My addiction took over my life. I became the very drug I consumed. I became empty & soulless. I was full of anger hatred & guilt. I continued to use so I didn't feel my guilt & my pain. The ppl around me feared my death on a daily basis. My body was dying along with my soul. I was using 5 grams of cocaine a day. I used the day day I drove myself to rehab. I used the entire 8 hour drive. I almost didn't make it. My addiction would not let go without a fight. I wanted to stop but it had a hold of me that it was not willing to let go of. I have been clean for one year by the grace of God. I will always be an addict in recovery. I need to never put my guard down. I have learned that my life is worth fighting for. If I can help anyone in need please ask. I am here & thankful to be alive

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
