I have been an addict for well over half my life, I been to countless institutions through out Minnesota, both treatment and prison.
I made a choice to get sober and live a clean and healthy lifestyle.
My thoughts are if we can put in all those hours and days we did searching for drugs and being high, then we should be able to put those same hours and and efforts into staying sober. And by that I mean going to meetings, reaching out for the help and support that is out there. Dedicating yourself to your sobriety.
Yes it's hard, and for some it's harder than others. Honestly there is no excuses, I tried every one of them. We must be willing to put the work into our sobriety and well-being as we did to seek that ugly lifestyle we were living.
So please remember this. Put them hours you spent searching for dope into searching for hope and success. It gets tough but keep pushing it will get better. I did it you can too.
