I plan to share my story of real-life to be heard and to help continue with my sobriety. To help and enlighten other addicts, show them love and give them the knowledge that this is real life. Life can be very ugly, people die every day.
But we can change that and save ourselves, search for the beauty we haven't gotten the chance to experience or memories of such.

  Addiction is something no one should ever take for granted. Just as well as a penny, a towel, shoes, shower, food, bed, blanket. These are things that could very well be stripped from you because of your addiction if you do suffer from one. Maybe not the first year of even the fifth, but it is something very possible. The younger generation today are dying from these new street drugs that are out there, suffering from homelessness and settling for it because we don’t know our worth, punishing ourselves even more purposely because we believe we deserve it, gang activity because we search for any type of love from any type of person, and the new ways of administration we use to put the drugs into our bodies. I’m fighting for my life.. and I’ve only been sober since August 2, 2019. I’m hoping that in me writing this and sharing my story for those who could truly use it and benefit from it to know they are NOT alone, then I’m helping another. I’m also doing this to be heard…. Also hoping to find the root of MY problem that continues to suck me down in the hole I’ve built over the years. We all need to be heard and I know some amazing people that have let addiction, the drug consume their lives. I’m here to tell you we deserve more, we are strong, and we CAN change. It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be painful, and it’s going to take time. But you are worth it. I am worth it.
