    I think you need to slowly get off of it. Find someone you really trust and tell them about your secret. Let them help you get over your addiction. I've never been addicted to any drug, but I think I kind of understand how you feel. Good luck on you journey to quitting. Don't forget to put all that money you would have spent on crack in a bank account for retirement. Once again, good luck.

    There are no easy ways out when in the spot you are in. When I was there I found the local Narcotics Anonymous meetings and staerted going on a regular basis. All of a sudden I realized there are thousands of people doing what I'm doing and who want to stop. They found a way to feel good about themselves again. And the only requirement for membership is the desire to stop living the way you're living! WOW! They didin't force anything on me. I figured, if these addicts can live happy lives so can I. And it's ok to still be on drugs while attending meetings. And they're not a bunch of Bible-thumpers either. My own higher power I created is meaningful to me and that's all that matters. And the steps didin't kill me. I'm happier today and financially secure.

    Maybe you should organize an intervention for yourself. There's always tons of free help all over the place. Please get better.

    By "ending it all" you mean suicide - don't. Stick around and see how your life turns out. My son once considered his life worthless and planned to end all his troubles. That was in 1998. Today he's alive and well. Read his story.

    I too am successful in life but hold a secret, i have been addicted to heroin for 13 years. Don't end it, get help. I have been suicidal and thought it my only way out of my addiction but it's not the only way out, i still use and i am currently seeking help as i've just found out i'm preggers. If you are only using once a week then thats preety good self control don't you think. My dealers got locked up when i was using once a week now i've found other, better dealers i'm using on a daily basis well i was till 2 days ago, now i'm on the methadone program and i hate it but i don't want to lose this baby. Life is so not easy, we all need to do something to get thru it and you chose your drug, i chose mine and people will judge us for that but the drugs aren't who we are they are just something we take to endure our pain. Forge on.

    Everyone is Addicted to Something, but Crack is probably taking your health. My daughters ex-bf's mother stroked out at a young age, her face droops and she still smokes it. It is just sad to me.

    Ok, I'm new here so please just listen.
    First off you have what many would only work their butts off to have. Second, you have identified a problem understand what is wrong with the picture. But are you actually willing to deal with why you use or even stop using. you remind me of the guy at the bar who only smokes when they drink. Which means if you really put your mind to it you can QUIT. But first be honest with yourself as to why your actually using. hope this helps
