"Been there, Done that & MOVED ON"

"Been there, Done that & MOVED ON"

My story is long, but I will try to cut it short along the way.. I am an exheroin, cocaine-crack & whatever else I?could use to not necessarily stay high but to stay "well" or at least normal. ?I was 40 years old when I truly began using to the point of admitting I had a real drug problem. ?I was the Mother of 2 girls ?working and doing well. ?However, I never used drugs when I was around them, only when they were with their ?Father. ?Of course I smoked a little weed, ?drank a little beer and just had fun . ?It never interfered with my life. Until my whole life as I knew it was dramatically ?interrupted by the worst incident of my life . ?My fifteen yr old honor roll cheer leading daughter was abducted and found murdered . ?That's when the real drug use became out of control.. ?Not tight away about four years later I found that the so called meds I was given to deal with my severe depression numbed my feelings enough to work, get out of bed every day and try to fake being alive . ?I was so glad my oldest daughter of 19 was in college and on her own . ?More reason to stay drugged. ?Oh yes, I still thought I had controll even after shooting up heroin for the first time, or snorting coke to pick me up from the nodding effect. ?That was 15 years ago. My murdered daughters was not solved until three years ago . ?I am and have been sober now for 8 years after watching ?friends die and me ovetdosing to the point of dying myself... But today I am at total peace, contentment and as happy and caring for all those are still out there in that horrible way of living.. As my title says I have moved on it was a long road to travel but it's possible. Just ask me how I did it and I wil try to offer some ?sincere ways I did it ?YOU CAN TOO! ?Believe me I don't have all the answers but I do know it's possible and still takes an effort at times .. But it's well worth it
