I Am a Recovering Heroin Addict

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 55 People

    I went through my senior year strung out on

    heroin. I somehow managed to graduate high school. I hardly remember anything from that year other than I was constantly sick, and dangerously bulimic. I broke my then girlfriend's heart. I broke my family completely. I will never forgive myself for what I did, somehow they...

    So I am a recovering heroin addict.

    I am in Cancun right now to get away from all the crap I was surrounding myself with and get a change of scenery. I'm weening off of subutex right now and I feel AMAZING! It's a great feeling to be sober and to have the opportunity to come to Cancun. How long I am going to stay...

    I started shooting heroin at 15

    and at that point I had already been addicted to pain killers (among other things) for two years. At times in my addiction I was using 30 bags a day. I struggled for five years in and out of the rooms, and jail, rehab, psych wards, and outpatients. I have 3 1/2 months clean now...

    It's like our minds are turning against our

    bodies. It wants to feel this way. It lies & says its good for my body. Cuz it feels good. But it's not good for me. When I want it, my mind lies. When I get what I want, my body loves it & my mind freaks out. Once it's gone, my mind wants more & my body tries to heal itself
