Irish boy stuck in addiction

by michael
(ireland)

My name is Mick I am in Ireland am 38 years old and have been in addiction to heroin for 11 years now. I am still trying to get away from this power that hunts my every day in the night.

I have seen some very close mates die around me from it. But still it’s there calling on me. I got clean a few times the longest been 9 months. But yet again I slip back. I hope with the help of God soon I will get this out of my life.

I guess my life growing up was not all that good. Ireland is not all green grass lovely hills and valleys. Jail at a young age 17 and a dad soon after. Drink then drugs all the way from weed, speed, coke, then smack/ aka heroin.

This is my first time trying to put down in words how I feel and I hope for me and the many more like me that some day or night our lives can get back on the right side and the sun will bring a smile and life on our faces again. We can do it, God bless all don’t give up your worth it.
