I want to quit but can't find a way without knowing my family

by Irfan
(Mymensingh, Bangladesh)

I'm a Intermediate 2nd year student..... I'm addicted to yaba from last 1 year. I take it once in a week. I want to quit, but my family thinks I'm totally clean. I don't want to hurt them at any cost. I love my parents very much. I am also afraid to go to any doctor for help(cz if they try to contact my family).

Now what should i do? Is there any hope for me?

Please help me...

Start going to meetings in your area.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Irfan,

Please start going to AA or NA meetings in your area. AA is Alcoholics Anonymous and NA is Narcotics Anonymous. They offer the 12 step program to treat drug and/or alcohol addiction.

Here is a website that has meetings in and around Dhaka:

Please begin going to these meetings to learn about your disease. Yaba addiction is a disease that is often fatal if left untreated. The Yaba is attacking your brain and likely causing irrational thoughts and feelings about your family.

Keeping our disease a secret from our family is a bad idea. The more we are open and acknowledge our drug use the more likely we are to stop using. The more we deny it and hide it the more likely we'll keep using.
