It's taken over my life .

by Mckayla Lynn
(New York )

My name is McKayla , I'm 19 years old. I've been an active user since I was about 13. I've been in and out of about 6 different in and outpatient rehabs.

Currently I have about 4 days sober I've been regularly attending meetings but it doesn't seem to get easier in my head. It's all I think about. I want to get high so bad but I know that I can't and that it's not what's best for me.

My latest addiction was to Cocaine, the white devil . Which took a really horrible toll on me. I have a HUGE hole in my nose from it and get constant nosebleeds. I know using is not what I should be doing but I need to get rid of all the demons I have inside of me. Lately they've been haunting me.

Work the 12 steps to learn to control your demons.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Mckayla Lynn,

Congratulations on four days of sobriety, we all know how truly difficult it is to stay clean especially in the beginning.

Please join an active 12-step group and work the steps as hard as you can. As we re-connect with our higher power we gain the strength to fight this awful demon of addiction. We learn how truly powerless we are and how much power our higher power has to get us the through the difficult times we're facing.

Many, many of us have worked the 12-steps and learned how to live the happy, joyous an free live we've always yearned for.

Good Luck,

Debbie
