    My Addiction Pattern

    My addiction pattern started with drinking then led to drugs of all sorts' uppers and downers. When I was using I preferred uppers though. Then I found Crystal Meth. Which at first I thought I had found my best friend. I used Crystal Meth for 5-6 months straight and I remember looking at this website when I was all fricked up all the time. I read the stories and looked at the pictures and I cried, because I never thought I would be normal again. But I finally hit my low and went to Detox and Day Treatment at Addiction Services and I am regularly attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings. I have been involving myself in NA and have a sponsor! I changed my playmates, play places and playthings. I have found a lot of new clean and sober friends in the NA fellowship. My life has done a total and unbelievable turn around. I have been clean for 40 days today and haven't had any desire to go back to the chaos and insanity of my life on drugs. Even when you think that you can never be the way you were before the drugs know that there is help and hope out there. I have never been so grateful and truly happy. It isn't easy but it is very worth it. Take it one day at a time.
