1 YEAR!!Today marks me being 1 year sober from heroine and Oxy (and all other drugs/alcohol) pic on the left is the wild me and the pic on the right is of today. these drugs had me so captivated and trapped for so many years I never knew how I would ever get clean. it got to a point where I accepted that I would prob be an addict for the rest of my life and that’s just how it would be. Growing up I never in a million years would have thought that when I grew up I would struggle with a drug addiction. I mean I remember hating people who used drugs or did things like that. But being an addict has taught me so many amazing things in my life. Especially with how I look at other humans! I learned that no matter what people are gonna go through hard things which could be a death of a loved one, divorce, addiction, obesity, mental illness and so many more. And it just made me realize I have no room to judge or look down upon any of them but to be there for anyone who is having a hard time and just needs someone to be kind and be there for them. After loosing everything I loved and had. I was stuck with the option that I really didn’t want to be here on earth anymore. I felt that I was a burden to everyone and had no benefits or could ever do good. I remember saying a prayer asking God that I needed help and I needed something to happen. And sure enough I was given an opportunity from a cousin who reached out who allowed me to live with him and attend a rehab absolutely out of nowhere to. Not to mention I just got kicked out of my first rehab.
After getting out of a very dark place and realizing that I actually do have value to this world it made sense to give this life another try. And boy am I so thankful I did!!! 😊
I truly could not have done this with out the help of my family and finding my relationship back with God. So many people could have just gave up on me and not stuck around for all my bull crap I put people through but they chose to stay by my side and it truly helped me more than any of them will ever know. I can never repay those who helped me through this journey I am so blessed with all people who taught me things that I will never forget. Thank yo
