The battle

3 1

I'm sharing today to hopefully give an addict some inspiration to go in to recovery. My story starts 4 years ago at the age of 16. I started smoking pot at that age. The first time I got high I was instantly addicted. I was smoking daily until I was 18. Thats when I had my first child. I was still smoking just not everyday. But then addiction brought me back in and I cheated on my now ex fiance while she was pregnant with my son and while I was high. After that I was abstenent from pot. Then last september 2012 She cheated on me and left me. Thats when the real addiction started. I was doing ecstacy and pills. That all ended on March 15, 2013 when I overdosed on ecstacy and Ambien the night before my daughters second birthday. After that I went to rehab and today is 73 days clean from all drugs.

I really hope this helped. Someone please E-mail me back at if my story has helped anyone.
