Life on the other side

Hi My name is Sheila,

I was addicted to drugs for about 17yrs. and it was a living nightmare. I had been some places, hung out with people, did some things that before drugs i would never belive i would have done. Now while i was out there i did not know that someone was watching over me. Although i did not consider myself a christian someone was praying for me. I was stealing from people, I did work most of the time but there would be long periods when i didn't. All my pay checks would go to drugs and treating who ever i was with at the time and then when people would not act right i started getting high by myself, which was worse. Well there is a lot to my story and i can't tell it all right now, but i have always wanted to tell my story to help someone else. There is a old saying that goes"If i can do it anyone can" It was not easy but it was well worth it. I now have over 13yrs Aug 25 each yr is another yr clean. I did not know how life was going to be when i got clean, and i was scared to find out but i am glad i took the chance and found out because it is GREAT!!!!!!!!
