Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People

    I think I've finally decided

    that I'm okay being a functioning meth addict and that I just don't care if I quit anymore. How the hell did that happen?

    Well I was until 12 years ago.

    That's when I got clean and began the arduous process of recovery. Man, was that a long hard road. The most difficult thing I have ever done in my life is to get free from from cystal meth. It is also the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. I now have peace of mind...

    I Was A Meth Addict... But It No Longer Defines Me!

    I am on the path of recovery. And there are many paths, mine may be similar to yours. It may not be. I got clean and sober, because when I was arrested, my son was put into Child Protective Services. I could have lied to the cop, told him I didn't use. But I didn't I told him the...

    Attention. Do not try to talk to

    or be friends with the user love2tryalot. She's a terrible person and a *****. She will message you back if you message her and then she will block you afterwards for no reason. And she's a fake person. Her profile is fake. Do not trust this *****.
