I have been a addict for 15 + years and it all started with alcohol and weed. I got pregnant when I was 15 years old and after I had my daughter, that’s when the spiral down began. My boyfriends dad would smoke weed with me and his mom would drink with me. Well I had three more kids with my boyfriend and married him. After my fourth kid, is when my addiction reached its peak, because the place where my husband worked shut down and the place where I worked shut down. We had a lot nice things, but we started doing cocaine, pills and crack so we eventually sold everything we had to support our habit.
My kids didn’t really want to be around us and when I think of that today it makes me sad. I lost my bother, brother in law, three cousins and many friends to drugs.You think that would of made me stop but it just made me go harder. What did make me stop is children services getting involved. I had to make a choice and I chose my kids. I’m clean now, it’s been 140 days today and life has never been better. I take it one second, minute, hour and day at a time.
Great things happen everyday I am sober.My kids are happy. I’m starting to get my life back and I never want to go back to that time in my life again.
