I have an amazing life because I have freed myself from my drug use!

“I have an amazing life because I have freed myself from my drug use. And this is only the beginning.”

Before I arrived here I was addicted to heroin and speed, among other drugs. Doing drugs was a part of my daily routine. In fact, it became my daily routine. I not only jeopardized, but sacrificed everything I had going for myself. I went from being an A student to a dropout. I went from a dedicated, spirited person to a beat-up, discouraged and unhappy heroin addict. I isolated from the people that loved me and surrounded myself with people who used me. I went from being proud to being ashamed. It was obvious drugs had weakened and defeated me.  (Now) I have an amazing life because I have freed myself from my drug use. And this is only the beginning.
