I am 33yrs old and 9yrs clean. It started with my first marriage, my ex wife's father was a dealer so it wasn't hard to get anything. At first it was pills then it was crack, I went from trading possessions and stealing things to trade to get a fix. Lost my job. After a while i had enough of that life i asked my parents for help, i moved to texas for a year and lived with my brother to get away from it. Moved back, got married. I got my job back started fresh. Came home early from work and Caught my wife sleeping with another man. Went to jail for almost killing him with a brick, luckily i only i only got 3 yrs probation, got divorced. Then i started drinking alcohol for a long time til i blacked out regularly, lost all hope went to jail again was placed on suicide watch. Got out the next day. Met a guy i worked with and he introduced me to cocaine, pills, crystal. Was an everyday habit from the time i woke up til it was time to go to work. Went back to court had to serve community service for 30 days. Was spending most of my paycheck on drugs. Pushed alot of good friends away. Lost respect. So i moved outta town. Got my mind clear. And said enough is enough. Started out fresh again, met someone special, she had a son. Now im married have 2 boys and a house. Never once slipped in 9yrs recovery and i hardly drink.
