The addict

by kellie

Hi,

My name is Kellie and I am 29 years old and I'm a heroin addict, I'd like to tell you about the love of my life.

My love of my life is there for me every day all day my love helps me when I'm sick or in a bad mood I put my love before anyone, myself, my family, job, friends, places, and things. I do everything for my love and then there's times my loves not there when i need it the most, when I'm sick or sad or hurt or alone because I put my love before myself or other loved ones.

The love of my life who I speak of today is heroin. I once was happy and loved myself more then the drug, but I would miss Christmas, if I couldn't get high I'd be late for my own birthday, I'd forget to help my dad when he needed me.

All I want in life is to get clean and make my family and not worry, so my mom can sleep at night and I want my dad to have his little girl back... Please put me in your prayers!

I will pray for you!

Dear Kellie,

You just gave us, in very few short words, the exact definition of heron addiction. Heroin attacks the brain and makes us "LOVE IT" even though we know it's killing us.

Heroin figures out to make our own body, thoughts and emotions work against us, and even though intellectually we know what it's doing, we can't stop loving it. That's why heroin is such as insidious addiction, we know we can't live with it but it convinces us that we can't live without it.

But Kellie, I want you to know that there is hope for us, that we can live as we used to and be daddies little girl again. Many, many, of us have broken free from the grip of heroin and moved past the drug stopping it from controlling our lives.

Please consider going to an AA or NA meetings today, and start going everyday and working the steps. The 12 steps show us who we are and who we can be without heroin. Work the steps and find a sponsor who has been when you're at and can help you to learn how to end your love affair with heroin.

Just like breaking up with any lover, it will be hard and painful, but the rewards of ending such an abusive relationship are well worth it.

Thanks so much for sharing and I will pray that you go to meetings and reconnect with your higher power,

Debbie

I pray for you

Dear Kellie,
You are in my sincerest prayers. Please start with one meeting at a time. I've been in a relationship with someone who is much like yourself and I pray for her too. Try and have faith and you WILL get through this.

God bless you.
