My Addiction to Drugs
I'm 42 and got my own house now and four beautiful children. I grew up in a house where my mother and uncles were either on drugs or drinkers. Of course I became one myself. To make a long story short, I finally decided that I wanted to change, so I went to a program called DAYTOP VILLAGE which helped me open my eyes to a life without drugs. I remember days when I had sold myself short. I look back sometimes and see that I played myself. I would never wanna be there today for nothing. I've been clean since APRIL 1998. Thank you for letting me put some of my thoughts on your page.
