sure they do love her or they wouldn't have arranged the intervention. It just really upsets me when religious people act like EVERYTHING on earth can be cure by a good dose of the Bible....my mother was that way and really all it did was make me hide things from her more. For a child who has been molested and has feelings of guilt and self-hatred from the incident, the suggestion that cutting is a sin is really counter-productive. I understand they were coming from a place of love when making it...I just believe that they should have thought twice before making it.

    more shows ?

    Greetings!

    Great comments... I, too, am 'addicted' to the show and can't wait for more episodes.
    Which bodes my question:
    Has anyone heard or read anything about new episodes or a new season? Has the show been 'picked up' for a second season?

    thanks

    Eden
