My Great Clean Life!!!

My Great Clean Life!!!

Hi- I'm Justin. I'm a 25 year old from New Jersey and I'm a recovering addict. I've been clean and sober for almost four months now. My life completely changed when I finally got treatment 3 months ago. It was the best thing to ever happen to me. I don't know where I'd be today if I never went and got help when I did. If you told me 4 months ago where I'd be today and told me that I wouldn't have to take something everyday to just feel normal, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. After I lost my fiance last year, I thought my life was over. I couldn't deal with life itself. All I could do was use to numb myself from the pain and loss I was feeling. But that wasn't the right way of dealing with life. I don't know why this happened to me but I needed a wake up call. I couldn't go on with the way I was living my life. It was killing my family and friends to see me like that. I've been clean for four months now-- I know I can do this.
