drug recovery

its been a long four months, but i can officially say that i’m four months clean. didn’t think i could make it two weeks, but here i am with four months clean. I’m starting to feel like a normal person, like i can function without having to depend on drugs. and thats a crazy thought because i used to be dependent on drugs. its nice having things in life, like a working car, a roof over my head, going to school, having the support group that i need. just everything right now is going great. 

The worst part about anything that’s self destructive is that it’s so intimate. You become so close with your addictions and illnesses that leaving them behind is like killing the part of yourself that taught you how to survive.

When you’re using drugs, you’re driven by this mystical black energy, a force inside you that just won’t quit. And the weaker you get, the more you feed into that energy, and the more it fucks with you. When your spirit becomes dark and your lifestyle becomes dark, your existence is susceptible to infiltration by dark spirits. I’ve seen it so many times with addicts. You can see that they’re controlled by dark energy, the way they look, their appearance, their voice, their behavior, it’s not them.

Stop addict shaming, rid the stigma and you will see more addicts in recovery.
—  without the shitty stigma surrounding addicts, more addicts would feel comfortable seeking help.
You wanna know the worst part about coming clean about your drug addiction and getting clean? Anytime you have an ‘off’ day, you get accused of being on drugs and then they assume you’re lying about it.
