14 Years of Hell
By the time I was 19, I had 17 felonies and had OD'ed more times than I could count. I had become an IV drug user. I got pregnant at 19, kept using, got pregnant again at 24, kept using, was a horrible mother and person. I hated myself.
Finally, I went to a meeting and got a white keytag. I detoxed at a friends house for a week. I got a sponsor, worked the program, got involved. My life is amazing now. I'm a good mom, I'm going to medical school, have real friends and I'm happy. It's been hard, but worth it.
You don't have to live in hell ever again. I know. I was there. Now I never have to be again.
