I Am Pretty Proud of Myself

ok, so i just quit heroin about 6 months ago.  I have been doing really good until this last week.  For the last week, I have been doing coke.  and my life spiraled out of control so fast it was scary.  So I didn't do it last nite or the nite before.  Tonite, someone calls, says they have $8,600 and can't find any and if i find for them, they will hook me up all nite, AND I SAID NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HOLY ****!!!  i am so ******* proud of myself!!

That Is great! I have a friend who just started an outpatient rehab yestarday he is addicted to herion and pills. Do you have any advice on how i can be there for him and help him? i dont want to somer him i know he needs to recover and he his struggling but i dont want him to relapse or anything worse.
Thanks and you are very inspiring!

As a recovered Heroin and Cigerette addict, I can safely say Heroin is MUCH HARDER than cigerettes to quit.

Well done for nipping it in the bud. Keep on!

I'm pretty sure it is even worse than cigarettes...not sure what statistics say. That is absolutely amazing that you turned down that offer. I'm very proud of you! Congrats! You're awesome.

PS I'm very proud of you! Heroin is one of the worst to give up second only to cigarettes!

One thing I found that helped me the most was to change friends. I'm proud to say that I don't know anyone I knew when I was into drugs. I couldn't score some weed right now if I wanted it nor could I score speed, coke or anything else. I have very few friends these days but getting away from that element seems to be the step I needed to change my life.

Tis a rough ride , I hope ya have a lil pro help? NA or like that is invaluable . I know they are a pain, I know it's embarassing, I know your chances of being alive go up dramatically if ya doit. Tis tough but ya can doit.
