Almost lost everything
I was introduced by my marijuana supplier. Working successfully. White collar professional. When they offered crack, I was immediately hooked my first hit. Like...DAMN. this is IT.
IT lead over a 15 year period of sacrificing my career. I borrowed, stole petty cash, and moved back home. Would go to work with brain burned up. Function cause I knew my stuff enough to cover myself I thought... Then I got fired for petty cash fraud.
Thank God, for the next 20 years after, I dropped the habit. Cause a very good woman took me in to her home and life. Found new and well paying employment. She became the joy of my life. Older, but soldered my reintroduction to responsibility. She has since now passed. I am now retired with financial sustenance and crack free...
