Cocaine addiction

by Sean
(Wales, UK)

I grew up not being able to be social, it was a very difficult, way worse now. I left school dad had a brain hemorrhage. I cared for him from 15 to 21, fell in love, got a job with my uncle and lived in my own. I knew it wouldn't last for ever. I worried myself sick because it wouldn't last, and I'd have to face my issues.

5 years later I lost my job, my mind, and split up with my gf. I became homeless so I started selling cocaine with a death wish. I did well with it, it lasted all of 5 years, I didn't expect to live. That's the hard part, I'd snort it, 7 to ten grams a day a ounce in one day the most of the cut stuff. I didn't even know I had a problem until one day I decided I can't do this any more.

Two years later, now things still tough I'm working but its a struggle. I get depressed deeply often, but I just gotta push through. It's not easy, but it's easy to die, try living, good luck people!

Great message, living is worth it!
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Sean,

Thanks for sharing your story. It sounds like you've had a difficult life but that you've chosen to live it and good for you. I agree, live is hard but living it free from the slavery of drugs is worth it.

And good luck to all of those out there trying to end their bondage to their drug of choice and move toward the drug-free life they're seeking.

Debbie
