I over came a 10yr Meth Addiction

My story starts at the age 11 with smoking weed. My parents smoked it so why not were my thoughts. I went from pills to alcohol to rolls to acid to Meth by the age 16. I didn't realize that i was an addict by that age but now I see that I was. During the 10 years of being addicted to meth it really took a toll on my entire life. I never thought that I would end up being the kind of person I turned into. I was angry all the time denying I had a problem when confronted by family members. I didn't get to hide it for long because by the age of 19 I was charged with a felony for forging checks on my grandmother. Something I would have never done if I wasn't using Meth. I knew how to make meth by 19 years old as well, something that im not proud of, Meth took alot of time from me in and out of jail which didn't affected me as much as losing custody of my 4 children, my home, and the man I thought to have loved me an maybe he really did he just loved meth more. I have been clean for a year now an its because of the life recovery program I joined. I had been to rehab 3 times an it never really got to me, and the meetings would bother me sometimes not that it doesn't work for some, just not me. Which is weird because the Life Recovery program is a 12 step program. You just talk more about your feeling than your days of using. I am still trying to pull my life back together and its not easy. I want to find away to help others so why not start here. I beleive that if I help others its going to help me stay sober. Maybe one day i'll be reunited with my children. Til then Im going to keep on keeping on. God Bless
