Eight months sober

Discussion in 'Psychedelics' started by HomeGrownIdeas, Sep 18, 2013.

  1. I am going to keep this quick and to the point otherwise I would have damn near a whole book that would end up being written here. I made many posts on this forum during some of the lowest lows, as well as many posts during some of my highest highs. There was multiple suicide attempts over last fall/winter and finally overdosing on heroin for the fourth or fifth time and ending up in a coma for three and a half days. I'm sure some of you remember reading my posts about my monkey dust i.v. and moon rock i.v.. Now approaching my eighth month clean and feeling like a completely different person. I am in my second semester of college and keeping a decent job while at school. Chasing my dreams and passions. Being able to break away from the negative relationships I had with others and beginning to forgive myself for my past is what was and is some of the most important steps I've taken to let my natural self wake up. It has been hard, the days get harder and harder. I've heard people say "getting clean is easy, now comes life". Yep..now comes life...

    Congrats to you...yes, a lot of us experience this in some way or another... we often search for something to numb us and never developed the ability to healthily deal with the thing that is life...but you will find ways, keep being hopeful. Many people have been in your shoes, every step of the way, search them out, be inspired and celebrate all of your little victories.

    you are an inspiration to many of us too! :) Thanks for sharing.

    I thought you were dead, you were seriously scaring us at times! This is the best news I've read all month! :D Words cannot describe how amazing, positive and wonderful this is. Keep at it and you will see life offers so much more than those drugs ever could, you just have to tease it out more :D

    What are you taking in college?
