I'm addicted to meth and I like drinking?

by Saundra

Hi, I am Saundra and I am addicted to mainly meth but I do all drugs and I like drinking and I am always on something.

I am tired of living like this. My mom has lots of health problems and she is not going to live forever and she needs to be worried about her health instead of raising my kids. I can sober up but for some reason I use again.

It's been like this since I was 12 and I'm scared to go to rehab. I just want someone to come hold my hand and just to go to the rehab with me. I am scared to tell my family because they are always disappointed in my decisions and it's not that I want to live my life as a drug addict, it's that I need help to stop.

I'm on probation and I don't want to lose my kids. I go to NA meetings but I am afraid it is not enough. My husband is getting out of prison this month and he is going to be sober and i don't want to be a bad influence on him.

I need someone to help me tell my family that I am willing to go, I just need someone that loves me in my corner to give me the boost and I need to get away from my ex boyfriend. He is a very big downfall and trigger but I care about him.

Please, who can I get to come to me tell my family and take me directly to treatment?

Find a good sponsor

Dear Saundra,

Addiction is such a difficult problem and getting someone to help us to get past our fears can be REALLY effective in battling this terrible disease.

You say that your going to NA meetings, that's great and I hope you're working the 12 steps as part of attending the meetings. I would recommend that you find a sponsor at your meetings and have them go with you to tell your family that you're willing to go to rehab and stop using if they will go with you.

Sponsors have been where you're at now and can be so helpful because of what they're been through. Find a female sponsor and ask them to help you to do the necessary steps to get into rehab.

Then you can begin to get your life back and maybe, in the future, you can sponsor someone else and help them just as your sponsor helped you.

Good Luck,

Debbie
