Its Hard Not to Be

Its difficult not to do drugs, if i see drugs. especially for a male who has been doing drugs since the end of high school. i cant stop, and may never stop. as it is, i mooch off everyone. i cant hold a job, i cant do anything right. i'm a loser.

You can still do drugs and function.....or can you?

If I can do it so can you. You have written my story word for word. I sought help and got it. I had to change everything I was doing and it was hard but so very worth it. I am now clean and sober. Life is manageable now and peacefull. Please dont give up on yourself. You are not a loser you are sick. If you had cancer you would get treatment for it wouldnt you? So get the treatment you need to put your disease in remission. Please dont give up!

I feel the excact same way. If i knew 10 years ago what i know now i never wouldve touched a drug. But i cant fix the damage its done to my life.

where are you living... you should spend time with us! my hubby is a recovering drug addict. he can help!

Where are you located? I can recommend for example a free treatment program in nor cal.

You are not a loser. You just have a problem. And you are not alone. If you don't like how things are, change them. If you really want to change your life you can. If you can't resist drugs when you are around them you need to stay away from situations and people that put you around them. It will be hard, but it will be worth it to get your life back, won't it? I believe you can do it.
